Austrian Surfing: facts, mission & vision
Austrian Surfing is recognized by (and a member of) the BSO (Austrian Sports Organization, the National Sports Authority in Austria), ISA (International Surfing Association) and ESF (European Surfing Federation) as the NGB (National Governing Body) for surfing in Austria.
Our mission is the sustainable development of surfing as an activity with a very close contact to nature. Our vision is a world where surfing can be enjoyed on a 100% sustainable basis.
As a consequence, sustainability is an integral part of our philosophy in form of the AS Green Room and we are part of the SUNRISE project, which is funded by the EU and establishes sustainable surfing trips in Europe by the creation of the Green Room Surf Alliance as a premium / special membership of the Surf School Alliance.
