ISA President Fernando Aguerre said:
“After a challenging absence of authentic, elite events for the SUP community due to global health crisis, we are very excited to relaunch this amazing event in a true surfing destination like Puerto Rico. With this announcement, we want to send a message to the global SUP community of the ISA’s continuous commitment to support and develop this sport world-wide.
We’re thrilled to be back in Puerto Rico, an island rich in surfing and SUP history. This is the start of an exciting partnership with our friends from Puerto Rico and we can’t wait to celebrate the beauty and culture of this island.”
IOC Member & Chairman of the Local Host Committee, Richard Carrion said:
“We are really looking forward to making history with this event. We are grateful to the ISA President and his team for their confidence and trust in Puerto Rico and for the opportunity to bring world-class SUP back to our island. We are eager to welcome the world’s best SUP athletes in Puerto Rico. We will make the SUP family proud .”
More information on the event will be announced by the ISA and the Puerto Rico LOC in the beginning of 2022.
