ISD LogoWelcome to International Surfing Development, dedicated to developing the sport of surfing and SUP throughout the world.

We offer a wide range of surfing and SUP development programs which we run throughout the world from the absolute grass roots level through to working with National Governing Bodies to assist, develop, grow and nurture surfing in a responsible professional manner. We also train and equipment professional lifeguard services and can provide Beach Management Plans.

Our programs include coaching and instructing to the grass roots surfers and paddlers themselves from the beginners that have never surfed or paddled  before to those that are capable surfers/paddlers and wanting to improve and progress from their current level.

We run International Surfing Association, ISA, accreditation courses, enabling participants to gain professional qualifications in the surf and SUP industry to the highest possible standard. The ISA is the International Surfing Association, the international governing body of surfing. For more information on the ISA, please visit their website here. As well as running ISA courses, we also train and mentor new ISA Presenters in their respective countries to enable them to run ISA programs in their home country or area.

To maximise beach and ocean safety, we provide training of professional lifeguards, facilitating the purchase or the required lifeguarding equipment and formulating comprehensive Beach Management Plans. This is all focused on helping each and every location achieve the goal of Zero Preventable Deaths.

As we do a lot of our work in areas and countries very new to the surfing industry and surf scene, we work with groups aspiring to launch a National Governing Body (NGB) or newly established NGB’s and work with them to grow and develop their association as well as their surf industry in their country.
