Antoine Delpero takes ISA Mens SUP Worlds Gold Medal for France

Surfersvillage Global Surf News, 26 February, 2012 : - - The Men’s SUP Surfing Final was decided before most of the competitors could realize what had happened. By the 10-minute mark, France’s Antoine Delpero had the field in the combination situation, with a pair of excellent scores for a total of 17.56. The Gold Medal was his second in ISA competition. He also won the Gold Medal in the Men’s Longboard at the ISA World Surfing Games in Costa Rica in 2009.

“I don’t realize right now [how it feels to get the win], with the crowd and all, but I feel really good. I think tomorrow I’m going to realize, but we’re going to have a good night tonight,” said Delpero, also appreciative of adding to his medal tally. “It feels so good to have two gold medals with the ISA, it’s always a big pleasure to come with a crew and a team. The support is different than when you go in a competition by yourself, you have really big support, so thanks to the French crew.”

Both Merrill and Delpero will have their names engraved on the perpetual Hector Velarde Trophy, which will be presented annually to the winners of the Men’s and Women’s SUP Surfing divisions. Velarde, who was born and raised in Lima, won the Peruvian national championship in 1963. He donated the trophy to the event.

With its strong showing on the final day of the event, Australia locked-up and ran away in the team standings, winning the Club Waikiki Trophy, which will be awarded annually to the overall team champion of the ISA World SUP and Paddleboard Championship, in honor of Peru’s most famous surf club, which was founded by Carlos Dogny in 1942.
