2009 IBA World Tour with full schedule

The International Bodyboarding Association has unveiled the full schedule for the 2009 IBA World Tour.

Its been a tricky start to the year for the promoters in the first semester with new rules and regulations to follow as well as increased prize-money for both Men & Women.

Remember that events are only 100% confirmed once the sanction fee is received 3 months prior to the competition.

With that in mind here is 2009:
