ISA快訊: 2019 ISA 世界長板衝浪錦標賽 將在法國比亞里茨將舉辦


World’s best longboarders to go for Gold at Côte des Basques May 26 – June 2

5月26日至6月2日,世界上最好的長板選手將在 CôtedesBasques 一較高下!

The International Surfing Association (ISA) is pleased to announce that Biarritz, France will host the 2019 ISA World Longboard Surfing Championship (WLSC), set to take place at Côte des Basques from May 26 – June 2.


The world championship, which is organized in partnership with the French Surfing Federation, will follow a recording-break 2018 edition that was held in Wanning, China – where 71 athletes from 22 nations competed for the Gold Medals and Team World Championship Trophy.


In 2019, the WLSC will feature a gender equal format for the second consecutive year. Each team will be able to field up to two men and two women, once more highlighting the ISA’s commitment to promote gender equality across its entire championship series.


Côte des Basques in Biarritz has played a historic role in the development of surfing in France – as well as Europe as a whole. Considered the birthplace of European Surfing in 1957, the long, gentle waves of Côte des Basques have made it an iconic spot for longboard surfing and it has hosted numerous global longboard competitions throughout the years.


The nearby Grand Plage in Biarritz was also the host of the highly successful 2017 ISA World Surfing Games, accentuated by huge crowds on the beach.


At the 2018 WLSC, USA’s Tory Gilkerson led Team USA to the Gold Medal position, and in doing so earned personal World Champion honors in the Women’s Division. Hawaii’s Kai Sallas earned Gold among the Men.

在2018年的WLSC上,美國隊的Tory Gilkerson帶領美國隊獲得金牌,也在女子組獲得了個人世界冠軍榮譽。夏威夷的Kai Sallas在男子中獲得金牌。

Longboard was first held as an ISA medal division at the 1988 ISA World Surfing Titles (now the ISA World Surfing Games) in Puerto Rico. The discipline continued as part of the ISA World Surfing Games until 2013, when it was held as a stand-alone event for the first-time in Huanchaco, Peru. 2019 will mark the third time the event will run as a separate world championship, set to crown the first ISA Longboard World Champions in France since the 1992 ISA World Surfing Championship in Lacanau.

長板衝浪項目首次納入比賽是在1988年波多黎各舉行的ISA衝浪冠軍賽(現在稱為ISA世界衝浪大賽World Surfing Games)。 作為ISA世界衝浪大賽的一部分,該項目一直延續至2013年,當時它作為首次在秘魯Huanchaco舉辦成獨立的運動項目賽事。 2019年將是該賽事第三次作為單獨的世界冠軍賽,標誌著自1992年拉卡諾舉行的ISA世界衝浪錦標賽以來,法國首屆ISA長板世界冠軍賽冠軍。

ISA President Fernando Aguerre said:

ISA總裁Fernando Aguerre說:

“We are very happy to see France continue to show its commitment and enthusiasm for the global development of all forms of surfing through the hosting of this ISA World Longboard Surfing Championship. Biarritz/Côte des Basques is an amazing location for the sport of surfing, so we are delighted to see the city leadership come forward once again to host a major ISA event. We look forward to celebrating the style and grace of longboard surfing at one of the sport’s classic wave destinations.

“我們非常高興看到法國決定舉辦這屆ISA世界長板衝浪錦標賽,繼續表現出對所有形式的衝浪運動在全球發展的諾言和熱情。 Biarritz 的CôtedesBasques是衝浪運動的絕佳地點,因此我們很高興看到該城市再次舉辦主要的ISA活動,我們期待在這項運動的經典長板衝浪風格和優雅。

“The longboard discipline has ridden the wave of momentum created by shortboard surfing’s inclusion in the Tokyo 2020 Olympics, and we have seen increased participation in the sport all around the world. 2018 featured a record number of athletes and countries from all five continents of the globe, as well as introducing new, non-traditional nations to the event – including China and Chinese Taipei, among others.

“長板的浪潮已經掀起了短板衝浪納入東京2020年奧運會所帶來的新動力,我們看到全世界越來越多地參與這項運動。 2018年,來自全球五大洲的運動員和國家數量創歷史新高,更有新的國家參與了此次活動 - 包括中國和中華台北等。

“We are confident that this world championship will not only showcase the sport in France, but also accentuate the youthful energy and high-performance action that all disciplines of surfing can bring to a global stage.


“We are looking forward to working with our partners at the French Surfing Federation and the city of Biarritz to put on an excellent showing of the sport under a global spotlight.”


ISA Executive Committee Regular Member and President of the French Surfing Federation, Jean-Luc Arassus, said:

ISA執行委員會正式會員兼法國衝浪聯合會主席Jean-Luc Arassus說:

“The French Surfing Federation sees Longboard as one of surfing’s emblematic disciplines with a rich history and culture, so it was our pleasure to put forward a bid to host the world championships in France.


“And this event takes on added importance with the qualification slots for the 2019 ANOC World Beach Games and the 2019 Pan American Games.


“Two years after hosting the ISA World Surfing Games, the city of Biarritz has again been given the honor to host one of the ISA’s premier events, which will take place at the Côte des Basques, the cradle of French surfing. It is a new opportunity to display the beauty and the quality of the waves of our coastline.


“The 2017 ISA World Surfing Games in Biarritz was a huge success, with hundreds of thousands of spectators and a record participation. We are therefore looking forward to returning to success with another ISA World Championship in France.”

“在比亞里茨舉辦的2017年ISA世界衝浪比賽取得了巨大的成功,成千上萬的觀眾和參賽記錄。 因此,我們期待著在法國再次舉辦ISA世界錦標賽。“
