GWA World Champions
After three thrilling stops of the 2022 GWA Wingfoil World Cup, F-ONE team riders Flora
Artzner and Titouan Galea became World Champions in surf-slalom.
Surf-Slalom Women World Champion
Flora dominated the event throughout the season, winning the first two races in France and
Switzerland. She arrived in Taiba, Brazil, as the women’s tour leader and only needed to
finish fourth or better to claim the world title.
After two days of intense racing, she ultimately finished third in Brazil, which was enough for
her to become World Champion for the first time.
Flora also shone in the surf-freestyle event, winning the Brazil leg and finishing third overall.
“This world champion title is the cherry on top after an amazing season,” she said. “I couldn’t
have dreamed of anything better than to finish the year like this here in Brazil! I gave my all
to the sport, putting my job as an engineer on hold to prioritize training and competitions, and
to live this incredible adventure around wing foiling.”

Surf-Slalom Men World Champion
Titouan arrived in Taiba as the reigning World Champion and hungry to defend his title. He
started the season off well, comfortably winning the first leg of the World Cup in France and
finishing second at the next stop in Switzerland. Just like Flora, he was the tour leader and
favorite heading into the final leg in Brazil, but he still had to deliver when it counted.
The men’s surf-slalom heats were incredibly tight, as the athletes at the top of the
leaderboard were neck and neck to claim the crown. Showing grit and determination, Titouan
fought until the last elimination round. In the end, he ranked second at this event, which
earned him enough points to bring home the World title for the second year in a row, and his
“I had only one goal: to finish ahead of Francesco [Cappuzzo] to take the title,” he said. “I
finished first in the first two elimination rounds, but I caught a plastic bag in the next one and
placed 11th. It all came down to the last round. I had a bad start, but I recovered well to rank
fourth and just ahead of Francesco. I finish this competition second and won the world title.
Third one in the bag!”
