I saw that Afghanistan has a surfer there, I really hope he finds a way to qualify for the Olympics. What a story that would be!

There aren't any universality or tripartite commision places, so he really needs to be quite good in order to get the olympic spot.

I am unashamed, at getting nothing done.

This competition isn't really important, right? Congrats to Santiago anyway.

Besides the fact (I believe) It gives quotas for the Pan Am Games

Next year it will be a qualifier for Olympics afaik. It is considered world championships though. And Igarashi is a solid surfer from World Surf League. I am not sure, but as I remember ISA will allow at olympics only surfers who started at World Surfing Games.

actually this is the most important competition outside the Pro Tour (WSL), which is reserved to a small number of surfers coming almost only from the 4/5 powerhouses of the sport (26 are the "regulars")...;)

 

p.s. Igarashi is a WSL Tour member...so, Muniz's success can be described as "very prestigious"...

 

p.p.s. next year, this same competition will be the key event to earn an Olympic spot (apart from those reserved to the WSL tour specialists)...:evil:
