World Surf League!

The World Surf League Championship Tour for 2015 finished up this week in Hawaii, and many familiar favorites dominate the final top ten list for the year.  But, one of your biggest takeaways from the results of recent years has to be the ascendancy of Brazil as the powerhouse country in this sport.  With back-to-back wins in this very competitive tour, I'd say they're on a roll.

... plus Gabriel Medina of Brazil, who finished #1 last year and #3 this year.  Watch for him in the 2016 tour, that kicks off in Australia in March.
