Galaxy Surfboard

To eliminate the distance between Gabriel Medina and his coach during practice, Samsung created the Galaxy Surfboard. Made by shaper Johnny Cabianca, the person responsible for developing the boards of world champion Gabriel Medina, the Galaxy Surfboard has a Samsung smartphone as its technological heart, allowing Gabriel Medina to receive instructions in real time from his coach while practicing in the open sea, helping to maximize his performance. And to motivate him even more, the board can also receive messages of encouragement from fans by using a predefined hashtag via twitter. The messages received are displayed on a high-frequency LED screen built into the board, allowing Medina to receive feedback from his coach in real time during practice. Thus helping to increase his performance and motivation without having to return to shore.
