- 28 men and ten women were registered
- Today, the competition is scheduled to commence at 7 am (GMT +2). Make sure to stay tuned and follow all the exciting action through our social media channels
The planet’s best wingfoil athletes are primed for battle on the North Sea at the GWA Wingfoil World Cup Denmark, where four world titles could be decided in the coming days.
The tour leaders in the Surf-Freestyle discipline, Spain’s Nia Suardiaz, 16, and the US’s Chris MacDonald, 17, could land the crowns with wins at the western Danish fishing town of Hvide Sande. The remarkable Suardiaz could also secure the FreeFly-Slalom title if she triumphs in the discipline at the world cup event, which is the focal point of the watersports’ Waterz Festival that has been staged in Hvide Sande for more than a decade.
The men’s FreeFly-Slalom discipline leader, France’s Titouan Galea, could also close out a world title with a victory in Denmark, though he would be relying on his closest rivals Francesco Cappuzzo (ITA) and Bastian Escofet (FRA) finishing fourth or worse.
Don’t forget to tune in and and follow all of the action as we run the competition here in Hvide Sande over the next six days.
