World #1, Matt Wilkinson and World #3, Gabriel Medina along with Indonesian god, Garut Widiarta dusted off the spirit of The Search and boarded a boat with no plan beyond getting tubed, laying some rail, playing some pong, and unwinding at night with a few beers and plenty of laughs in the 12th episode of The Search.
With the World Surf League title race heating up, Wilkinson and Medina disappeared from the media spotlight in between J-Bay and Teahupoo to charge one of the worlds best lefts! The waves pumped and the boys let their surfing do the talking in some postcard sets in the tropical paradise. Widiarta was quick to point out that you don’t have to be a world title contender to get some extended barrel time as well.
I used to watch all the DVDs. I remember when Rip Curl first sponsored me I thought I was going to go on all these trips to the middle of nowhere, to find perfect waves with my friends, and now we’re here, and it’s sick! – Gabriel Medina
