Omaezaki is world famous as a wild windsurfing destination. Back in the 90’s Omaezaki hosted the SOMETIME WORLD CUP which was the richest windsurfing event in the world. It was absolutely gigantic. The IWT event in 2019 was the first time a major international wave event ran in Japan since the boom years of the 90’s. Now with the Unified PWA IWT Wave Tour, this event is back on top of the world where it belongs. The local passion never stopped and the local windsurfing community is extremely well organized and motivated. They have a kids club with over 50 youth riders participating in wave-sailing clinics across the year. Japan has a VERY significant windsurfing scene. One of the strongest in the world. This event celebrates and showcases that incredible local power. Welcome to Japan!
