Stuart Robinson of Comox advanced to the finals of the 2013 World Stand Up Paddle-Surf Championships with 23 of the finest SUP competitors in the world on Saturday in Peru. He finished in 15th place.

Team Canada finished 10th overall in a field of 23 national teams. “For a first time at this level the team did great,” Robinson said. “It will ignite the fire and entice others in Canada to do the same.”
