The 2023 Maui Strong Aloha Classic held special significance, being the first major international event held on Maui following the devastating fires in Lahaina and surrounding areas. With an annual positive economic impact estimated to be over 1.5 million dollars, this event is needed now more than ever for the island’s recovery.
Organized by the IWT (International Wave Tour) in association with the PWA (Professional Windsurfing Association), this unified and inclusive competition brings together the windsurfing world to stand in solidarity with Maui. The global wave riding community’s heartfelt efforts will raise funds for Maui through the event’s major global broadcast. Across the event, donations will be provided to local aid local groups, Maui Strong and The Maui Food Bank.
The 2023 Maui Strong Aloha Classic Grand Final stands as a testament to the resilience and unity of both the windsurfing community and the people of Maui.
