The legendary waves of Cape Verde are set to be the stage for the opening round of the Wave discipline on the GWA Wingfoil World Tour, kick-starting the 2024 season.

Reigning GWA Wave world champions, Cape Verde's Wesley Brito and the US's Moona Whyte, are slated to open the defence of the titles they clinched in the ground-breaking discipline's first year in 2023.

The World Tour is again scheduled to hold three wave events, on three continents, to decide who will wear the 2024 crowns. The iconic right-hand point break of Ponta Preta, on Sal island, hosted last year's event, when the wingfoilers proved they could handle its challenging and hollow wave. But if conditions dictate, this year's contest might also be held at Kite Beach, on the east side of the island.

Stay updated on the GWA Wingfoil World Cup in Sal, Cape Verde by following the live stream and live scoring on the GWA website. For all the competition updates and behind-the-scenes moments, check out Instagram.
