Day Three of the Tarifa Wing Pro was all about the tow-in action, as we ran an expression session in the waves whilst the athletes and crew waited for the wind to arrive. 

A total of 18 athletes signed up to participate in the tow-in competition, and we saw some amazing surfing from riders such as young gun Malo Guenole, Titouan Galea from New Caledonia, Kane de Wilde from USA and Italian Riccardo Zorzi. The crowds were lined up on Balneario Beach enjoying all of the action. 

Malo Guenole stole the win with some amazing surfing, great wave selection, and impressive back-flip to finish off the session. 

“It was a really fun tow-in session,” said Malo. “The waves were closing a bit, but it was super fun with all the riders. There is no wind today, so this was the best alternative.”

During the downtime this week, we spoke with Olivia Piana, one of our top female riders on tour, about how wingfoiling is evolving, and why she loves it so much. 

“I believe wingfoiling will become the biggest water sport ever,” explained Olivia. “You can foil in any conditions, you don’t need big waves or strong wind. You can go out on a lake, on a river, and in the sea of course. There are so many disciplines and so many ways to enjoy the sport.I like this sport because you can never be lazy with it.”

 

It was a long but productive day, and the athletes managed to make the most of the no-wind situation, and enjoy the conditions that Tarifa dished up. 

Tomorrow will be the last day of competition, and we will be crowning our new 2021 Wingfoil World Champions. The skipper’s meeting has been called for  8am with the first possible start at 8.30am.
