Iballa Moreno becomes 2nd in the European SUP Surf Contest #EUROSUPA 2014.
The canarian rider Iballa Moreno could not defend her tittle from last year in Somo-Cantabria, north of Spain. Caroline Angibaud takes the win with Maïli Tahar in third.
The second edition of the European SUP Surfing 2014 took place again in Somo, Cantabria north of Spain with offshore winds, warm weather with 2-3 meters waves. Perfect scenario for a great event.
Iballa Moreno tried to defend her title with good surfing all through out the contest until the final. She scored 4,5 and 6,0 as her best waves scores in the final but it was this time Caroline Angibaud who took the win by having a 4,5 and a 7 points rides. A heat before the final Iballa had a shoulder injury but it didn’t stop her from having a great performance in the final.
Iballa: “Im happy to become this year second of Europe. Its another great result for my career and also my last one of the season. Its a good way to finish but SUP season of competitions. We had great waves, great weather and a good time in Somo-Cantabria. I will like to thank the organizer for putting together such a great event and make no differences between men and women prize money. Last year he did it as well and its great to see this happening in this sports. We have to motivate and give extra incentive to the girls in the sport of surfing so we can have more girls taking part in the near future! thanks Starboard for supporting me during this season!!!”
