Please throughly read the following email if you were planning on attending Worlds this year.
Centurion & Supreme Boats, the event organizer for the annual World Wake Surfing Championship, has decided to make announcements about Worlds this year.
Please click them by clicking on each announcement below.
- Centurion & Supreme Boats Decision to Make Worlds a live-only (non-modular) event
- Centurion & Supreme Boats Decision to Not Permit Russian Athletes to Participate in Worlds
In view of these developments by Centurion & Supreme Boats, the CWSA announces the following:
CWSA will offer a Gold level season concluding event in the module format. There will be no limitation on brand or model of tow boat for this module event.
This is due to the recent developments and the continued uncertainty of travel due the myriad of COVID vaccination requirements for travel to and from certain countries, quarantine and testing restrictions, the continued limitations on government diplomatic services, and other travel issues.
Further details of this event will be announced in the coming days:
- The module filming dates will begin on September 23 and end on September 30, 2022. Module applications will open September 12.
- Results and the WRS ranking for this event will be concluded and published on or about October 13, 2022.
- Registration will be invitation only for all athletes who have meet the previously published criteria for the World Wake Surfing Championship.
The CWSA regrets that the 2022 World Wake Surfing Championship will not be ranked in the CWSA World Ranking System.
The exclusion of any group of qualified individual athletes from any event in the CWSA series of events for any competitive season, including the World Championship, based solely upon the nationality of the athlete is inconsistent with the CWSA’s governing documents and statutes, guiding principles and its position as set forth in the March 6, 2022, statement.
Moreover, such an exclusion will impair the integrity of the CWSA’s World Ranking System.
Our sport, and many other sports, has faced challenges often in these past several years from circumstances imposed by external factors.
The CWSA will continue to adapt to these circumstances consistent with its mission and purpose to develop the sport of wake surfing on a global basis.
The CWSA would like to express our gratitude to each and every one of you for trying your hardest this year, whether on the wave or behind the scenes.
