The World Skateboard Federation
ISSA is a part of WSF.
The WSF was created to...
- Promote skateboarding around the world
- Grow and connect relevant skateboarders, organizations, brands and manufacturers for the further expansion of skateboarding
- Assist in building quality skateparks
- Provide assistance to top skateboarders to attend international skateboarding contests
- Create a centralized judging and scoring system
- Provide a platform to create national, regional and local contests.
ISSA part of WSF
ISSA has joined forces with WSF. The same path as the International Skateboard Associations for Downhill and Freestyle has taken. It seemed logical doing so with the more strong focus on taking into account the existing discipline structure of skateboarding. And work for an international skateboard federation being able to work hard and push for all the very different aspects of skateboarding. On the daily work on the field it does not make much difference from today's much separated skateboard worlds between the disciplines going on. But having an international skateboarding federation it seems very logical having all the skateboard disciplines under the same roof. And having a federation structure living up to that.
