After the success of the first edition, the Torremolinos Wingfoil by Diputación de Málaga returns this year with important new features that consolidate the event internationally and among fans of this emerging specialty. The event goes up a level and for the first time will grant six direct places for the Wingfoil World Championship, while the Global Wingsports Association (GWA) has also chosen it as the venue for the Master World Championship. The test will take place again on the Costa Lago beach, although the organization has delayed the dates with respect to the first edition and will be held on June 3 and 4, with an alternative to the 10 and 11 of the same month in case of that the wind did not accompany. Just at that time of year the window opens for the best sailing conditions, with predominantly soft westerly winds and thermals ideal for wingfoil practice. In any case, what characterizes this sport is its versatility, since it can be practiced in different winds and even with waves for surfing. At the rider level, the presence of Marina Alabau, gold medalist at the London Olympic Games in 2012, two-time windsurfing world champion and five-time European champion, has already been confirmed. Nathan Berger, current GWA junior and under-14 world champion and World Cup champion in 2022, will also be in Torremolinos. Fabian Muhmenthaler, one of the best riders of the moment, will also compete in a test in which the presence is expected from other specialists from all over Spain. Participants who do not get a direct pass will obtain points for the GWA Qualifying Series, the qualification circuit prior to the main one. Fun Race Amateur The organization also wanted local amateurs to have their space among the professionals. To this end, an Amateur Fun Race championship will be held so that they can test their level during the days of the Torremolinos Wingfoil celebration. Weekend Wingfoil Expo The Torremolinos Wingfoil is preparing a great assembly in the Costa Lago area that will go beyond the competition. During all the days that the event lasts, visitors will find a great atmosphere in a limited area. Different brands related to the sector will participate in the Weekend Wingfoil Expo, where they will exhibit their products so that they can be tested by those interested in getting started in this sport. To complete this wide range of entertainment and competition, the organization will install a ‘wave’ ramp for practicing surfskate where classes will be taught free of charge.
