From destiny to dynasty: who is surfing's next king?

Gabriel Medina and John John Florence are both electrifying, polarizing, generational talents.
They've each won one Title: Medina in 2014, and Florence in 2016.

Adding a second this year could be the beginning of surfing's next dynasty.

But only one can do it.

the only pipe master

He's done it once – can he do it again?

Julian Wilson is the only Title contender who has won Pipe before.

And to win the Title this year, he'll have to win again.

power meets power

Jordy is an underdog.

Two events ago, he was in first. He's fallen to third going into Pipe.

But Jordy is one of the most powerful surfers in history.

To win the Title, he'll have to put it all on the line at one of surfing's most powerful waves: Pipeline.

What will happen when power meets power, under pressure?

It's been 40 years since a ZAF won the Title. If Jordy doesn't win, it might be another 40. Can he do it?

Will Gabriel cement Brazil's place as a surfing superpower by becoming Brazil's first bicampeão?

An entire nation rests on Julian's shoulders as the only remaining Aussie in the race.

 

And it's all happening here, at surfing's home, the ultimate proving ground. hawaii.
