The International Surfing Association welcomed surfers from more than 30 nations, including Canada, to the Billabong ISA World Surfing Games on Tuesday in Lima, Peru.

Seven surfers from Nova Scotia will be representing Canada at the Games, which will take place from October 16-27 at “Senoritas y Caballeros” in Punta Hermosa, located about 42 kilometers from Lima.

In the Men’s Open division, Logan Landry, Jacob Albury, Myles Baldwin and Ben Woodford will wear the Maple Leaf. In the Women’s Open it will be Julie Baldwin Forbes and Janine Isabella Strickland. And in the Longboard division it will be Brian Villeneuve.

The team will be managed by Canadian Surfing Association (CSA) president John Fluke.

Señoritas is described as a long left with plenty of power that barrels on its best days. Caballeros is a well-known classic right, with long rides that on the best days can last up to 300 meters.
