Following the Parade of Nations, which was led around the park by Aguerre, Peruvian surf legend Hector Velarde, event organizer and Executive Director of FENTA, the Peruvian Surfing Federation, Karin Sierralta, the president of Club Waikiki, Jose Antonio Osterling and Alan Atkins, vice president of the ISA and event technical director, the teams and spectators congregated outside the Miraflores Mayor’s Office for the remainder of the ceremony.

Each team sent a flag bearer and a representative onto the stage for the traditional Sands of the World Ceremony, where sands from home beaches are poured into a glass container, representing the peaceful gathering of nations through the love of surfing. One highlight in particular was Robert Etienne, who poured the “sand” for Team Switzerland – which was all rocks – and then took a moment to grace the crowd with his yodeling ability.
