The second GWA Wingfoil World Tour event of the year is back and this week sees us in the iconic Swiss Alps for the Ensis Engadinwing by Dakine GWA Wingfoil World Cup – check out the Day 1 highlights video right here!

Surrounded by the breathtaking scenery of Silvaplana and St Moritz this is an event in which everyone is very eager to participate in both the Surf-Freestyle and Surf-Slalom disciplines that will run this week.

Tuesday morning began with 51 men and 11 women attending Riders Registration whilst we patiently waited for the thermal to kick in. No cloud to be seen, the sun was shining and with a light breeze from early on, we knew that an afternoon of competition was on the cards.

The famous thermal wind kicked in earlier than expected so it was full steam ahead to get the Womens Surf-Freestyle rounds underway and on the water with 10-11 hours worth of Surf-Freestyle to get through at this event across the men’s and women’s competitions.

Czech rider Paula Novotna put on a sublime performance from start to finish during day one of the GWA Wingfoil World Cup. Landing big tricks earned high scores from the judges in each of her heats and this is a well-deserved first title win for Paula who came off the water with a huge grin on her face!
