Message from IFWA World Tour Director CarolAnne Giustina
Yesterday was an amazing day!!! I want to thank the IFWA Board for their votes of confidence to elect me as the new IFWA World Tour Director. It means a lot to me because not only was the IFWA Board behind me but also many riders have expressed their support as well.
I am so excited about all the new things happening with the IFWA and the 2018 Freeride World Championship Tour. We have 5 amazing locations this year and a real chase for the IFWA Championship with a record purse and incentives for the Final in Japan in November.
It takes a lot of people to make the IFWA World Tour happen. Thank you to all the Tour Organizers: Luis Centeno Fragoso, Jac Mouazan, Eric Forney, Pierre Maixent, Abraham Ho, Akinori Oyama, and all our support from Blowsion for the Blowsion Surf Slam. And thank you to all the riders because without you, there would be no IFWA World Tour.
Special thanks to Mark Gomez for all the work he has put into the new website, Facebook and instagram platforms, thanks to Chris Rauen for his contributions of photos and time, and thanks to Antoine Mortoire for the great video.
Positive things are happening this year for IFWA and the IFWA World Tour. See you out there soon! Sharing the Freeride Spirit with the World. Sunny Days and Good Waves to you all!
