GWA Wingfoil World Cup 2024 – Sal (CPV)

Sal (CPV), 16th  - 25th February, 2024

The idyllic island of Sal is hosting the second GWA Wingfoil World Cup, kicking off the Wave discipline of the GWA Wingfoil World Tour. Set against the stunning backdrop of this picturesque paradise, this eagerly anticipated return stop offers two potential event locations, with both Ponta Preta and Kite Beach in the mix depending on conditions. The Wave Tour will once again hold three calls on three continents to determine who will wear the 2024 crowns. In the pure surfing discipline, athletes will be judged on their carving and commitment in the swell, as well as aerial maneuvers without using the power of the wing. The reigning GWA Wave World Champions, Wesley Brito of Cape Verde and Moona Whyte of the US, will be looking to defend their titles. Brito will be competing against a 22-man field from 11 countries around the world. They include Hugo Marin (FRA), the overall runner-up, and his compatriot Benoît Carpentier. Whyte has said she intends for the Cape Verde stop to be her only competition this year. That leaves runner-up Nia Suardiaz from Spain, who is only 16, with a shot at the crown in 2024.
