Done. That was a fun weekend. Congratulations to Candice Appleby and Mo Freitas for making it a clean sweep of the event, with fighting efforts from Bicho Jimenez, Fernando Stalla and Laura Quetglas.

But in all seriousness that was actually a pretty fun way to end what has been a super fun event. Massive thanks to the organising team for pulling off a great event and for looking after the traveling crew so well. Thanks to all the local and international paddlers for the fun competition, both on and off the water.

The Australian National SUP and Paddlebord Team achieved 9 out of the 12 possible Gold Medals awarding them the overall Team Gold Medal and the Club Waikiki-Peru Team Trophy for the second consecutive year.

Once again, the final day was greeted with beautiful weather and surf conditions for crowning the rest of the champions. Nicole Pacelli from Brazil won the day’s first Gold Medal in Women’s SUP Surfing. The following heat was the Men’s SUP Surfing Final that 22 year old Sean Poynter (USA) won. Later in the day, the SUP Technical Race Finals took place and Australia’s Angie Jackson and Denmark’s Casper Steinfath won the Gold Medals. The last event of the day was the Team Relay, which Australia won.

“Thank you all for making the 2013 ISA SUP and Paddleboard World Championship the best SUP and Paddleboard event in history,” said ISA President Fernando Aguerre. “With a record amount of athletes from a record 23 countries, this event is certainly the most diverse SUP and Paddleboard event in history. “

Aguerre continued, “We had teams from all continents in the world, with all their diversity. They proved to the world that SUP and Paddleboard are universal sports that appeal to both genders, to all ages, and to people of diverse ethnic, religious, national and socio-economical groups. In closing, I would like to thank our friends from Peru, Karin Sierralta, VP of the ISA and organizer of the event, and our friends from IPD (Peruvian Institute of Sports) and its president, Francisco Boza, the Peruvian Olympic Committee (COP) and its president Jose Quiñones, and ADO, the Olympians Peruvian Association, and of course, the legendary Club Waikiki and FENTA, the Peruvian Surfing Federation.”

The Final Day started with the Women’s SUP Surfing where the Brazilian Nicole Pacelli (13.17) achieved the Gold Medal after defeating the Australian Shakira Westdrop (AUS, 12.6), Iballa Ruano (SPA, 10.6) and Caroline Angibaud (FRA, 7.14).

The Aussie, Westdrop, had a great start to the final, and was ahead of the other competitors, but Pacelli found a good wave that awarded her 8.17 points on the last wave of the Final, that made her jump from the last place to the first and taking the Gold Medal and the Hector Velarde E. Women’s SUP Surfing Perpetual Trophy, named in honor of Peru’s legendary surfer and patron of the sport.

In the Men’s SUP Surfing Final, Sean Poynter (USA) had one of the best runs of the whole contest. In the first wave of the heat, Poynter achieved 9.33 points, the second highest single wave score of the contest adding to his total heat score of 17.83, the highest total heat score of the event. Poynter received the Hector Velarde E. Men’s SUP Surfing Perpetual Trophy.

2012’s SUP Surfing Gold Medalist Antoine Delpero fought hard to pass Poynter earning an 8.23 in the last minutes of the heat, but it wasn’t enough to overtake Poynter and defend his Championship. Tamil Martino (PER, 14.00) got the Silver Medal, Delpero (FRA, 13.8) the Bronze and Beau Nixon (AUS, 13.00) the Copper.

In the Women’s Technical Paddleboard Race, Angela Jackson won her second Gold Medal of the event defeating Olivia Piana (FRA) with the Silver Medal, Barbara Brasil (BRA) finished with the Bronze Medal, and Laura Quetglas (SPA) with the Copper Medal.

The Final of the Men’s SUP Technical race showed an amazing performance from Denmark’s Casper Steinfath.

From the beginning of the race, Steinfath took the lead and never looked back. Steinfath was followed closely by Jamie Mitchell, who caught up to him by riding a four foot wave to the beach from the outside buoy, 300 meters offshore. As the approached the beach, where they still needed to run across the cobblestone rocks to the finish line, both competitors showed great signs of sportsmanship and camaraderie as they high-fived each other, wishing each other luck before sprinting to the Gold and Silver Medals. When dismounting his board on the beach, Mitchell tripped on the shore break and fell behind Steinfath, who in Denmark’s first ISA event ever, achieved a Gold Medal for the Dannish Team.

The battle for 3rd and 4th place was very close too, but in the sprint to the finish line, South Africa’s Dylan Frick beat New Zealand’s Paul Jackson awarding him the Bronze Medal and Jackson the Copper Medal.

10 things you need to know about the 2013 ISA World SUP and Paddleboard Championship

The second annual ISA World StandUp Paddle (SUP) and Paddleboard Championship will take place February 24 to March 2, 2013 on the beaches of Miraflores, Lima, Peru – home of the famous Club Waikiki and the cradle of Peruvian surfing.

In this second edition of the World Championship, the best men and women from all over the globe will gather in Miraflores to determine the Gold Medalists in SUP Surfing, SUP Racing and Prone Paddleboarding.

1. The Event
The ISA World SUP and Paddleboard Championship will gather the world’s best SUP Racers and Surfers, and Paddleboarders to compete in a National Teams competition.

It is an “Olympic Style” event – teams compete for medals and the honor of representing their countries. The excellence of competitive paddling reaches its highest level as each participant defends his or her flag.

2. The Competition
The ISA World SUP and Paddleboard Championship is an annual event that returns to Peru for its second edition in the beautiful waves at La Pampilla, Miraflores, in the surfing city of Lima, Peru, and will feature defending Gold Medalists and up-and-coming athletes from around the world.

3. The History
The ISA is Surfing’s World Governing Authority as recognized by the International Olympic Committee. The ISA first held the World SUP and Paddleboard Championship in January 2012 due to the increasing popularity and growing talent level participating in these disciplines on a global level.

During the inaugural World Championship last year at the same location, the Australian team won six out of the eleven possible Individual Gold Medals plus the Team Relay Race, giving the Aussies the overall Team Gold Medal and the Club Waikiki-Peru Trophy, establishing them as the world leader in SUP and Paddleboard.

4. The Mission
With the goal of developing all wave riding sports around the world, the ISA has returned to Peru for the fifth time and second year in a row for the World SUP and Paddleboard Championship.

Produced by Latin Pro and the Peruvian Surfing Federation, FENTA, Peru hosted the ISA World Junior Surfing Championship in 2011, the ISA World Surfing Games in 2010, both taking place in Punta Hermosa, and the ISA World Masters Surfing Championship in 2008 at Punta Rocas.

5. The Support
Thanks to the continued support from legendary Club Waikiki, IPD (Peruvian Institute of Sports), ADO (Peruvian Association of Olympic Athletes), and COP (Peruvian Olympic Committee), the ISA is looking forward to improving upon the success of the inaugural 2012 ISA World SUP and Paddleboard Championship.

6. The Numbers
Over 120 SUPers and Paddleboarders from more than 20 countries will fill over 200 slots competing in the event. It will feature the following divisions with the maximum number of competitors per country in parenthesis:

SUP Surfing Men (2) and Women (1)

SUP Racing Men (2) and Women (1)
-Technical SUP Racing Men and Women
-Distance SUP Racing Men and Women

Paddleboard Racing Men (2) and Women (1)
- Distance Paddleboard Racing Men and Women
-Technical Racing Men and Women

Paddle Team Relay (4 athletes per team)
-Sup Racing Men (1) and Women (1)

7. The Schedule
The ISA World SUP and Paddleboard Championship Opening Ceremony will officially take place on February 24, 2013 at Lima’s Parque Kennedy with the Parade of the Nations and the Sands of the World Ceremony. During the Sands of the World Ceremony, the participating countries will carry sand from their local beach and pour it into a glass container on stage symbolizing the peaceful gathering of nations through the love of surfing.

8. The Expectation
Traditional SUP and Paddleboarding powerhouses like Australia and Brazil have confirmed their participation in the event. Ten-time Molokai-to-Oahu Paddleboarding Champion and world-renowned waterman, Jamie Mitchell (AUS) will be a strong contender in the SUP Distance race.

In addition, new countries will have a presence in the Championship including India, Denmark, and Sweden.

9. The Venue
The SUP Surfing World Champions will be determined at the perfect rights at La Pampilla with its long, rock-bottom waves. The Men’s and Women’s winners will each hoist the Hector Velarde Trophy, named in honor of Peru’s first surfing champion.

The Distance Race, which is the same for both SUP and Prone events, will run from La Pampilla to Playa Barrancos and back and a length of approximately 18-20Km.

The Technical Races will run through a course that is approximately 5-6km set by buoys in the ocean and will start and finish in the surf at La Pampilla.

The Team Relay Race is approximately a 500m-course set by 2 buoys in the water and will start and finish in the surf at La Pampilla.

10. The Facts
Club Waikiki was founded in 1942 by the father of Peruvian surfing, Carlos Dogny. It’s one of the oldest surfing clubs in the world.

Eduardo Arena, founder of the International Surfing Federation (ISF), was raised in Lima and began his surfing life in front of Club Waikiki. The ISF became the International Surfing Association (ISA) in 1976.

The boards used for SUP racing competitions must have a maximum length no longer than 12’6” (over 3.5 meters) and for Paddleboard a limit of 12’. There is no size limit for the SUP surfing equipment.
