The organizers behind the Défi Wind Gruissan and the American Windsurfing Tour (AWT) are planning a windsurfing marathon in Maui, Hawaii.

According to Philippe Bru, founder of the French windsurfing race Défi Wind, and Sam Bittner, director of the American Windsurfing Tour Director, Défi Wind Maui may be a reality in the next years.

"I attended the Défi Wind Gruissan, in 2013, and knew right away I would love to see an event like this in Maui. Philippe Bru and I met up in Tahiti this past week for a racing event, and when we talked about the idea of working together to create the Defi Wind Maui, it was a perfect match," explains Bittner.
