This year’s event is more stacked than ever, coming off the most competitive year yet on the Stand Up World Tour last year, where we saw Kai Lenny (Naish) and Caio Vaz (Art in Surf) battle it out until the end for the Title, and an incredibly tight battle for 3rd thru 6th making for an exciting finish to the year.
Caio Vaz (Art in Surf) will be looking for vengeance in 2015, and a repeat performance of his stunning 2014 victory here at Sunset that set the tone for his year and dominance thru the first half of the season last year. However, with 3 victories here at Sunset and 4 World Titles, Kai Lenny (Naish) will be looking to stand strong at home and start the year as he intends to continue.
Sean Poynter (Starboard) is back and finished the year on a roll in 2014, with a win at the Finals in France and a consecutive win at the Location X ehibition event in Morocco. However, right behind him, Poenaiki Raioha (F-One), Zane Schweitzer (Starboard) and Mo Freitas (Focus SUP), North Shore local will be looking to step up this year and close the gap on Kai and Caio.
The talent pool runs deep on the Stand Up World Tour, so while these are a few of the leading lights, expect some major performances across the board, as Sunset specialists, meet some of the younger progressive athletes for a showcase of performance Stand Up Paddlesurfing at its very best.
