Starboard’s Izzi Gomez Comes From Behind Win in Brazil!
What an amazing come back from Starboard Dream Team Rider Izzi Gomez (USA) to win the 2nd stop of the Stand Up World Tour in Brazil.
Izzi (only 14yrs old) was sent to the repercharge round early, then went on to face hometown favorite and current leader of the women’s division, Nicole Pacelli, in the finals.
This is Izzi’s 3rd win on the World tour since entering in 2013. She has won in Huntington Beach, France and now in Brazil.
Izzi and the entire Starboard SUP Surf Team are heading to Abu Dhabi for stop 3 on the Stand Up World Tour. This will be an interesting event as the wave pool will be a lot different then the conditions these riders have been used to in Brazil. Good luck Izzi and Team Starboard.
