There shall be no exception to this requirement of physical attendance of competitors during registration of the team.
The ISA will ONLY accept a valid passport from the country the athlete is representing as proof of nationality for participation in World Championship events. The only exception is for National Identification cards issued by the National Government of the team country that clearly shows “Nationality or Citizenship.” Note: Such a card showing place of birth but not Nationality or Citizenship of the athlete will not be accepted as place of birth does not provide automatic citizenship in many countries.
The ISA will not accept any other form of government documentation supporting a passport or eligibility of passport to verify nationality. This policy will be implemented immediately and has been updated in the ISA rulebook.
Once a competitor has surfed for a country in any ISA event, he/she generally may not surf for another country at future ISA sanctioned International Events.

Special exemptions may be considered, however, after presentation to the Executive Committee at least three (3) months prior to the start of any ISA sanctioned event. Requests for exemption will only be considered if received in writing through the affiliated NGB to the Executive Committee via the ISA office, with certified copies of all relevant documentation (passport, letters from/to National Sports Organizations or Home Affairs Offices, etc) accompanying representation. *Please see the ISA rulebook for By-Laws.

The ISA strongly recommends that each team procures travel insurance (including, but not limited to accident, liability and medical) for all of their participants. We suggest that team insurance cover accidents or injuries sustained while in Peru, including those treated in Peru or in the country of their return upon leaving Peru.
Peru is an exciting destination with 28 million residents known for their friendliness, charm and love of surfing. Almost one third of the residents reside in and around the capital city of Lima. Surfing heritage runs deep in its cultural history as archeological records have indicated that locals have been riding the waves on the surfboard shaped “caballitos de totora” or “reed boats” as far back as 1,000 B.C.!
Lima is the capital and principal hub for the 2012 World StandUp Paddle and Paddleboard Championship. You will most likely arrive at Jorge Chavez International Airport only 10 kilometers from the city center.
The event will take place near the famous Waikiki Club in the “Costa Verde” of Miraflores. Club Waikiki was founded in 1942 by the Peruvian surfers who built the building into the side of the cliff of the magnificent beach, and the establishment has since been a strong presence in the local surfing community, especially with ISA Founder and 1st President, Eduardo Arena.
Many coastal areas of Peru are still unexplored, and you just need time and an equipped vehicle in order to find the deserted beaches with prime surf. Many of these beaches are located on well known ports, such as Malabrigo, Cape Blanco and Cerro Azul. Additionally, there are beaches that face a town or city center, as in Mancora, Organs, Barranca, Costa Verde or La Punta Hermosa.
Spanish is the main language spoken in Peru. The official currency is the Nuevo Sol. As of September 2012, the exchange rate is USD$1.00 to $2.60 Peruvian Soles.

The contest is scheduled to take place in the middle of the Peruvian summer, and this typically means warm, sunny days reaching close to 24º Celsius with nights and early mornings closer to 18º Celsius.
At the time of year of the ISA World StandUp Paddle and Paddleboard Championship, the water temperature will hover around 18º Celsius.
The most popular surf spot in Lima, at the center of Miraflores. Pampilla offers surfable waves all year round, as it is a public access beach with a very consistent, easy, fun right point break with strong currents to the north on big days. There is a rock bottom, and it offers rides of 50 to 150 meters on good days. It’s ideal for longboarding and SUP.
Miraflores provides various accommodation options for teams.
