Re-watch the live stream from the Omaezaki World Cup in Japan. The Spicare Omaezaki Japan World Cup marks the first event of the unified PWA / IWT World Wave Tour. Omaezaki is world famous as a wild windsurfing destination. Back in the 90’s Omaezaki hosted the SOMETIME WORLD CUP which was a gigantic windsurfing event. The IWT event in 2019 was the first time a major international wave event ran in Japan since the boom years of the 90’s. Now with the unified PWA/IWT Wave Tour, this event is back on top of the world where it belongs. The local passion never stopped and the local windsurfing community is extremely well organised and motivated.
