Congratulations to Julian Wilson for winning the Rip Curl Pro Portugal!
Julian edged out Gabriel Medina for the win with a 1.1 point margin even though Gabriel pulled a very sick FS reverse as we would expect. Perhaps the judges are jaded from seeing so many of these moves by Gabriel. The judges were rewarding barrels more at this venue with the name of Super Tubes and Julian connected a little more tube time for the close win in the final. Good surfing by all went down.
