Final World Title Scenarios

World Title Scenarios 

With just one event left in the season, we take a look at the current rankings and possible World Title scenarios!

The Tarifa Wing Pro happening from the 27th to the 30th of December 2021 will be the final event of the 2021 season.

Surf-Freestyle Discipline

Titouan Galea may have suffered an early exit in the surf-freestyle discipline in Dakhla, but he has made up the lost ground with his win in Fortaleza. Going into the final event of the year, Titouan only needs to finish 5th or above to be crowned Surf-Freestyle World Champion. If Titouan were to finish in 9th position or lower, that would open the door for Camille Bouyer, who could become winner of the GWA Wingfoil World tour, IF he were to win the event in Tarifa. The stage is set for an exciting show to conclude the 2021 season.

For the women’s side, Bowien van der Linden is now already officially our new GWA Surf-Freestyle World Champion, regardless of the result that she gets in our final event of the year. Bowien has been riding exceptionally well this season, winning two out of three events in this discipline, and constantly pushing herself further with each performance. 

“I really didn’t expect to win the World Title this year,” said Bowien“With the first event in Leucate, I didn’t even feel that I was good enough to go, but my manager really pushed and motivated me. So it’s so cool, and I’m really enjoying the whole World Tour. It’s a great example for more girls to come, because you become more inspired when you come and compete, and become part of the community. I think we all push each other and help each other improve.”

Race Discipline

Titouan Galea has proven himself unbeatable with his speed and precision this season and is now officially the winner of the GWA Wingfoil World Tour in the discipline Race! He has won all three events this year, so is the official champion, regardless of the result he gets in Tarifa.

“I’m happy to have won both disciplines here at this event,” said Titouan. “And I’m very happy to have won in the Race Discipline. I hope to do really well at the next event in Tarifa and be able to take the Surf-Freestyle World Title also. The organization of the GWA is fantastic, and it’s been a great event here in Brazil.” 

On the women’s side, it’s a tight race between Olivia Piana and Bowien van der Linden, where it will all come down to our final event in Tarifa. If Olivia gets 3rd place or higher in Tarifa, she will be crowned winner of the GWA Wingfoil World Tour in the discipline Race. However, if Olivia finishes in 4th or lower, and Bowien wins the event, Bowien will take the crown. Olivia took the win in both Leucate and Fortaleza but missed our last event in Dakhla due to injury, which cost her valuable points and allowed Bowien to advance further. One thing for sure is that the Tarifa Wing Pro is going to be a major showdown between these two women!
