Huntington Beach has become a memorable destination for the young Champion Izzi Gomez (Starboard), having secured her first World Title here last year in advance of the final event, and once again this year, proving the be the place she secures her second.
She wasn’t in a heat when she won, although she did prove victorious over Sophia Bartlow in the semi finals to earn her place in the Finals here at the US Open. She was in fact watching the second semi finals on the beach as Candice Appleby (Infinity) was knocked out by the on form Mariko Strickland (Naish) from Kauai, an act that would secure Izzi’s position as this year’s World Champion prior to the event’s completion.
So a big congratulations go out to this phenomenal young athlete as she continues to wow the world with her skill and personality, notching up another World Title at such a young age.
However, knowing Izzi, she will not be happy until the job is done, so she will be wanting to finish on a high here at the US Open of Stand Up Paddling. Make sure to watch her in action tomorrow morning for the dramatic final heat against Mariko Strickland as it all comes down to the wire here at the US Open and LIVE at www.watermanleague.com
