Asia: continent of endless waves

The sport of surfing is growing fast in Asia. Industry experts will be speaking about the development of national governing bodies, in Kuta, Bali, Indonesia.

In 2020, there will be 50 million surfers in the planet. The Asian region is fuelling the growth of surfing in the world and the inaugural 2013 Asian Surfing Development Symposium (ASDS) is held, at the right time.

The primary goal of the five-day program is to provide specific and much needed educational seminars and judging training to the budding surf communities of Asia, as they seek to begin and grow the sport of surfing in their local areas.

The seminars include discussions on "Event Management, Preparation and Logistics Seminar", "he Role of the Media for Events and Marketing", "The Roles of the ISA, ASP and the ASC", "National Governing Body Development and Structure" and "Event Development and Structure".

"Asia is a continent with a tremendous potential for growth for surfing and in the number of ISA Member Nations. I am pleased to send Summer Nelson to deliver an important presentation illustrating how the ISA will help and work with existing and prospective new members in Asia to effectively build their organizations", explains Fernando Aguerre, ISA President.

The 2013 Asian Surfing Development Symposium is organized by the International Surfing Association (ISA) and the Asian Surfing Championships (ASC).

It is one of the sport's most forgotten disciplines. The stand-up bodyboarding movement had its heyday between the late 1980s and early 1990s, but it continues to be an exquisite art.
