The Inertia

Gabriel Medina, as you may or may not know, sat out the first part of the year this season, citing mental health. He had to get himself right after an exhausting title run last year and big changes in his personal life. But the man looks good right now, and a backflip and a near miss prove it (we know, there’s more to it than that). This video captured by Dan Scott at Duranbah in Australia shows a healthy looking Medina chucking air after air after air. He makes backflips look so easy, doesn’t he? And one surfer gets an up-close and personal view of a Medina punt.
