The Mondial du Vent kicked off with a bang as strong Tramontana winds swept across the competition venue, allowing us to run the competition from sunrise to sunset on the first day. We completed the women’s Surf-Freestyle division, and made it to the men’s finals, but the wind dropped and we were unable to finish the men’s division. As a result, the final results for the men’s Surf-Freestyle saw a joint first place for our two finalists, Alan Fedit and Xavi Corr, and a joint third place for Balz Muller and Axel Gerard.
The rest of the week was met with light winds, which allowed us focus on the Freefly-Slalom discipline. Despite the challenging conditions, we managed to complete two full eliminations for the men and three for the women. It was a true showcase of talent, skill, and perseverance from all the participants, and we couldn’t have been more thrilled with the results.
