The ISA World Stand Up Paddle
and Paddleboard Championships

24th February – 2nd March 2013

Guidelines for selection and event information.

Attached is the SNZ selection policy which covers all teams selected to represent New Zealand at ISA events.

Given the time frames of the World Champs and the 2013 Hyundai Tour, it will not be practical to include any 2013 Hyundai Tour results as the team will need to be selected prior to Christmas.

Our selection policy does not include the ability to select teams from events that are not sanctioned by SNZ.  However we can use non-sanctioned events to gauge ability and it is only logical that we do this given the timeframes we are dealing with and the fact that the Hyundai Tour has not held long distance races.

Note: Any surfer/paddler that is interested in representing New Zealand at this event needs to register their interest with Surfing New Zealand by the 19th November.  This will allow SNZ to see who is available for selection and where decisions have to be made in regards to team numbers.  Please contact New Zealand selector Lee Ryan on lee.ryan@surfingnz.co.nz

Team Numbers
  • SUP Surfing Men (2) and Women (1)
  • SUP Racing Men (2) and Women (1)
    • Technical SUP Racing Men and Women (4.5km, 12’6” boards)

Note that surfers can enter more than one race division.  However if competing in the surfing division then they are only allowed to compete in that one division.
