Women’s and Men’s finals | Copa Kitley GWA Wingfoil World Cup Rio 2023
In the women´s final Nia Suardiaz (ESP) came out of the blocks fast and quickly earned some solid numbers from the judges, even as Moona Whyte (USA) struggled to get out through the shore break. But even when Moona Whyte got some waves, she was out of sorts riding a foil on unfamiliar “lefts” and gifted Nia Suardiaz the win.
The men´s finals’ showdown was a mouthwatering prospect as Cash Berzolla (USA) and Malo Guénolé (FRA)had earned some of the day’s highest scores in their heats. Both came out firing, working the waves with tight, carving turns.
But Malo Guénolé’s big 7.13, followed shortly after by a 7.80, left Cash Berzolla trailing. The American never quite recovered, even though less than half a point separated the pair in the end.

|1. Malo Guénolé (FRA)||1. Nia Suardiaz (ESP)|
|2. Cash Berzolla (USA)||2. Moona Whyte (USA)|
|3. 3 Hugo Marin (FRA)||3. Bowien van der Linden (NED)|
