Honolua Bloomfield wins Gold at the ISA World Longboard Championship


Individual Gold Medalists Are Hawaii's Honolua Blomfield In The

Junior's Under-18, South Africa's Simone Robb In The Open Women's And France's Antoine Delpero In The Open Men's. Team France Wins The ISA Aloha Cup 

Following an amazing week of great waves and exciting surfing performances, the 2013 ISA World Longboard Championship, in historic Huanchaco, Peru, is officially over.

The first final in the water was the Junior’s Under-18, where Hawaii’s Honolua Blomfield won the Gold Medal earning 15.00. As one of only two girls entered in the Junior competition, Blomfield had a difficult task, but managed to dominate most of her heats throughout the event, including the final.

“I just feel on top of the world! I can’t believe that I was able to make it this far,” said the elated Hawaiian. “On my first wave, a set wave, I just played safe and did a couple of turns and some nose riding and ended up getting a seven. I was just amped throughout the whole heat. Then another really long wave came through, a little nugget that peeled all the way to the inside and I ended up getting another seven on that one.” These two rides added up to a winning performance.

France will go down in the history books as the Gold Medal Team in the first stand-alone ISA World Longboard Championship.

In the individual divisions, France's Antoine Delpero won the Open Men's, South Africa's Simone Robb won the Open Women's, and Hawaii's Honolua Blomfield won the Junior's Under-18. Team France won the ISA Aloha Cup.

"It's been an incredible World Championship with excellent waves every day of the event," remarked ISA President Fernando Aguerre. "This has been a historic World Championship as it is the first time an ISA World Longboard Championship takes place separate from the ISA World Surfing Games, and furthermore, the inauguration of the Women and Junior Longboard Divisions for the first time in ISA history."

President Aguerre continued, "A very special thanks to all of the athletes, the whole town of Huanchaco, the public and private sector of Peru, and especially, the Peruvian Institute of Sport, the Association of Olympic Athletes of Peru, the Peruvian National Olympic Committee, the municipality of Huanchaco, and our dear event organizer of this first World Championship, Karin Sierralta."
