Gabriel Medina has taken out the Fiji Pro 2016, in huge wave conditions at Cloudbreak.

The Brazilian surfer defeated Matt Wilkinson in the final held in firing 10-to-12 foot surf. For many, it was the biggest day of surfing of the season so far.

Medina built his heat total with two consecutive solid scores – a 7.33 and an 8.27 – and put Wilkinson in a situation from which he would never recover.
