Gabe surfed every single morning for 2 hours before the US Open. He'd freesurf midday, and then he'd wax his 30 minute heat. He, undoubtedly, has natural ability but he also has a tremendous work ethic. Ironically, he attributed his stamina to diet of "a lot of milk and tortilla". As Gabe develops more competitive savvy and perhaps a level of fitness akin to Slater or Fanning, he'll likely find a new gear. Gabe will not only raise the talent level of professional surfing, but also the dedication level. Bravo, Gabriel! Can't wait. Music by Stevie Wonder Song, Living for the City

Dane gets mobbed on Southside, but surfs in anonymity just 100 yards north. He weaves though the crowds, lifeguards, and bikini's en route to a Quarterfinal finish for the 2nd year in a row.
