What is Gabriel Medina Packing for Portugal?

9 October 2019

Taking a peek inside 2x World Champion Gabriel Medina’s suitcase for the 2019 Rip Curl Pro Portugal.

Right now all eyes are on Gabriel Medina, the 2x and defending WSL World Champion, as he leads the race through the final events of the year. It’s crunch time. And before it comes down to the wire at Pipeline – if it comes down to the wire at Pipeline – Gabriel is headed to one of his favourite waves in the world. Supertubos, Peniche, Portugal.

It’s at Supertubos that the best surfers in the world fight to become the champion at the Rip Curl Pro Portugal, pulling into heaving barrels, showing the world what they’re made of.

Like we said this is one of Gabriel’s favourite waves. He’s got the place dialled, and more often than not he refers to Peniche as a second home.

So, what does a 2x World Champion pack as he prepares to defend his World Title in the second-to-last event of the year? We peeked inside his suitcase.

Here is what Gabriel Medina packs for Portugal... a great guide to what works when you’re on land and in the water in one of the most stunning countries in the world.

Using the strongest military-grade CORDURA® fabric with triple needle inseams, the Searchers Pant is built to last. Featuring a back left welt pocket with zipper entry for security, and an internal draw cord, stash pockets and waistband hanger loop for functionality, the Searchers Pant are indispensable when on the road.
