New GWA event: Tarifa Wing Pro 2020

New wingfoil event added to the GWA 2020 calendar!

We’re heading to Europe’s “Capital of Wind” for the first edition of the Tarifa Wing Pro 2020 in December.

 

Tarifa needs no introduction as the undisputed watersports capital of Europe. But there’s a new wingfoil competition in town and what a way to end this year it is going to be!

Let’s take a look at what the Tarifa Wing Pro is all about!
The action is going down from 27 to 30 December. The event is a GWA Invitational focused on Surf Freestyle, with the location chosen based on the best conditions for the competition.
There’s going to be a total prizemoney of 10.000 €, so riders are looking at a nice post-Christmas present for making the podium at the Tarifa Wing Pro!
