Fernando Aguerre has been re-elected as president of the International Surfing Association (ISA), at the ISA 50th Anniversary World Surfing Games in Punta Rocas, Peru.

The iconic Argentinean enters his eighth term as president of the world governing body for the sport of surfing, with two new vice-presidents: Barbara Kendall, New Zealand Olympic Windsurfing gold medalist and IOC Member, and two-time ISA Stand-Up Paddle world champion, Casper Steinfath.

"With the new wave technology that is about to transform Surfing we are presented with a wonderful opportunity to take the sport to new territories," underlines Fernando Aguerre.

"People who have never even been to the ocean will have the opportunity to surf on consistent, high-performance waves. This development really is a game changer for surfing and combined with the sport's global, youthful appeal, it can drive us towards the goal of Olympic inclusion."

Fernando Aguerre is the founder of the Reef action sports brand. He competed at the 1993 ISA World Surfing Championship. In 1994, he became president of the International Surfing Association.
