The seventh edition of The WindGames soared to new heights this weekend as the Empuriabrava Wind Tunnel played host to the crème de la crème of indoor skydiving talent. With over 180 flyers and 79 teams competing across six thrilling categories, the event was a whirlwind of excitement and adrenaline.

Organized by Windoor Empuriabrava with the invaluable support of the Castelló d’Empúries city council, the international indoor flight competition showcased not only staggering participation but also an unparalleled level of athleticism. As the points record of a Spanish team in the 4way FS category was shattered, it became abundantly clear that the Windoor Empuriabrava wind tunnel stands as a beacon of excellence on the global stage of indoor skydiving competitions.

The Papea1 team, comprised of flyers Óscar Marshal, JC González, Cristian Moltó, and Antonio Gómez, etched their names in the annals of history by amassing a remarkable 265 points. This feat, surpassing their own record set just last year at the Spanish Championship held in Windoor Barcelona, earned them a well-deserved spot to represent Spain at the upcoming world championship in Macau this April. Leader Óscar Marshal expressed his delight, noting that the competition sees continuous improvement year after year.

Vincent Van Laethem, director of The WindGames, expressed immense satisfaction with the results and the enthusiastic reception from the loyal Windoor audience. He hinted at the event’s return next year with an additional day of competition, promising even more thrills and spills.

Among the standout moments was the electrifying victory of the Fanatics duo, Landon Karaberis and the youthful James Rogers, in the 2Way Dynamic category. Their triumph came after a fiercely contested final against the formidable Spanish Dodos team, composed of Dani Gallego and Lewis Hard. Other notable winners included Mamma Mia in FS Spanish Promotion, Papea1 in FS Spanish Championship, Sofiya Korkhina in Freestyle Junior, James Rogers in Freestyle and Solo Speed, Kings of the Sky in 4Way Dynamic, VFS Windoor Bcn in VFS, and Aethers in VF.

The event drew distinguished guests, including Anna Massot, mayor, and Rafael Girón, sports councilor of Castelló d’Empúries, Pere Casellas, regional tourism advisor, José Javier Álvarez Castillejo, president of the Spanish Air Federation, and Paloma Granero, technical secretary of parachuting of the FAE. Their presence added prestige to an already thrilling affair, underscoring the significance of The WindGames on both a local and international scale.
