GWA Wingfoil World Cup Leucate - Day One

After a nervous time on hold due to travel restrictions the GWA Wingfoil World Tour is stoked to arrive here at Mondial du Vent in Leucate, to kick off the first event of the 2021 season!
Due to the global pandemic we’ve put extra precautions in place to ensure our crew and athletes are safe during their time with the GWA Wingfoil World Tour at Mondial du Vent here in Leucate.

Daily temperature and health checks will be taken before the action starts. Thankfully everyone has been given a clean bill of health and the event is off to a very smooth start.

The event is closed to the public and only GWA crew and riders can enter, so make sure you show them some love and support on their social channels to keep the motivation strong!

The clouds were holding off the wind yesterday, but they certainly were not holding off the spirits here at Mondial du Vent.

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, 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.
15 nationalities have appeared with riders spreading across disciplines and generations. This is by far the most diverse batch of competitors we’ve had in any of our previous competitions!

The pioneers of this new sport are evolving what we know to be possible on a wingfoil whilst training for this competition.
