Press release from the Global Wingsports Association 26/10/2020
Fortaleza boasts 25 kilometres of beaches and November marks the peak of the windy season of the region, making it the perfect location for our four-day competition!
The first ever official GWA competition: the international GWA Wing-Foil Super Grand Slam, is to be held from November 10th – 14th 2020 in Fortaleza, the state capital of Ceara in beautiful Brazil.
The SuperFoil Brasil event will crown the champion in the Surf-Freestyle discipline as the highlight of the competition. Surf-Freestyle is a discipline that allows for maximum freedom of expression with scores for riding waves, carving and stomping out tricks, so creativity and making the most of the spot’s conditions is key!
To showcase the incredible variety of what’s possible with a wing and hydrofoil board, there will be show competitions in the Ocean Surfing discipline, focusing on the flow of riding open ocean waves.
With the health, safety and wellbeing of everyone involved as our absolute priority, the event will be held under the strictest hygienic regulations to ensure WHO-conforming safety protocols.
