Gabriel Medina, King of the Groms 2009!
Local time 7:56
The last day of the Quiksilver Pro France saw 15-year-old Brazilian wonder kid, Gabriel Medina winning the Quiksilver World King Of the Groms Finals in historic style. Medina scored a maximum possible 20-point combined heat score in the final in an unbelievable display of surfing talent.
The two perfect 10-point scores were given by the judges, which rewarded Medina's incredible technical ability. Few surfers in the world today can boast such a repertoire of aerial manoeuvres, even fewer can perform this level of surfing heat after heat in a competition environment.
Rounds 2 and 3 of the Quiksilver King of the Groms' International final took place this morning at the Bourdaines beach in Seignosse.
Just as their elders from the World's Tour, the 16 young surfers qualified for the international final, in turn, enjoyed the French beachbreaks.
