As the biggest celebration of surfing on tour, Rio is as much about the fans on the beach as the surfers in the water. Their adoration for the Brazilian athletes is unrivaled and there’s no setting like this in the sport. It will be a test for Gabriel Medina, Tatiana Weston-Webb, Filipe Toledo, and every surfer on tour to block out the pressure and focus on the fight for the WSL Final 5.
