Claro ISA 50th Anniversary World Surfing Games?Punta Rocas, Peru?October 24 – 1 November 2014 ??
 
The members of the South African Surfing Team have made their way to Peru for the historic Claro ISA 50th Anniversary World Surfing Games where they will attempt to defend the team title and reclaim the Gold Medals and Trophies they won at last year’s edition of the event in Panama.
 
More than 150 surfers from 22 nations will be competing for team and individual honours in Peru. The event takes place at the world renowned Punta Rocas surf break, approximately 60 Kms south of Lima, where competitors can expect powerful waves that break both left and right.
 
This is the same venue used for the first ISA World Surfing Championships back in 1965 where South Africa was represented by George Thomopolous, Max Wetteland and the late Anthony van der Heuwel, all from Durban.
 
In recent times each National Team consists of up to 4 Open Men and 2 Open Women surfers plus Team Officials. As a mark of respect for their historic team victory last year, South Africa’s third since 1978, the entire team was invited to represent the country again in Peru this year.
 
All but team captain and 2013 ISA Men’s World Champion, Shaun Joubert (Mossel Bay), are in Peru. Former multiple SA Champion Casey Grant (Scottburgh) has replaced Joubert, who is furthering his education, and the balance of the team features Mikey February and David Brand (both Kommetjie),David Van Zyl (Glenashley), Tanika Hoffman (Hout Bay) and Faye Zoetmulder (Cape St Francis). Financial support from Sport and Recreation South Africa has made it possible for the team to travel to the 50th ISA World Surfing Games in Peru.
 
The team will again be coached by Etienne Venter (Jeffreys Bay) and the manager for 2015 is Johnny Bakker (Port Elizabeth).
 
The opening ceremonies for the event get underway today (Friday) and comprise the Parade of Nations and Sands of the World Ceremony where the delegations from the 22 nations will parade around Lima’s iconic “Plaza de Armas” in the centre of the city, in front of thousands of local spectators.
 
During the Opening Ceremony, two surfers from each team come to the stage displaying their national flag and pour sand from their local beach into a glass container to symbolise the peaceful gathering of nations through the love of surfing.
 
The Parade of Nations and the Opening Ceremony will begin at 10:00am local time (5pm today in South Africa) and can be viewed live on http://isawsg.com/live/.
 
Surfing competition gets underway at Punta Rocas on Saturday and runs until Saturday 1 November when the men’s and women’s champions as well as the winning national team will be crowned.
 
Surfline, the official forecaster of the event, has predicted pumping waves for the opening days of the competition followed by great surf for the whole contest period.
 
Surfing South Africa (SSA) is a member of the SA Sports Confederation and Olympic Committee (SASCOC) and recognised by Sport and Recreation SA as the national governing body for the sport. SSA is a member of the International Surfing Association (ISA), the world’s governing body for surfing.
