Starboard Dominates Abu Dhabi Wave Pool – Izzi Gomez in 1st!
An outstanding performance from all our Starboard Team Riders in Abu Dhabi over the weekend, with Young Phenom, Izzi Gomez, backing up her win from Brazil with a first place finish in the wave pool event of the Stand UP World Tour.
Izzi had a hard fought battle with teammate Iballa Moreno (2nd), who showed off some of her best surfing skills and earned a 2nd place finish.
The win by Izzi secures her standing in first place on the World tour, not a bad feat for a 14 year old!
In the men’s action it was Sean Poynter from Starboard, who consistently earned some of the highest scores in the pool. Sean went up against Kai Lenny in the finals and came up just short for the title and landed in 2nd on the podium.
We congratulate the entire Starboard SUP Surf team!
As the surf Tour takes a break in the action we will wait for the results of the race series as we look for Connor Baxter to continue his winning streak from Brazil. Good luck to all our racers competing in the beautiful landscape of the Abu Dhabi Desert.
