Provisional Calendar 2021
We hope you are all well and finding your way through the unprecedented times we have found ourselves in over the last year.
As I am sure you can all imagine, the enormous levels of uncertainty, surrounding travel and large scale events, have had a significant impact on the PWA and the PWA Tour. Despite huge efforts on the part of our event organisers, 2020 saw only 2 events take place, with the very successful 1 Star Slalom World Tour event in Croatia, and enormously popular Youth Wave World Cup in Klitmøller both managing to avoid the worst of the pandemic and go ahead as planned.
Despite the challenges, we have been working hard with our event partners to ensure that top flight windsurfing does not disappear and that we can get back on the water, to compete, as soon as possible.
To that end, we are pleased to release a tentative schedule of events that we are working to bring you for 2021.

Although there are no guarantees as to what will be possible this year, we wanted to let you know as much information as we could at this stage, to allow riders to start to plan, assuming we are able to get back on tour. Where we have relatively solid information such as event dates or disciplines, we have listed them but we must stress that, due to the pandemic, it is still possible that anything could change, and events may be rescheduled to different dates, switch to different disciplines, or change in status from World Cup or Grand Slam to something lower. In the worst cases, it may be that we are forced to cancel events.
We will keep you updated with any changes to the calendar as they develop but, in the meantime, stay safe and we hope to see you on the water soon.
