2016 Stand Up World Tour : Izzi Gomez takes victory at Stop #1 in Hawaii :
samedi 6 février 2016 –
While the Hawaii leg of the Stand Up World Tour has somehow been a stumbling block for the young Floridian talent, in 2016, Izzi showed no signs of any weaknesses at this year’s Turtle Bay Pro, putting on an impressive display of high performance surfing and demonstrating that time spent in the islands pays off as she takes the well deserved victory of the season at Turtle Bay.
Izzi’s powerful and progressive style once again not only wows the crowds and judges alike, but keeps her on top of the World after Stop 1 of the 2016 Stand Up World Tour.
Fiona Wylde continues to take the world by storm, making the Final and battling to the end with Izzi Gomez, to secure 2nd place
As one of the USA’s leading Stand Up Paddle athletes, Fiona Wylde (Starboard) continues to go from strength to strength and position herself as one of the sport’s leading Ladies, having finished the season on a high last year on the Stand Up World Series in second place and then putting on a stellar performance again here at the Turtle Bay Pro to finish runner up at Stop 1 of the Stand Up World Surfing Tour.
Like Izzi, Fiona is another one leading the way with her progressive style and critical surfing, demonstrating that there is real talent in the sport and that the performance level amongst the girls continues to sky rocket. Drawing on her multi-sport background, Fiona’s committed, and driving bottom turn in particular draws parallels with the likes of Kai Lenny (Naish), Zane Schweitzer (Starboard) and Bernd Roediger (Naish), who’s windsurfing background has provided phenomenal fundamentals for Stand Up Paddling that were clearly evident here at Turtle Bay.
This year’s Tour is full of impressive talent, and there is no doubt that it is going to be the most competitive yet as we are excited to see it all unfold.
