This is your LIFE. Do what you LOVE, and do it often. If you don’t like something, change it. If you don’t like your job, quit. If you don’t have enough time, stop watching TV. If you are looking for the love of your life, stop; They will be waiting for you when you start doing things you love. Stop over analyzing, life is simple. All emotions are beautiful. When you eat, appreciate every last bite. Open your mind, arms and heart to new things and people, we are united in our differences. Ask the next person you see what their passion is, and share you inspiring dream with them. Travel often; getting lost will help you find yourself. Some opportunities only come once, seize them. Life is about the people you meet, and the things you create with them so go out and start creating. Life is short. Live your dream and share you passion…
—  Carissa Moore, Professional Surfer A.K.A My biggest inspiration

i do believe that this is just the beginning of a new era in professional surfing. it’s not a 3 men race anymore, between mick, kelly and parko. new superstars such as the one in the picture, gabriel medina, proved it that surfing is in a quick transition and developing. 

many questions remain in people’s mind like “can gabriel do it again?” or “how will gabriel behave next year knowing he has to defend his title?”. that’s something only time can answer, but i’m sure of one thing, this kid isn’t going down without a fight. parabéns gabriel, parabéns brasil!
