After a nervous time on hold due to travel restrictions the GWA Wingfoil World Tour has arrived in France for the Mondial du Vent in Leucate, to kick off the first event of the 2021 season!
Extra precautions are in place to ensure our crew and athletes are safe during event. 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!
Clouds held off the wind on day one, but riders arrived from all round the world with spirts high at opportunity to show what wingfoiling is all about the many different disciplines at the event.
44 men and 8 women registered for the event at Mondial Du Vent and they are ready to battle it out on the playing fields.
