Wow, the writing was on the wall all year that this might happen but the young kid from Brasil, Gabriel Medina has made it a reality. It has not been an easy road for him and he had to battle it out last night amongst the best surfers in the world.
First Kelly fell and then Mick, the only person who could stop the World Champ was Julian Wilson in the final with two amazing waves.
Wilson eneded up taking the pipemasters and the triple crown. It was a day for the young guns, is this the new era? will Kelly retire next year? Tune in for the first event of the year at Snapper rocks to find out.
Congrats to Gabriel on winning the world title and to Julian Wilson for the pipemasters and the triple crown.
