Poynter, Gomez Win La Torche Pro France

The final stop of the 2014 Standup World Tour, La Torche Pro France, wrapped up today with a big win for American Sean Poynter, ahead of second place Leco Salazar of Brazil.

In the race for the world title, Maui’s Kai Lenny stepped up his game to secure the highest scoring wave of the day in the quarter finals over world title contender Caio Vaz. Lenny was named 2014 World Champion shortly after.

“I feel amazing right now to be the new World Champion,” Lenny told Waterman League.
