GWA Wingfoil Race Class Equipment Regulations

All equipment that is raced is production equipment with a minimum run of 50 pieces and a set cut off date for production and all details are in the Class Rules. This enables all riders to compete on more of an even budget and means anyone can compete as the equipment is easily available. If any equipment is damaged it can be repaired or replaced as long as it is registered. Each piece of equipment will have a serial number on it.
