PWA x Defi

Two of the most prestigious competition platforms in the sport, the PWA and Defi Wind are pleased to announce a new era of cooperation.

Beginning next week, the Defi Wind Superstars will be the first Defi event to be sanctioned by the PWA and formally recognised for the high standards and special contribution to the sport that the Defi events generate year on year.
In what is a natural evolution for events at the highest level in windsurfing, PWA and Defi Wind will work together to expand communication and help bring the event to the widest possible audience.
In a move that will mutually benefit the fans, the riders, the windsurfing industry and both PWA and Defi Wind, content from the event will be shared across all channels, reaching more people than ever before, and paving the way for even greater collaborations in the future. 
Speaking of the new agreement, Jimmy Diaz, PWA President said: “Phillipe Bru has done an extraordinary job in creating and growing the Defi Wind into the great event it is today.  We at the PWA are very happy to announce this collaboration with Phillipe and his team helping push forward the envelope of competitive windsurfing at the highest levels.  Through this collaboration we hope to help further promote the sport that we are all so passionate about and create a positive dynamic for windsurfing, the sailors, the industry, and especially the fans.  We look forward to future possibilities in expanding this great concept.”
Philippe Bru, the creator and director of Defi Wind was equally positive about the decision:"This is an agreement that only pulls sport upwards, we are talking about promoting athletes and structures, in the collective interest. The status of the Défi Wind today is strengthened with this cooperation with the PWA, which manages competition at a very high level. This is real recognition for the Défi, which confirms the essential place of this event in the world of windsurfing."
The pro aspects of the competition set to start on Tuesday, 2nd November, and the PWA will be bringing you all the news from the event through our online channels, so stay tuned for all the action from Gruissan, as we embark on this new partnership.
