After the Cloudbreak wave in Fiji a few weeks ago, it was the Pascamayo wave in Peru that welcomed the riders of the IWT Wave Tour with a competition won this time by Jessica Crisp and Morgan Noireaux.
The 4th stage of the IWT Wave Tour season, it is in Pacasmayo in Peru, on one of the most famous lefts in the world, that the competitors of this wave circuit had an appointment from September 10th to 18th, always in small committee. Among the absentees, Camille Juban, winner in Cloudbreak, was absent and some Europeans like the French Coraline Foveau and Julien Flechet as well as the Spanish Marias Andres were present...
After a calm start and rather shy conditions, the spot of Pacasmayo finally shows its true face with 4 days of intensive racing. In the Pro category, if Morgan Noireaux and Antoine Martin are there, 2 outsiders are also present in the last four with the Japanese Hayata Ishii and the local Iñaki Maturana. After a half-hearted final, Morgan Noireaux finally made his surfing science speak and won in front of Ishii and Martin. Accustomed to pure waveriding conditions, Australian Jessica Crisp got the better of her compatriot Jane Seman followed by Maria Andres, Coraline Foveau and local Denise Blondet.
All eyes are now on the Aloha Classic on the island of Maui in Hawaii from October 24 to 28, an event that has been shortened to 5 days, instead of the usual 12-day window, and titles that are expected to be hotly contested in all categories...
