The ISF Body Surfing Championships are run by the Gillis Beach Bodysurfing Assn. Participants range in ability from the relative novice body surfers to former World Champions. No special equipment, swim fins only. Entries must be received on or before Wednesday, July 29, 2020 or a late fee will be assessed. Beach entries will only be accepted if space in age groups is available. Applications, event results and photos are available on links from this webpage.
