Global Wingsports Association (GWA) is born!
In the past years, the watersports world has witnessed the birth of a new sport: wing-foiling, also known as wing-surfing or wing-boarding. Wing-foiling has attracted a huge number of fans and practitioners in a short period of time because of its accessibility, ease of use and steep learning curve, and is now one of the fastest-growing segments of watersports worldwide.
We are proud to introduce the Global Wingsports Association, the world’s first international wingsports association with the aim to provide one hub for all wing-related matters: representation for brands members, competitive athletes and recreational athletes as well as information for the interested public.
To celebrate its official launch on 16th August 2020, the GWA has chosen the prestigious Engadinwind event at Lake Silvaplana in Switzerland. Engadinwind is one of the watersports events with the richest history in Europe, and the perfect opportunity for the Global Wingsports Association to present itself to the world for the first time.
But the event has even more in store for the wing community this year: the GWA will co-host multi-discipline wing competitions at Engadinwind on 16th and 17th August, with wing races and wing-freestyle contests on both days.
