Billy Stairmand and Ella Williams will spearhead New Zealand's chances at the World Surfing Games in Costa Rica.

Stairmand is the top-ranked Kiwi on world rankings, placed 16th in the second-tier men's World Qualifying Series, while Williams is a regular on the equivalent women's tour. She won bronze at the International Surfing Association event last year.

The other members of the six-strong New Zealand team to compete at Jaco Beach are Matt Hewitt, Taylor Hutchison, Zen Wallis and Raiha Ensor.
