The ACCnet21 Australian Adaptive Surfing Team Set For Big Campaign At 2017 Stance ISA World Adaptive Surfing Championship In The USA

Posted on 30.11.2017

The ACCnet21 Australian Adaptive Surfing Team have jetted out to California, setting their sights on medals at the 2017 Stance ISA World Adaptive Surfing Championship set to be held at La Jolla for the third year running.

Team Captain and two-time World Adaptive Surfing Champion Mark ‘Mono’ Stewart will have the group of nine athletes fired up for another big campaign when things get underway on November 29th.

After a 4th place team’s finish in 2016, the group will be looking to finish in the medals this campaign and need look no further than experienced Aussie campaigners Stewart (Gold Medallist 2016), Matt Formston (Bronze Medallist 2016) and Barney Miller (Silver Medallist 2016) for inspiration at this year’s championship.

The 2017 Stance ISA World Adaptive Surfing Championship runs from November 29th through December 3rd, 2017 and can be viewed live HERE – http://isaworlds.com/adaptive/2017/en/live

Adaptive surfing continues to develop at a rapid pace and after the International Olympic Committee’s historic decision to include Surfing on the Sports Programme of the Tokyo 2020 Games in August of 2016, the International Surfing Association has continued with its ambitions to include Adaptive Surfing in the Paralympic Games, and recently announced that it has been recognized as the official International Federation for the sport of Para Surfing (also known as ‘Adaptive Surfing’) by the International Paralympic Committee

The ACCnet21 Australian Adaptive Surfing Team is proudly supported by Hydralyte Sports, the Australian Institute of Sport and Surfing Australia.
