Izzi Gomez at only 14 years old already holds the Standup World Tour World title and was voted the 2014 Female Paddler of the Year at the SUP awards and is a girl taking the Paddleboard world by storm. To showcase her extraordinary talent Izzi has released a video of some of her sessions in Hawaii over the past winter and it is mightily impressive to say the least.
Whether she is dropping in on waves nearly 3 times overhead or snapping turns one after the other, Izzi surfs with a supreme confidence and a slick style. It is remarkable to see a young girl have the physical strength to manoeuvre a SUP in the manner that she does. It is easy to see why 2014 was such a successful year for the young Izzi.
The video can be found below this article, and with the a-ha track ‘Take On Me’ accompanying the clip we wonder if it is a subliminal challenge that Izzi is offering to her competitors! What do you think of this teenagers talent and would you feel comfortable on your SUP in those size waves?
