The IWT Grand Final Aloha Classic
THE ALOHA CLASSIC is the Super Bowl of the windsurfing world. This is where the great CHAMPIONS are crowned, in GIANT WAVES, reputations are made, heroes are born. “If you’re and Aloha Classic Champion… everyone knows your name.”
The IWT Grand Final – 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 a limited wild-card spot (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 all major divisions:
32 Open Pro*
16 Open AM**
* PRIORITY fields for Open Pro and Women expand if PWA partners
