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.”

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.

To conclude the 2013 ISA World SUP and Paddleboard Championship the Final Team Relay took place. After a dominant performance all event, the Aussies won the Gold Medal over Team South Africa (Silver Medal), Team France (Bronze Medal) and Team Brazil (Copper Medal).
