American Windsurfing Tour now called International Windsurfing Tour

The American Windsurfing Tour (AWT) is going global. It’s name has changed to the International Windsurfing Tour (IWT).
As the largest wave sailing circuit in the world, they have decided to update their brand after seven years of success and growth. It’s a logical step now that the tour no longer takes place solely in America.

Recently the AWT expanded to Mexico and Morocco, so the change to International Windsurfing Tour makes total sense. However, the new IWT has a few surprises for fans and athletes.

With the new name comes additional tour stops. The 2017 International Windsurfing Tour schedule features ten stages and it will run six divisions: Pro, Women, Amateur, Master, Grand Master, and Youth.

But how will the IWT coexist with the PWA Wave World Tour, especially when both organizations award separate titles at the same venue in Maui? Why couldn’t the IWT and the PWA blend their efforts and deliver a stronger circuit?
