On the first day in Pozo Izquierdo, the prevailing strong winds made it evident that the men’s division qualification for the new discipline, Big Air, should commence. The iconic spot of Pozo Izquierdo will serve as the venue for the crowning of the GWA Wingfoil World Champions in Big Air at the end of this week.
