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.”
