The weekend was full of Wing Foil Race and Freestyle action. But not only on the water – also bringing the wing foil community together – was a big goal of the event.
On Saturday the wind conditions have been perfect for the race competition at the King of the Wing 2020. In the end Duotone / Fanatic rider Henning Nockel was leading the scoreboard.
For the freestyle competition on Sunday the wind was a bit moody. But the competitors still made the best out of it.
The wing foil community also had the chance to test new equipment from Duotone / Fanatic and Starboard / Airush. Perfect opportunity to give wing foiling a try, test the newest equipment or have a chat with the pros.
