AASP Mission Statement

The objective of the AASP is to create and sustain a legitimate international professional adaptive surfing tour and elevate the sport of adaptive surfing to an elite professional level. It will be the responsibility of the AASP to be the international governing body of professional adaptive surfing and its world rankings. It is our intentions with the support of mainstream surf, sports, medical companies, and large corporate entities to elevate this sport to a professional platform and help adaptive athletes reach the goal of becoming professional adaptive surfers.

This is achieved by combining major adaptive surf events from around the world with the same classification structure, priority judging, and point system. In 2022 the AASP will have two tour stop at the Hawaiian Adaptive Surfing Championships and the US Open Adaptive Surfing Championships, with an overall combined points from both events to determine a true world champion of adaptive surfing in all nine divisions.

Stoke for Life Foundation and the A.A.S.P. would like to thank those adaptive surfers who had a voice in helping structure this event. We will continue to use the input of the adaptive surf community to evolve competitive adaptive surfing to an elite world class level.

Stoke for Life Foundation and the A.A.S.P. would also like to thank the University of St. Augustine for Health Sciences, Dr. Maureen Johnson, Dr. Heather David, and the occupational therapy and physical therapy students at the University of St. Augustine for Health Sciences for your knowledge, expertise, dedication, and assisting the athletes to ensure a safe and enjoyable championship.
