Our Mission

Thank you for your interest in AWSI.  We are a trade advocacy group that represents Windsurf, Kiteboard, and Stand-Up Paddle companies within the larger outdoor sports world.  Our number one goal is to bring retailer and manufacturers to the same place. We work with national trade show event administrations to get our exhibiting and buying members increased exposure, better booth rates, and travel/hospitality incentives. Along with assisting our buyer/manufacturer members at trade shows the AWSI organizes seminars and talks designed on increasing awareness on instructor/school certification, safety, world tours, contests, and retail knowledge .

The AWSI will be promoting events in 2017 and beyond that includes windsurf, kite, and SUP categories under one event title. We support the inclusiveness for these categories to be represented under one umbrella as a means to showcase this trifecta of Wind and Water Sports to retailers and the public.
