The 22nd edition of the Défi Wind has just come to an end in Gruissan, a place where windsurfers from all over the world gathered for 4 days of competition and celebration of the sport, despite the cruel absence of the Tramontane.

After the Défi Kite and the Défi Wing, the Défi Wind took over with its undeniable charm, despite the notable absence of wind. Although the Tramontane made itself scarce, forcing competitors to make do with 2 funny races in light wind, the general enthusiasm never wavered.
The magic of the Défi Wind lies in its incomparable atmosphere, where amateurs rub shoulders with the pros in a spirit of camaraderie and sharing. There were many convivial moments, punctuated by autograph sessions and exchanges between renowned riders and enthusiasts. Despite the vagaries of the weather, the Défi Wind once again proved its resilience and its power to bring the windsurfing community together. This historic edition, which recorded a record number of 1500 participants, also fulfilled the expectations of visitors ashore.

The sunny days in Gruissan were punctuated by an exhibitor village worthy of the event, featuring the biggest brands in the windsurfing industry, autograph sessions with the champions, brand presentations and prize draws. As for the evenings, they went on well into the night, in an electric atmosphere of passion and excitement.
Beyond the competition, the Défi Wind 2024 proved once again that it was much more than just a sporting event, but a real catalyst for the passion for windsurfing, bringing together families of riders and strengthening the bonds within this community devoted to the sport.
