WOWI is a network of women windsurfers based in Ireland. It was established by Charlotte & Anna in September 1999 with the aim of raising the profile and level of women’’s windsurfing in Ireland.

It was also formed with the idea of introducing windsurfers to each other on a sporting and social level so that together we can meet and share all the excitement and challenges of this exhilarating sport.

And no, we WOWIs have nothing against men - in fact, some of our best friends etc etc.

We just want to get more girls on the water whatever way we can. The more, the merrier, so the guys are more than welcome along too!

Surfing at the Tokyo 2020 Olympic Games will take place in the ocean, not in a wave pool. The waiting period runs from July 24 to August 9.
