They have completed the ISA Judging Course, commiting to a global standard and continuing the growth of worldwide judging development. With surfing becoming more mainstream in the country, it is awesome to see the Puerto Rican government backing the ISA Development programs, requiring all surf coaches and judges to have an ISA Certification. #surf #surfing

Meet Lilly von Treunfels (@lillyvont) 2014 ISA Scholarship winner from Germany. Lilly is an ambitious 15 year-old surfer. She was born in South Africa, but lives in Germany and prides herself as being one of a handful of girls that are surfing in Germany. She learned to surf in 2009 during a long stay in Barbados and she was immediately hooked. Since then, she has become part of the German National Surf Team and traveled to Ecuador to compete in the 2014 VISSLA ISA World Junior Surfing Championship. Lilly is very passionate about ocean conservation and protecting our beaches. Additionally, she has written a book about learning to surf and has been featured on national television. As an ISA Ambassador she would like to make surfing more popular in Germany and spread the word about protecting the coastlines. #Scholarship #ForABetterSurfingFuture #inspiration #surfer #surfing
