Anti-Doping

The ISA is unequivocally opposed, on ethical and medical grounds, to the practice of doping in sport and fully supports the position of the International Olympic Committee and World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA) against the use of banned substances and methods.

The use, possession and/or trafficking of banned substances, methods, or the encouragement or counseling to use banned substances, or methods, and/or taking measures to mask the use of banned substances, or methods by any participant in competitions over which the ISA has jurisdiction is unacceptable and will not be tolerated.

As a signatory to the World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA) Code, the ISA implements a strict adherence to the Code as a way to ensure a clean, healthy and fair sporting atmosphere for all athletes.  By conducting both in-competition and out-of-competition testing, the ISA confirms proper testing and results management methods are administered throughout the sport.

The rules and regulations of ISA’s Anti-doping Policy aim to:

  • Promote Surfing as a drug-free sport;
  • Uphold and preserve the ethics of Sport;
  • Ensure that all athletes have an opportunity to compete equally;
  • Safeguard the physical health and mental integrity of the athletes;
  • Establish consistent standards of anti-doping policy and testing;
  • Encourage Member Federations execute similar regulations with their athletes.

In addition, the ISA strives to continuously educate and monitor the National Governing Bodies’ yearly activities regarding their self-implemented policies to members.  It is of the utmost importance that the ISA member federations accept and promote an anti-doping policy within their national events, camps and championships.

The ISA is available and willing to assist any member federations with the implementation and organization of a strong anti-doping plan. 

Please contact surf@isasurf.org to discuss bettering the drug-free future of your athletes.
