From the 7th of September until the 15th, the International Surfing Association (ISA) will return to Japan to hold the 2019 World Surfing Games, our local rippers will compete and represent the Philippine Team!

This year’s ISA World Surfing Games is also an Olympic Surfing qualifier for the Tokyo 2020 Olympics. The slots will be on a continental basis meaning that Asian, African, European and Oceanian countries will have to fight to have a chance to wave their national flag at the Olympics next year.

A maximum of two athletes per country can qualify, one man and one woman. For the Americas’ qualifications, the slots were determined during the 2019 Pan American Games last July.

The Filipino athletes who will have the opportunity to win a ticket to Tokyo are in the Men’s Shortboard: John Mark Tokong, Piso Alcala, Eduardo Alciso and Jr Esquivel according to the Top 4 from the 2018 Philippine Surfing Championship Tour (PSCT) and in the Women’s Shortboard: Daisy Valdez, Ana Mae Alipayo and Angel'lea Aguilar.

Two out of the eight surfers will be a reserve, in case one of the team members cannot compete due to an injury or illness.

“The 2019 edition of the WSG is set to be a historic landmark in the history of Surfing- serving as the first event to directly qualify surfers for the Tokyo 2020 Olympics” expressed the ISA President, Fernando Aguerre, in a report.

The competition will take place at the town of Miyazaki and the surfers will compete at Kisakihama beach break, considered the best surf spot in the land of the rising sun.

It is an incredible opportunity for the Filipino surfers to compete with other surfers from all over the world and with world champions. Kelly Slater (USA), Gabriel Medina (Brazil), Italo Ferreira (Brazil), Tatiana Weston-Webb (Brazil), John John Florence (USA), Carissa More (USA), Sally Fitzgibbons (Australia), Jeremy Flores (France) and many more will be there to surf and represent their National Team.
