ADAPTIVE SURFERS FROM AROUND THE WORLD PREPARE TO COMPETE
Wednesday, 24 June 2015

The first-ever International Surfing Association World Adaptive Surfing Championship is set to take place September 24-27 in La Jolla, CA and bring together the adaptive surfing community from around the world.

By teaming up with the Challenged Athletes Foundation (CAF), one of the recognized leaders in the physically challenged sports community, the ISA is excited to unify global efforts for the advancement of Adaptive Surfing. This World Championship will serve as the preeminent platform for physically challenged surfers to display their talents in competition.

Additionally, the CAF has generously offered 15 Travel Grants of $1000 each to assist athletes in their travel and lodging for the ISA World Adaptive Surfing Championship. Only athletes that are recognized by their National Federation are eligible to apply, and the deadline for final applications is June 30 due to the CAF direct.

"This historic ISA World Championship and groundbreaking partnership with the CAF will lay the foundation for a sustainable and successful future for Adaptive Surfing," said ISA President Fernando Aguerre. Our goals are to make the sport of Surfing more accessible to physically challenged surfers, offer a premier competitive opportunity for those surfers and to connect the international community of athletes with one another."
