Frenchmen Titouan Galea and Flora Artzner take victory in surf slalom


After four action-packed days in Taiba at the Copa Kitley GWA Wingfoil World Cup Brazil, the decisive heats in the surf slalom competition were on the agenda. Although the mathematical scenarios were complicated, the title would belong to tour leader Titouan Galea (FRA) if he could leave his nearest rival Francesco Cappuzzo (ITA) behind. In the end, Titouan Galea (FRA) crossed the finish line in fourth place ahead of Francesco Cappuzzo to take the win! In the women's race, Nina Suardiaz (ESP) had done all she could the day before with six consecutive wins to catch up with women's tour leader Flora Artzner (FRA), who only needed to finish fourth or better in this race to win her first title. In the last race the Frenchwoman got a good start but was chased by Suardiaz. At the end of the downwind leg, Suardiaz was in the lead again, but Artzner actually crossed the finish line in fourth place, which gave her third overall here in Brazil and first at the end of the season. Nia Suardiaz won the race hands down, but Flora Artzner is the 2022 GWA Wingfoil Surf Slalom World Champion!
