World Tour finals are on next week, plus QS events in Brazil, Hong Kong and South Africa to round off the year!

Copa Kitley GWA Wingfoil World Cup Taiba 2022

The fifth and final event of the GWA Wingfoil World Tour season is at Taiba, Ceara state in Brazil, 16 - 20th November. Both Surf-Freestyle and Surf-Slalom disciplines will run. Only Paula Novotna has sealed the deal on the women's Surf-Freestyle world title, so there's still much to decide in the 2022 championships!

The men's Surf-Freestyle is particularly open, after we've seen four different winners from the previous four events this season!
