Wesley Brito is the GWA Wave World Champion 2023, Nia Suardiaz 2nd!
Wesley Brito won the first-ever world title in the Wave discipline on the GWA Wing Foil World Tour in Dakhla, Morocco!
Wesley won the discipline’s first stop of three in Cape Verde and came from behind in his heats to secure the vital wins to take the coveted crown at Dakhla’s Westpoint.
It definitely was a dream to come true for him (and us as sponsor) - his first ever wave world title!
Nia Suardiaz finished 3rd in the event which means she is the Wave Vice World Champion - the 3rd podium in the pocket for the 16 year young girl from Germany/Spain this year as she already won two titles at the previous event in Denmark: GWA World Champ Surf-Freestyle & FreeFly-Slalom!

Congratulations Wesley & well deserved - so stoked for you!
»“It’s the best thing that ever happened to me, so I’m feeling really, really great. I always wanted to compete in the waves and finally this year it was decided to split waves from freestyle. I live in Cape Verde where we have lots of waves, so I can train a lot and was really looking forward to this chance.”«
