A total of 24 countries and over 150 athletes and coaches are confirmed to compete in the 2013 Reef ISA World Surfing Games, in the tropical surf town of Santa Catalina, located 6 hours from Panama City by car. Each National Team consists of up to 4 Open Men and 2 Open Women surfers plus Team Officials.
The confirmed countries are Argentina, Australia, Brazil, Canada, Chile, Costa Rica, Ecuador, El Salvador, Guatemala, Italy, Jamaica, Japan, Mexico, New Zealand, Panama, Peru, Puerto Rico, Russia, South Africa, Sweden, Switzerland, Turkey, Uruguay, and Venezuela.

“There are only a few days to go before the Opening Ceremony and the start of the 2013 Reef ISA World Surfing Games. All National Teams have been announced and the athletes have begun to arrive in the surf town of Santa Catalina, Panama,” remarked ISA President Fernando Aguerre.

“The surfers will be practicing at the world-class reef break waves in preparation for the World Championship that begins with the Opening Ceremony on Saturday and the competition on Sunday. Great surfing conditions and waves in the head high to overhead range in Panama’s 84 degree (29 C) water are welcoming the delegations. As I like to remind all competitors, representing your country for national pride is one of the highest honors. You are already a winner by competing on behalf of your National Surfing Team.”

“Plenty of contestable waves are lining up for the entire event; starting off with a solid SSW swell, then possibly ending with another good SW swell. At least for the first few days or so, conditions are looking good as well, with mornings offering the best wind with incoming tide,” said Surfline Forecaster Jonathan Warren. “At this point, we’re looking at head high sets or better for the entire event.” (

    Mr. Winner is known for his stories such as Wild Bill, he was never a part of that investigation he was part of the problem helping Wild Bill get rid of the properties on Don Winners web site. Mr. Winner should be avoided at all costs first he can’t spell as a writer should and second of all you just have to read his blog to understand that insanity must run in his family. It is apparent This all stemmed from Jerry Hall getting two of Don Winners co-hearts arrested and sent to Prison 1) Tom McMurrain and Two Eddie Kahn, that is what has set Don Winner on to Jerry Hall. Jerry Hall killed Don Winners money train…. Sorry Don You really must be poor.
