On December 8-11 2016, the 2nd annual Stance ISA World Adaptive Surfing Championship is set to bring the world’s most talented adaptive surfers back to La Jolla Shores to compete for gold, represent their nations, and inspire the world.
This year should bring an unprecedented amount of talent to the shores of San Diego, with many countries like France, Australia, Chile, Brazil, USA, Hawaii and South Africa being among those that have held National Championships to field teams to compete in California.
The ISA is also changing up its format by incorporating team medals and adding two new divisions, a visually impaired division and a new standing division that will separate the standing and kneeling surfers into two divisions based on the level of their impairment.
“The 2016 Stance ISA World Adaptive Surfing Championship is creating waves around the world and inspiring the growth and development of new Adaptive Surfing programs and championships. It is amazing to watch the increase in global access and participation of the sport introducing athletes with physical challenges to Surfing and its healing powers.” ISA President Fernando Aguerre said.
Don’t miss out on what’s sure to be a life-changing event for everyone involved.
