The Starboard Team riders put on an outstanding display in both surf SUP and Racing in Abu Dhabi with Izzi Gomez stealing the show with her Grand Slam title. Izzi won the women’s surf title. This is the first Grand Slam title for Izzi as she only started competing in the race division in Abu Dhabi.
Zane Schweitzer was another surprise as he ended up in 2nd in the sprint races and 3rd overall for racing. This propelled Zane into a 3rd place standing for the Grand Slam.
Connor Baxter ended up 2nd in the Race division just behind Kai Lenny and we saw Iballa Moreno reach 2nd in the women’s surf Sup division and Sean Poynter in 2nd for the men’s SUP surf division.
All-in-all a fantastic showing for our Starboard team. Congrats to all who participated!
Connor is off to compete next in the Carolina Cup, Zane is attending Stand Up for the Cure, then he will pack up and head to the Carribean Island of St Croix for the Coconut Cup. The Surf Tour takes a break and will resume in CA.
