Liberia Becomes the Ninth ISA Member Nation From the African Continent
Liberia is working toward a future removed from its troubled past - and doing so, partly, through surfing.
Eight years removed from its last civil war, the country has a growing tourism industry, part of which circulates around its 350 miles of pristine, white-sand coastline in Western Africa. It was for that reason and the hope of continuing to increase surfing's presence in the country that it applied and was accepted to become the ISA's 71st Member Nation.
With the fifth edition of the ISA World Masters Surfing Championship set to begin in Nicaragua on July 14, there is a lot to begin to think about. The event will feature many of the best over-35-year-old surfers from outposts around the world who will be seeking individual and team glory.
The World-Class Beachbreak Offers Barrels and Long Lefts and Rights
After weeks of analyzing swell charts and considering weather patterns, the decision was made for the Nicaragua ISA World Masters Surfing Championship to be run in the world-class beachbreak waves at Colorado Beach at Hacienda Iguana.
Last Thursday, May 11 the DAKINE ISA World Junior Surfing Championship's Gold Medal Team of Hawaii was welcomed by the state's Governor, Neil Abercrombie.
The squad of 12 surfers and three coaches was crowned champion of the world's biggest and most important under-18 surfing competition on April 22 in Panama's Playa Venao.
Team Hawaii Wins its First Team Gold Since 2005
The medals have been awarded, t-shirts and hats exchanged between athletes and coaches from different countries, and the board bags have been packed for the long commutes home. The line-up at Playa Venao is back to its quiet, picturesque self. Eight days have come and gone and the 2012 DAKINE ISA World Junior Surfing Championship Presented by Billabong is just a memory.
Event Will Be the Country's First Time Hosting a Surfing World Championship
After months of searching and considering bids, the ISA has announced that the fifth edition of the ISA World Masters Surfing Championship will take place in the land of constant offshore winds: Nicaragua. The event will run from July 14-22, which is during the country's Veranillo, or "little summer," a time known for favorable winds and great waves.
Some big ISA decisions were made in a small town in Panama on Monday evening. With 31 ISA National Federations (NF) in town for the DAKINE ISA World Junior Surfing Championship Presented by Billabong, the NF presidents, or their designated proxies, gathered for the Biennial General Meeting in Pedasi to determine who would fill two Vice President positions on the ISA Executive Committee.

Hawaiian Kalani David won the Gold Medal in the Under 16 division of the DAKINE ISA World Junior Surfing Championship held last April in Panama.
Even at 14, his victory was no surprise for all those who knew him. Kalani has distinguished himself as a surfer and a skater ever since he learned to walk when he was 18 months old.
