Islas Canarias PWA Awards

Have You Entered Yet?

You may remember that at the start of June this year we launched the Islas Canarias PWA excellence awards, if you haven’t heard about them already or if you fancy a full recap you can find everything you need to know about them here and here.

The awards are well underway, but don’t worry if you haven’t entered yet as you still have the chance to win an award in the following categories: Biggest wave of the year, jump of the year, best single wave riding move of the year, freestyle move of the year, wipe out of the year and the racing move of the year. There will also be a completely separate set of awards for; PWA sailor of the year, an honorary award, photographer of the year, short film of the year and last but not least an award for outstanding achievement in windsurfing cinematography. 

The PWA is inviting all riders, whether you are a seasoned pro or a weekend warrior, to enter the competition NOW. All you have to do to enter is head over to the PWA website and fill out the submission form combined with your link, of either an image or video clip, which you would like to nominate. Your fate from there is in the hands of the sailors representative of the PWA committee.


If you aren’t lucky enough to have an amazing image or video clip to enter yourself, then how about nominating either, one of your favourite sailors or favourite moments of the year, for any of the aforementioned categories. Not only will you help them to achieve the recognition they deserve, but you will also be playing a major role in the creation of an amazing archive that captures the essence of our wonderful sport for years to come. Furthermore the footage and images you have chosen will play a pivotal part in showcasing windsurfing to rest of the world. To nominate one or more of the outstanding moments of 2012 simply attach a link to your chosen, image or clip, and they will instantly be entered into the respective category.

Over the coming weeks we will slowly be releasing sneak peaks of the moments we think standout thus far, via both Facebook and the PWA website, but you can start making your entries and nominations now as all entries will be considered by the PWA panel.

So what are you waiting for? Claim your place in the windsurfing spotlight now, and remember that the competition is completely free to enter and you can enter as many times as you want, so you really have nothing to lose but everything to gain.

Lastly good luck and we look forward to receiving your entries.
