A total of 69 athletes from 18 countries participated in an event that has already undergone huge growth since.

“The ISA is proud and excited to make Surfing more accessible to those with physical challenges," added ISA President Fernando Aguerre.

"These world-class athletes deserve a world-class platform to compete, share best practices, and crown world champions.

“I would like to give a huge thanks to Stance, who has shown their passion and commitment to being a socially responsible brand that makes a positive impact on the world.
