APP World Tour Hawaiian Leg Cancelled

After much discussion with the State of Hawaii, Maui County and the APP World Tour partners over the past days, the APP have been left with no choice but to cancel the opening leg of the 2021 Tour in Hawaii that was scheduled for the 14th – 24th October.

All the reports indicate that the Delta Variant has escalated fast, and projections show the peak of this surge coming by mid-October, with much tighter restrictions on events, gatherings and sporting events to come over the coming 2 months.

With the cancellation of other upcoming events, parties agreed that it would be better to err on the side of caution and with as much advance notice as possible for all concerned, with us now 60 days out. That being said, the APP are still working on a solution for maintaining a US stop on this year’s Tour.

Meanwhile, it is all systems go and entries are open at for Gran Canaria (November – Surf & Race), Paris (December – Race), Sunset (January – Surf) and the Grand Finals (Race) in February and we are hoping for the final confirmation of Morocco once the latest updates come through on their situation as it relates to the pandemic.

Please note that any registrations for Hawaii will of course either be refunded in full or transferred to the next event dependent on the wishes of each athlete.
