Icah Wilmot: always there when you talk about surfing in Jamaica

Jamaica continues to garner top positions in regional surfing as local and regional surf star Icah Wilmot was victorious at the Pan American Surfing Association Event in Cuba over the weekend where he finished in the top spot.

The event was sanctioned by the Pan American Surfing Association and was attended by surfers from Barbados, Cuba, Jamaica and the Dominican Republic.

The surfers competed in Open Surf and Body Board. Icah represented Jamaica in the Open Surf division where he dominated the day’s proceedings with quick radical maneuvers.

The waves were small but Icah who was a crowd favorite, displayed superior wave selection and surf technique to better his opponents and won the first place medal much to the joy of the spectators in attendance.

Icah is currently in Trinidad where he is in training for his 2010 season and will return to Jamaica this month.

The push through, or punch through technique allows surfers to get past a small broken wave and reach the lineup without having to duck dive or turtle roll.
