Tour stop number three and the GWA hits the Canaries for GWA Wingfoil World Cup Lanzarote. The focus for this event is Surf-Freestyle and Lanzarote offers a playground for water sports with numerous locations to score an epic session across the island. We’re in the well-known Costa Teguise to seek strong winds and make use of the varied water conditions that hit the reefs.
The forecast for the week looks great for competition. Although the waves could be bigger we should see 20 knots of wind on most days with the wind swell giving some nice rolling ramps for our athletes to ride and use as kickers! Expect bigger and better freestyle moves from our competitors over the next four days and, with a live stream, you can follow the action every step of the way.
Day one – Wednesday 6th – delivered strong winds from start to finish with the waves getting bigger as the tide got higher. Surf-Freestyle heats commenced for both men and women.
