    whatttt? medina is not a better surfer than JJF. he's beat him in a few heats but it's not even close how much better of an overall surfer JJF is compared to him.

    jj definitely better,but hes no medina.the thing about gabs is hes consistant,he lands 99.8% of his airs.i would like to see jj do better on tour but its hard when conditions are shytty.gabs is used to surfin shytty brazo waves

    so your point is that even though gm just beat jjf 2x jjf is still a better surfer??? and 'its not even close?'

    I only started watching the comps last year, never was really into it. I think it's awesome to watch some of the best surfers surf these spots though. With that being said I think jjf is the better surfer if you take the competition aspect out of it. In good waves like pipe his surfing is phenomenal. He's got airs but his power surfing and barrel riding is where he really shines I think.

    In competition Medina is smarter and does better because of it. He surfs off the score, builds up a good score and goes for the hail mary when necessary. John John just goes for a 10 every wave which is great, just not for competition.

    losing a few heats to someone does not make them better than you. contest surfing aside then, JJF is still miles better then medina.

    aside from the one small clip from the winter on the north shore i've never seen a medina free surf clip. all he does is surf contests and that's a small portion of what makes a "good surfer"

    medina is an overly tight, contest machine that tends to do well in crappy waves. how'd medina do at cloud break last year or any wave of consequence for that matter.

    um, i think he got second to kelly. and that 'just one clip' of him riding pipe could be compared to a virtuoso
    (gm) playing a stradivarius (pipe). comment away but watch wotw..november i think for which he got a check.
