Chippa Wilson begun to speak about it, and BOOM, that’s it, ESPN, the famous channel which organizes the X-Games launched: “The Real Surf”. That’s it, the surfing is in the X-Games, but it’s not a traditional surfing competition, but a video competition. Eight professional surfers were invited to produce a video of 1 minute in length and were judged by a jury stemming from the surf industry .
So it’s through the video competition “The Real Surf”, that some of the great stars of the surf are going head to head, as their Internet audience decides on the winners!
Gabriel Médina, the winner of the competition, filmed the best sequence with his progressive style and beat Kelly Slater, Chippa Wilson, Dion Agius, Josh Kerr, Jordy Smith, Matt Meola and Albee Layer. Gabriel walked away with a $50.000 check and a golden medal from the X-Games.

The winner of our $4k in 24 hours competition, Gregg Pearce, has sent through some images and videos of the extreme experiences that he wanted to complete as a part of his entry! Take a look at some of the incredible things that Gregg has gotten up to, using $4,000 from SurfStitch in 24 hours to make his day extraordinary!
“With SurfStitch knocking at the door, id buy a new Stand up paddle board for sure.
I’d start with the sunrise standing on the Bondi Beach Sand, filming the first light with my Sony Action Cam in hand.
I’d get a tattoo before the clock strikes eleven, then go jump from a plane like im falling from heaven.
As the sun starts to set id do the harbour bridge climb, recording each moment at a time.
Then off to a bar to party with friends and record their smiles, id make the $4,000 go for miles.
As the sun begins to rise again on the sand, id cheers the extraordinary day provided by the SurfStitch brand.”
The Bridge Climb
The painful process…
The finished product.
And a big thanks from Gregg to SurfStitch! We hope you had an absolutely extraordinary 24 hours!
