LAST YEAR’S WINNERS:
The 2021 Tarifa Wing Pro was a huge success and the GWA, was able to complete the full Surf-Freestyle discipline, and Surf-Slalom discipline and ended the day crowning our new GWA Champions.
It was an early start, with the crew and athletes ready on the beach by 7.30 am. The Levante wind started to blow, giving us 8 – 16 knots, and making for a kick-off to the day!
On the Surf-Freestyle side, the final was a major showdown between experienced waterman Balz Muller, and 15-year-old up-and-coming rider Riccardo Zorzi. Balz wasn’t messing around for the final, and locked down an 8.03 point Backflip to get started. Riccardo Zorzi was fully focused for his first-ever final, and he threw down some massive tricks, with incredible height and execution. His Frontside 7 scored him 7.5 points, and together with his 3 other high-scoring tricks, he took the win by less than one point from Balz Muller with Maxime Chabloz finishing in 3rd.
For the women, Bowien van der Linden managed to secure her victory with a solid showing followed by Olivia Piana in 2nd and Flora Artzner in 3rd.
In the Surf-Slalom discipline, Olivia Piana rode yet another confident race, showing focus and determination as she managed once again to hold on to her lead throughout the race and another win. This time it was Orane Ceris who stormed through in second place, followed by Bowien van der Linden.
For the men, Mathis Ghio finished in 1st, followed by Francesco Cappuzzo and Maxime Chabloz.
