Surfing has the ability to transform. It transforms us as individuals, turning us into active participants in the ocean, and active defenders of its health and survival. Surfing also has the ability to transform a community, a region and even a country - even if it's in a small way. The government of Nicaragua, and its Tourism Department, are bringing the ISA World Masters Surfing Championship to its shores in July, as part of their plan so that transformation will take place in their country.
The event, which begins on July 14, will bring the best over-35-year-old surfers in the world to compete in the waves at Colorado beach at Hacienda Iguana. Several former ISA and ASP World Champions and numerous over 35 top professional surfers will represent their respective country in hopes of achieving the glory of winning an individual medal and, more importantly, a team medal. In turn, the elite-level athletes will bring the spotlight of the national and international media.
