FreeWing Dream Team rider Xavi Corr unlocks new possibilities with the recently released AIR v3 – scoring the first perfect 10 at any GWA Freestyle competition and takes home a joint first place. The young Spanish rider from Tarifa stole the show, launching some big scoring front flip and backflip manoeuvres — however it was the innovation multiplier — which GWA committee introduced at this event to encourage new tricks — that he utilised to his advantage and get the edge over his competitors.
Xavi achieved these phenomenal results riding on the new AIR v3, the all-round performance wing that has now showcased that it is an incredible freestyle wing, allowing Xavi to unlock new tricks on its debut freestyle event.
Crowning the winners at the GWA Wingfoil World Cup in Leucate, France
Despite the crew and athletes remaining on standby, the wind did not materialise for the final day of competition in Leucate.
The course was set, the riders were ready, but the conditions were unsuitable for competition on our final day in France. This means that the Surf-Freestyle finals were unfortunately not run, meaning the final results would be a joint first place for the two finalists, Alan Fedit (France) and FreeWing team rider Xavi Corr (Spain) and a joint 3rd place for Balz Muller and Axel Gerard.
The final results for the men’s Surf-Freestyle discipline are:
1st Alan Fedit 🇩🇪 and Xavi Corr 🇪🇸
3rd Balz Muller 🇨🇭 and Axel Gerard 🇫🇷
