The International Windsurfing Association Ltd. (IWA) is pleased to announce that the Professional Windsurfer's Association (PWA) has joined the IWA as an Associate Member.
Phil McGain, the chairman of the PWA, has been invited to sit on the IWA board as a director.
On making the decision Phil commented, "We will work hard with the other members of the Association to develop a unified structure for competitive windsurfing world-wide. This can only be good news for the whole sport."
Bruno de Wannemaeker, IWA Chairman, welcomed the news by saying "It's a full house! Now all significant windsurfing classes and organisations are under one roof and working hard to make a difference. The next step is to set the principles of competition structure so that windsurfing in each continent is empowered to develop the broadest competition base possible for all age and ability groups."
