The 2023 Surf City El Salvador ISA World Surfing Games are testimony to the strong and ongoing partnership between the ISA and the Salvadoran government.
President Nayib Bukele and his leadership team are deeply committed to establishing their country as a leading surfing destination.
ISA President Fernando Aguerre said:
“El Salvador continues to solidify itself as an essential part of the pathway to Olympic Surfing.
“We are grateful to President Bukele and Minister Valdez for their understanding of the ISA’s mission, but also for their strong commitment to surfing.
We are happy to continue to expand and strengthen this partnership, and to show the world that El Salvador is a surfing destination worthy of the world’s best events and surfers.
Our surfers and teams from around the world have come to love and appreciate El Salvador’s beauty, warm hospitality and excellent waves. We look forward to returning next year as part of our paddle for a better world through surfing.”
President of El Salvador Nayib Bukele said:
“Surf is freedom. The world needs freedom, probably more than at any other point in our lifetime. So it will be a great honor to be part of its promotion and celebration once again.
We thank the ISA and its president, Fernando Aguerre, for including us.
El Salvador will always be home for anyone who wishes to spread the culture and values of surfing”
