- Surf-Freestyle. It is a format of expression where competitors move around the body of water to ride waves or swells and perform acrobatic movements, aerial figures and jumps using the conditions. The contest takes place in the form of an eliminatory table by groups of 8 riders maximum, to ultimately retain only 2 finalists.
- The race. It is a race. All the competitors follow the same course with a starting line and a finishing line, materialized by buoys or boats.
The race combines jibes (changes of direction back to the wind), tacks (change of direction facing the wind) and at times pumping (to take off as quickly as possible on the foil and accelerate) or even surf without
assistance of the kite when the competitors are carried by the swell.
The latest in board sports straight from Hawaii, halfway between
kitesurfing and windsurfing, since 2020 Wingfoil has had an association, the Global Wingsports ssociation (GWA) based in Germany, which aims to promote Wingfoil and this year launched a world cup in 4 stages, including 2 are coming up: Dakhla (Morocco) from November 2 to 6 / Fortaleza
(Brazil) at the end of November.
Note that a good part of the riders who will go to the Dakhla event have
planned to go through Carro so as not to miss the Carro Wing Foil Classic!
