    Sage Erickson is on a roll. After winning a 6-Star event in Oceanside, Calif. a month ago, the stunning 22-year-old from Ventura followed up that result with another win thousands of miles away on the coast of Spain over the weekend. In clean 3- to 4-foot waves at Playa de Pantin, Sage put her power turns to work, and as a result won the 6-Star Cabreiroa Pantin Classic Pro over Alizee Arnaud of France in dominating fashion, posting a score of 16.10 to Arnaud’s 9.83. When Sage made it back to the beach after the final, she put on her favorite teal Frogskins, and was chaired up the beach by her brother, Noah, and a friend – her arms raised in victory.
