GKA Hydrofoil Freestyle World Cup Brazil Podium


Fortaleza, Brazil has been the ideal location for this second edition of the GKA Hydrofoil Freestyle World Championship 2021. On Sunday afternoon, our event winners, and our new World Champions, 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.

On Sunday afternoon, we crowned the Hydrofoil Freestyle World Champions only in the Men’s division. As there are only four women registered to compete at this event, they did not compete for a World Championship title, as that requires a minimum of six participants.
