The IWT Wave Tour

We’re proud to present the 2022 calendar, with a truly legendary list of the worlds’ best wave riding locations. 2022 will see some ongoing travel restrictions, so we encourage all riders to hold off booking definite travel plans until closer to the event dates when they can be confirmed. Each of the IWT Wave Tour events will earn overall ranking points to qualify RIDERS for the Pro Men, Women, Youth and Masters divisions in The IWT Grand Final Aloha Classic.

* IWT Wave Titles: Pro Men, Women, Youth & Masters will count their best 3 x 3 star (60%) event results + the Grand Final 5 star (100%) event result.
* IWT Wave Titles: Open & G.Masters will count their best 3 x 3 star event results with no Grand Final.
* IWT #1 ranked overall G.Master will be offered a place in the Masters division of the IWT Grand Final Aloha Classic.
* IWT #1 ranked overall Open rider will be offered access to the PRO division the following year.

The IWT Grand Final Aloha Classic

The Aloha Classic is the pinnacle event of our sport. The single most prestigious windsurfing event title in the world today. To earn a place in this elite event, riders qualify by competing at the earlier IWT Wave Tour events, or be granted one of the limited wild-cards (or be in the top PWA rankings with event partnership). This really is The Super Bowl of Windsurfing and the whole wave riding world tunes in to see the best of the best battle it out in the giant waves of mighty Ho’okipa Beach on Maui’s legendary North Shore. This event decides the overall IWT champions in 4 major divisions: Open Pro*, Women*Youth*, Masters*.

* The Grand Final event window permit from Maui County does not allow enough time for a full G.Masters or Open fleets to compete. However, the overall winner of the G.Masters fleet division, after 3 x 3 star event results, will be granted a special place in the Masters fleet of 16 in the Grand Final. 

* All Division Champions will be crowned at the Aloha Closing Ceremony (PARTY).
