GWA Wingfoil World Cup Leucate | DAY 2

Day 2's downtime due to rain, let hosts talk to Balz Muller about the future of the sport…

We had a bit of a rainy start to DAY 2 here in Leucate at Mondial du Vent. The wind is taking its time to wake up, but the riders were engaged from the get-go, taking advantage of this time to propose their suggestions on the judging criteria, ensuring everyone is on the same page before they hit the water. The champion of the previous event Balz Muller seems to be excited about different possibilities this sport has to offer and what wingfoiling is all about. Unfortunately, the winds never reached the shores of Leucate. The waiting game for the wind continues here at Mondial du Vent, but the riders remind us that game only stops when you stop playing whilst they continue to enjoy the ocean and keep the spirits high for the rest of the event. The forecast looks promising for the weekend. Fingers crossed!
