by Scottish Surfing Federation in Scotland

The Scottish Surfing Federation hope to send a Scotland team to the ISA World Surfing Games in Costa Rica from the 6th  - 14th of August 2016.

The team will be made up of 6 surfers - two ladies and four men and the team was selected at the Scottish National Surfing Championships in Thurso.

The surfers who will make the trip to Costa Rica to fly the flag for Scotland:

 Mark Cameron (Fraserburgh)Mark Cameron (Fraserburgh)

Mark Boyd (Thurso)

Scott Main(Thurso)

Chris Noble (Thurso)

Shoana Blackadder (Thurso)Phoebe Strachan (Thurso)

The Scottish Surfing Federation are the governing body for the sport of surfing in Scotland and have been in existence for over 40 years.  The Scottish National Surfing Championships is hosted by the SSF and acts as selection for the international Scottish teams.

ISA competitions attract the worlds best surfers and past winners have included ASP World Champions Sofia Mulanovich (Peru), Sunny Garcia (Hawaii), Tom Curren (USA), Jordy Smith (ZAF), Stephanie Gilmore (AUS) and current ASP World Champion Gabriel Medina (BRA). The reigning ISA World Games mens champion is Noe Mar McGonagle of Costa Rica.

At the moment our athletes will have to travel to Costa Rica self funded and it is extremely expensive to make the trip and cover all costs to fill Scotland's place on the world stage.  Costs include air fares, surfboard charges, transportation, accomodation, membership fees and entry fees.  The trip for the entire team may cost in excess of £16,000 but our surfers are so passionate about representing their country they will do their best to attend, but we need to raise as much money as possible to help subsidise the trip.  

This year is set to be the strongest Scotland team to compete at the World Games yet, with all the top seeds in attendance.  Scotland placed 16th at the 2014 ISA World Surfing Games- there are 99 member nations of the International Surfing Association.

Staunch Industries are once again supporting the Scottish Team on their World Games campaign by releasing a series of limited edition garments only available here to help fund the team's trip.  You can pledge for these garments now at a discounted price pre release and make a selection on your design once the line is released - the price of the items will go up once the line is unveiled but we guarantee you will be delighted with Staunch's designs everytime.

So please get behind Team Scotland and pledge to our Crowdfunder for one of the fantastic rewards that are available!
