PETERSON CRISANTO WINS ASSOCIATION OF SURFING PROFESSIONALS’ SIX-STAR REEF PRO EL SALVADOR
(Carlsbad, CA)– July 15th, 2013 – Yesterday, 22-year-old Brazilian Peterson Crisanto won the Reef Pro El Salvador in incredible three to five-foot point surf over World Tour surfer, Josh Kerr in La Libertad, El Salvador.
Crisanto’s road to the final was not easy, as he had to surpass some of the most in-form surfers of the contest. He was able to hold off Wiggoly Dantas, Mitch Crews, and World Tour surfer Freddy Patacchia through the late rounds. In the final, he earned a 16.43-point total for a forehand attack that looked an awful lot like that of his competition, Josh Kerr, putting up vertical turns, stylish air-reverses and an amazing layback.
Crisanto praised the waves and friendly locals who hosted this epic contest. He came into the event ranked No. 85 on the WQS and will climb significantly going into the ASP Prime US Open in Huntington Beach later this month.
While the final was electrifying, on Wednesday, a powerful six to eight-foot swell bowling down the famed point, one of the best days of surf the ASP has seen this year.
