Do you want to know which is our better moments selection of 2017?
Gabriel Medina – Quiksilver Pro France
Total Heat Score: 16.40
Def. John John Florence
The total punctuation of Medina doesn’t seem to be something incredible. But the situation lived against Florence in France himself was more than notable. It had to win yes or yes to keep alive his dream to do with the worldwide title.
John John Florence – Drug Aware Margaret River Pro
Total Heat Score: 19.27
Def. Jack Freestone
Jack Freestone was fantastic but Florence dismantled totally the wave of Margaret River. With his inseparable model Pyzel Ghost, JJ Florence dominated entirely the wave. A wave that a lot of surfers haven’t understood and less can surf this way.
Margaret caused the bad humour of the majority of the surfers this day. But Florence is passionate about the breaks with potholes, stairs and other things. It was a game of boys of the that enjoyed and definitely did us enjoy the other.
His twists, torsions… will not be easy to forget his performance in Margaret River of this 2017.
Filipe Toledo – Tops Open J-Bay
Total heat score: 19.00
Round four, Heat 3
The Toledo’s performance was a before and an afterwards in J-Bay. In only one event, he achieved to show that another way to surf this wave was possible. Besides, in the fourth round, went a walk for him leave backwards to a big like Julian Wilson.
Corona Open J-Bay has described this year as one of the best of the surf history in this wave, one of the best of the world. Toledo, with peel green and everything, went definitely the best surfer of the week. Until Mick Fanning recognises without a blink that is the fastest surfer.
Jordy Smith – Tops Open J-Bay
Total Heat Score: 20.00
Round Three, Heat 7
Def. Leonardo Fioravanti
The Nelson Mandela’s day at all pluses and at all minus, the South African did his stellar apparition in J-Bay. This day the wave woke up with some perfect conditions that the local hero knew, to spare, take advantage of.
His performance has to definitely appear between the 3 better of the year. It began relatively calm with a punctuation of 6, but little took in choosing an enormous wave for the delight of all the presents.
Jordy Smith achieved a 20 perfect. A pleasure for the spectators.
Julian Wilson – Billabong Pro Tahiti
Total Heat Score: 18.96
Def. Gabriel Medina
The most fierce duels during this year have been between Julian Wilson and Medina. Especially in his clash in Teahupoo. These two giants used to see each other face to face in the final and they are used to to be a performance memorable.
“Showing the determination, the skill and the determination of the street fighter, Julian Wilson returned the combination to defeat to Gabriel Medina in a Final epic in the Billabong Pro Tahiti 2017.”
After Medina took three closed waves, Wilson saw his opportunity. Generally, the Brazilian puts until the ropes and exhausts his opponents. But this time Wilson knew to take advantage of, and he did it.
When they remained 5 minutes, achieving the tube and going out transparently, leaving us this historical moment.
John John Florence – Billabong Pipe Masters
Total Heat Score: 8.77 + 8.83 = 17.60
Julian Wilson – Billabong Pipe Masters
Total Heat Score: 1.57 + 1.07 = 2.64
So this is our final selection, hope you enjoy it.
