Izzy Gomez notches up another World Tour win at the Alagoas Pro Grand Slam

Izzy-gomez

As we saw at the Turtle Bay Women’s Pro back in February, the performance level on the Women’s World Tour has sky rocketed over the past year and new faces are rising to the top to be counted.

Izzy Gomez (Starboard) from Florida has demonstrated that she is not only a force to be reckoned with, but a leading Contender on the Stand Up World Tour by taking the win here at the Alagoas Pro Grand Slam. This is now her 3rd victory on the Stand Up World Tour as she notches up more victories than any other athlete on the women’s Tour, even current World Champion Nicole Pacelli.

Her journey to the Finals was challenging, having to go through the repechage round to make it back into the Main event. However from there, she just gained momentum and then peaked during the Final heat of the day, with some of the best surfing and highest scores of the event going down during the Final agains Nicole.

This in itself is impressive and the fact that she is still only 14 years old is astonishing. There is no doubt that this young Floridian has an incredible future ahead of her.

Nicole Pacelli strengthens her 2014 Title Campaign with a 2nd place finish

Current World Champion and Ratings leader Nicole Pacelli put on another strong performance here at the Alagoas Pro Grand Slam, powering through the rounds to reach another well deserved Final. Nicole and Izzy Gomez (Starboard) went blow for blow during the Final, both pushing each other to a whole new level, but it was to be Izzy’s day, leaving Nicole having to settle for 2nd place.

However, Nicole is still on top of the world after 2 events, maintaining her ratings lead going into the next event in Abu Dhabi next week.

Iballa Moreno puts on a stellar performance here in Brazil

Iballa Moreno (Starboard) from the Canary Islands put together some strong performances through the Alagoas Pro Grand Slam and showed flashes of brilliance that clearly demonstrate she is a real force to be reckoned with on the Stand Up World Tour.

With a more powerful and radical approach to her surfing, Iballa made it through to the semi finals, but just fell short against current World Champion Nicole Pacelli, forcing her to settle for 3rd place in the event.

However this is her best result yet on Tour and is a sign of things to come for Iballa, as she now sits in 6th place overall.

Aline Adisaka strengthens her position on Tour with another strong result

Aline Adisaka (New Advance) put on another stellar performance here at the Alagoas Pro Grand Slam, showcasing that she is a real contender on the Stand Up World Tour and has her sites set on the Title in 2014.

With the Brazilian Title under her belt, she is now heading off to Abu Dhabi with increased confidence after her result here in Brazil and currently sitting in 4th place overall in the Rankings.

Watch out for this Brazilian talent that is making waves here on the Stand up World Tour as we head to Abu Dhabi next week.

Impressive performances from all quarterfinalists showcase depth of talent

The level of surfing amongst the women this year at the Alagoas Pro Grand Slam was intense, as the gauntlet was thrown and the bar set high.

Newcomer Brissa Malaga from Peru put on a great showing here at Praia do Frances, as did 3rd place finisher at Sunset, Sophia Bartlow from California.

Meanwhile Candice Appleby demonstrated that she has her targets set on the World Title, looking strong through the rounds, but just falling short against the eventual winner, Izzy Gomez (Starboard). Maina Thompson was our other Brazilian Maina Thompson stepped up to be counted, reaching the Quarterfinals of the World Tour event and finishing in 3rd in the Nationals.
