Tandem surfing history is made at Trestles, San Diego, California
ISA Tandem Surfing World Championship
Trestles, San Diego, California
January 7 - 9, 2011
The New Year has already heralded in several notable firsts in the history of tandem surfing. It was the first time the ISA Tandem Surfing World Championship took place on the mainland USA. It was also the first time, since the inception of the International Tandem Surfing Association (ITSA), that the same team has won the World Championship title in two consecutive years, a fact that Clement Cetran and Dhelia Birou, 2010 and 2011 World Champions, can now proudly boast. And, it was the first time that the youngest competitor (Hana McEvilly, 10) and the oldest competitor (Kathy Terada, 58) in the entire contest battled against each other in the Finals.

Celebrating the month of his death (January 22, 1968) we decided to honor the Duke in this edition of the World Surfing News. Not only was he the father of modern surfing, but also the father of the movement to make surfing an Olympic sport, a path that the International Surfing Association has continued.
Hawaiian Duke Kahanamoku (1890-1968) was a champion swimmer, actor, lawman and businessman, who spread the sport of surfing around the globe.
Kahanamoku was the Olympic Gold Medalist in the 100m Freestyle in 1912 in Stockholm. In the 1920 Olympic Games in Antwerp, he won Gold Medals in the 100m Freestyle and 4x200m Freestyle Relay. Duke’s Dream was for his beloved sport of surfing, the "Sport of Kings," to be an Olympic Sport.
To quote Duke from his 1965 published biography, "Even as early as...(1918), I was already thinking of surfing in terms of how it could someday become one of the events in the Olympic Games. Why not? Skiing and tobogganing have taken their rightful place as official Olympic events. I still believe surfing will one day be recognized, voted in and accepted."
