Fortaleza, Brazil has been the ideal location for this second edition of the GKA Hydrofoil Freestyle World Championship 2021.
This afternoon, our event winners, and our new World Champion, were crowned in front of the Fortaleza crowds.  The Hydrofoil Freestyle disciple is rapidly growing, and there is no better location to showcase its rapid evolution than here in Fortaleza, Brazil. The podium took place in front of the crowds to bring this week of Superfoil Brazil to a close. The final results for this event are:

Men:

1st Charles Brodel (FRA)

2nd Maxime Desjardins (FRA)

3rd Robin Steward (USA)

 

Women: 

1st Maike Elise Mueller (DEU)

2nd Kylie Zarmati (USA)

3rd Samuela Mule (ITA)

 

We would once again like to thank all of the organizers, athletes, and crew for making this event such a success, and we look forward to returning next year for another Superfoil Brazil celebration.
