Saturday 20th was the first day of the GKA Freestyle World Cup at the Mondial du Vent, blessed with bright sunshine but no wind. Sunday was cloudy with a veering light wind, so the competition remains on hold, but as we know, things change quickly here when the powerful Tramontane wind kicks-in.

The official Leucate event page has all the info you need, and is where you can find the livestream, the heat ladders and results once the action gets underway.
