GWA Wingfoil World Cup Leucate

Day 1 of the tour kicks off…

After a nervous time on hold due to travel restrictions the GWA Wingfoil World Tour is stoked to arrive at Mondial du Vent here in Leucate, for the first event of the 2021 season! Riders have arrived from all around the world and lift those spirits high to show what Wingfoiling is all about through their entry from the many different disciplines (Freestyle, Kiteboarding, Windsurfing and Foiling) 44 men and 8 women registered for the event this morning here at Mondial Du Vent and they are ready to battle it out on the playing fields. With the host of 52 riders in the ranks who are out to unseat the previous event champions Balz Müller and Eva Weiss when the main event begins. The competition season has just commenced, so it’s too soon to make any assumptions that the first place positions are by any means unassailable. Although the clouds have won the battle with the wind today, the riders hit the water for a quick tow in session to get warmed up for tomorrow’s first possible start of the competition announced at 10 AM CET.
