Bodysurfing World Tour 2023

Introducing the inaugural IBSA Bodysurfing World Tour – a global event that will bring together the best bodysurfers from around the world to compete in a series of qualifying events in five regions: North America, Latin America, Polynesia, Europe/Africa, and Australia/Asia.
These events will feature a uniform judging system, allowing for a true global ranking system. The top bodysurfers from each region will then go on to compete in the World Tour Finals, held on the beautiful island of Oahu in Hawaii in 2024.
With the support of the IBSA, we aim to promote bodysurfing, unify the bodysurfing community and raise the profile of competitive bodysurfing on a global scale.
Join the USA on this exciting journey as we crown the first-ever IBSA Bodysurfing World Tour champions.
