2010 ISA World Masters Surfing Championship, Santa Catalina, Panama, Aug. 29 – Sept. 5

The venue for the planet’s greatest event in Masters Surfing, the ISA World Masters Surfing Championship (WMSC) has been named.

The perfect waves of Santa Catalina, on the north Pacific coast of Panama, will see the best over-35-year-old surfers from all over the world from August 29 to September 5.

After having an inaugural WMSC in Rincón, Puerto Rico in 2007 and a successful second edition in the powerful waves of Punta Rocas, Peru, in 2008, the Masters family will gather together again, this time in the wave rich nation of Panama to compete for the world title in the following divisions:

  • Masters (Over 35)
  • Women Masters (Over 35)
  • Grand Masters (Over 40)
  • Kahunas (Over 45)
  • Grand Kahunas (Over 50)

Regarding the confirmation of this year's Masters event, Fernando Aguerre, President of the International Surfing Association said: "The ISA congratulates Panama on securing the rights to host the ISA World Masters Surfing Championship for the first time.

"We are looking forward to a world class event in the great waves of Santa Catalina."

South Africa has dominated the overall team standings for the past events, and it will be interesting to see who is able to bring the strongest Masters team to Panama for 2010.

The ISA is eager to see the best Masters surfers compete and win at this year's event. Who’s going to take home the medals for 2010? We will know on September 5th.
