The GWA are delighted to be back in Tarifa for the penultimate wingfoil event of the 2022 season, where 48 men and 15 women have registered to participate in this pure Surf-Freestyle event. The forecast looks very promising for the coming days, and the levante wind will certainly allow the GWA athletes to put on a show for the Tarifa Wing Pro.
The competition today commenced with women’s rounds 1 to 3, followed by half of men’s round 1.
“We will be judging a pure freestyle format for this event,” explained Head Judge Mallory de la Villemarqué. “We are looking for technical tricks, to be performed with good height and amplitude. We want to see good speed entering and exiting the tricks. Clean landings will also be an extremely important part of the scoring.”
