The previous winner of the GWA Event in Tarifa, Riccardo Zorzi (ITA) seemed to be handling the weekend’s conditions with expertise, throwing down some big moves in the tricky Tramontana conditions.
“I am slightly nervous because the level has gone up massively since the last event, the guys are really pushing what is possible on a wing. But, I am staying positive as I have been training hard in the off season in Mexico with the Slingshot team.”
Riders have traveled from far and wide for the GWA WingFoil World Cup in Leucate, for example, New Zealand newcomer, Jeremiah McDonald, (then no relation) the Mcdonalds trio (father, mother and son!) from Hood River and Hawaii’s phenomenal watermen, Zane Schweitzer (HAW).
Never before has the GWA seen a whole family trio entered into the competition but the Mcdonalds family are ready to take the competition by storm. Chris Mcdonald, one of the youngest riders at 16 years old is definitely one to keep your eye on.
