Introducing the GWA Class Discipline

Learning to Wingfoil


GWA Race class to run purely race competitions with one champion on each continent

Formed as a united, independent body by wingfoiling’s most established brands in the summer of 2020 the goal of the Global Wingsports Association (GWA) is to represent the interests of wingsports in general and to support and promote the interests of all professional and nonprofessional wing riders worldwide.

With that, on June 9th, 2021, the GWA has established the GWA Wingfoil Race Class to house and develop wingfoil racing for professionals and nonprofessionals on a national, continental and world level.  The wing class discipline will be governed according to the standards set out by the World Sailing Federation. This class will encompass all purely race competitions for wingfoiling. 

The GWA Wingfoil Race Class is welcoming all wingfoil brands, MNA’s and national Wingfoil Associations as well as wingfoil athletes as members.

The GWA will continue to run the Wingfoil World Tour for professional riders in the two disciplines Surf-Race and Surf-Freestyle.
