And Gabriel Medina invokes the might of the divine to wrap up title before Pipe…
Shortly, maybe today, likely tomoz, the penultimate WCT event of the year hits Portugal. The two-time world champ Gabriel Medina can wrap the title if the cards fall thus.
First, he’s gotta make it to the semi’s or better.
If he gets second in the final, Filipe has to lose in or before the round of 32, Jordy or Kolohe have to lose before or in the quarters and Italo, who won the contest last year, has to lose before or in the round of 16.
If Gabriel wins the event, Filipe has to lose in or before the round of 16, Jordy and Kolohe in or before the final, and Italo in or before the semi’s.
Earlier today, Gabriel, who is one of Brazil’s 123 million Catholics, invoked the might of God with a post of Instagram referencing Hebrews 11.3. I’m a Catholic, I know this verse, the eleventh chapter of the Epistle to the Hebes.
It’s a doozy, gives a real sweet hit of voltage.
In essence, trust God’s will ’cause he an all-seeing motherfucker who ain’t afraid to poke his gigantic wang into your business if he feels you deserve it.
A hundred thousand likes already. Don’t tell me that ain’t divine.
My fav part of the Bible and it always gave me a little kick as a kid, can be found at Genesis 19: 31-32.
“One day the older daughter said to the younger, ‘Our father is old, and there is no man around here to give us children—as is the custom all over the earth. Let’s get our father to drink wine and then sleep with him and preserve our family line through our father.’”
As for the waves, and when the contest might run, in an email to the event’s surfers, The WSL writes:
“Surfers, this is the plan for Plan for the next few days at the MEO/RC Pro; Main Site at Supertubos and 3 Back-up Sites. Pico da Mota, Pico do Fabril & Lagide. We should have 3 days of surf from Thursday onwards at Supertubos (Wednesday only a small chance), after that, forecast doesn’t look too bright, so we may need to run heats in onshore conditions in order to finish the event. We’ll always make sure that there are enough opportunities for every competitor. At this stage we’ll move sites only overnight, pending wind, swell and tide conditions, The good news is that we have the bet banks in Supertubos in the last 5 years. We’ll keep you posted.”
Also, Pip Toledo’s back has repaired and he’s “ready to rip.”
