Crowning our winners at the GWA Wingfoil World Cup France
Despite the crew and athletes remaining on standby, the wind did not materialise for the final day of competition in Leucate.
The course was set, the riders were ready, but the conditions were unsuitable for competition on our final day in France. This means that the Surf-Freestyle finals were unfortunately not run, meaning the final results would be a joint first place for our two finalists, Alan Fedit and Xavi Corr and a joint 3rd place for Balz Muller and Axel Gerard.
