Interesting notes on Peru's involvement in surfing and the ISA:

The ISA (International Surfing Association) originally began as the ISF (International Surfing Federation) in 1964 at the time of the first World Surfing Championship in Australia.

The ISA is recognized by the International Olympic Committee as the world governing authority for surfing and waveriding events: these include: Bodyboard, kneeboard, longboard, tandem, skimboard and bodysurf.

Peru has a long history of surfing and involvement in the ISA.
  • Earliest known surfing craft - Here in Huanchaco, the locals have been riding waves for centuries with their unique reed fishing craft, the "caballitos de totora."

  • The first wold champion of surfing was a Peruvian, Felipe Pomar.

  • The first president of the ISF (pre-ISA) was a Peruvian, Eduardo Arena.

The Huanchaco Peru ISA Longboard Championship 2013 is the first time ever that longboards have had a championship of their own; and in a most appropriate spot, Huanchaco, Peru.
