10th August 2015 – The Copa El Salvador Impresionante presented by Body Glove Women’s Qualification Series (QS) 6000 has wrapped up with an exciting final day culminating with the win for the USA’s Sage Erickson.
It was Stephanie Gilmore’s injury wild card who made a clean sweep through her side of the draw to meet Sage in the final. Sage put the big numbers up early with a 6.67 which gave her the edge over Keely as the waves died off and the opportunity to pick up another big score faded. Both girls’ back up rides kept the final scores low in the 2 foot conditions.
“This was a surreal event for me and I’m so stoked to win,” Sage said. “The competition has never been higher and I’m just thankful to be up here. There were some highs and lows but stoked to make it through every condition. It just makes that 2016 tour even closer and so thankful for all the support.”
This win pushes Sage up into a tied first place with Tatiana Weston-Webb on the WQS rankings. A great result for her as the 2015 season makes it’s way to the end of the year.
