Meet 2017 ISA Scholarship winner from #India, fifteen-year-old, Chandrappa Jamo. Chandrappa started surfing just over a year ago and has been using only borrowed boards. Despite the short amount of time he has been surfing, he is hooked and believes it will be a life-long hobby. The ISA Scholarship will allow him to purchase his first surfboard so that he can progress much faster and keep his passion alive. Chandrappa will also be able to pay for his school uniform, tuition fees, and travel expenses to enter the Chennai Competition in India.

Hawaii's @brisahennessy joined an elite group of surfers upon being crowned a two-time ISA Jr Champ at the 2017 #VISSLAISAworldjuniors in Japan. Who else has accomplished this feat? Do @tatiwest, @tylerwright, and @stephaniegilmore ring a bell? I think it's safe to say Brisa has a bright future ahead of her.
