ISA World Masters Surfing Championship Returns in 2024, To Be Hosted by Surf City El Salvador

The Seventh edition of the prestigious event to take place October 18-24 in Surf City El Salvador

The International Surfing Association (ISA) announces the return of the ISA World Masters Surfing Championship (WMSC) in 2024. The seventh edition of the event will be hosted by Surf City El Salvador October 18-24, 2024 at the iconic point-break of El Sunzal.

The age divisions will be 40-49, 50-59 and 60+ and all teams will have the opportunity to register one male and one female participant per division.

Multiple CT Champions are counted amongst the roster of Masters World Champions, including three-time WSL Champion Tom Curren (USA), seven-time WSL Champion Layne Beachley (AUS), and Sunny Garcia (HAW). Other notable previous champions include Rochelle Ballard (HAW), Rob Page (AUS), Heather Clark (RSA), and the WMSC’s winningest surfer, Juan Ashton (PUR).

Six WMSC events were previously held between 2007 and 2013, each of which took place in incredible waves like Colorado (Nicaragua), Rincon (Puerto Rico), including El Salvador in 2011. 2024 is expected to continue this tradition, with the non-stop, world-class waves of Surf City El Salvador no doubt providing once again.

ISA President Fernando Aguerre said:

“I am extremely happy for the return of the World Masters Surfing Championship, and what an ideal location in Surf City El Salvador. The list of iconic surfers who have participated in past years is incredible and I can’t wait to see the names that will be added to that list in 2024. The level of surfing and competitiveness runs hot in so many over-40 surfers and I am thrilled at the opportunity to see the world’s best back in action on Sunzal’s amazing waves. This event is a true celebration of surfing!”
