Levi Siver delivered a spectacular wave sailing show to clinch the Pacasmayo Classic 2014, in Peru.
The Pro finals got underway in impeccable swell conditions, with mast-high waves rolling through the Peruvian surfing arena. The final had Kevin Pritchard and Levi Siver fighting for points and prize money, in a nerve-racking 30-minute clash.
Siver opened Pacasmayo Classic 2014 showdown with a fantastic ride scored at 8.60, but Pritchard wasn't ready to give up. He kept improving his overall score, until Levi decided to complete one of the best waves of the contest - an 8.60-point ride in his last attempt.
"I could write both sides of my experience in Peru. Why a country with so much joy, love and resources can still struggle with poverty, but I'd rather focus on how epic it was," underlines Levi Siver.
"I didn't get much further than this point break but for me this was it. We rode waves that lasted minutes long and laughed like kids. At 33 years old, I was once again surprised by the open road."
The 2014 American Windsurfing Tour is now heading to Punta San Carlos, in Baja California, Mexico, for the Quatro Desert Showdown. Levi Siver commands the overall rankings.
