GWA Wingfoil World Tour Brazil 2022 | Day Two Highlights

18th November 2022

Tagged: ,


For the second day of the Copa Kitley GWA Wingfoil World Cup Brazil, wind and waves were at the rendezvous! Although these conditions were changing throughout the day, the riders were able to enjoy under the Taiba sun and to send ever higher tricks and surf ever longer waves.
For this 5th and last stage of the GWA season, the Surf-Freestyle heats continued on this day 2, always with the same scoring criteria: the 2 best waves and the best freestyle trick taken into account. Men’s Round 3 and 4 took place in the first part of the day, before being followed by Women’s Round 1. If among the women it was no surprise that the favorites (Nia Suardiaz, Flora Artzner, Bowien van der Linden) and the already World Champion Paula Novotna qualified directly for Round 3… among the men, there was twists!¬†

The current number 1 in the ranking Gollito Estredo was eliminated by Clément Hamon, while Bastien Escofet took out Kauli Seadi and Hugo Marin beat Christopher McDonald! The French team is therefore in very good shape, since 7 of the 8 qualified for the quarter-finals are French!

The elimination of Gollito Estredo opens a big door to the title of World Champion 2022 for Malo Guénolé: if Malo reaches the final (and therefore finishes second or first in the competition), he will be the new Surf-Freestyle World Champion 2022! But if he finishes 3rd or lower, the title goes to Gollito.

The action continues today: don’t miss the video livestream to see the outcome!
