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