The final GKA Freestyle World Cup of the season is now complete, and yesterday in Cumbuco we crowned our new 2021 GKA Freestyle World Champions – Mikaili Sol and Arthur Guillebert. We took a moment to catch up with both of them to find out how it feels to finish the year on top.

“It feels quite surreal, to be honest. I’m just really happy that we have competitions back again, with a World Title. I’m feeling really excited about everything at the moment, it’s really motivating and it’s a great feeling. Maybe try and get 11 World titles.” Mikaili Sol

“I feel so happy, super stoked about my season this year! I’ve been in Tarifa, where I won. I’ve trained a lot in both disciplines, and I like how the sport is turning to the most versatile and complete rider, being able to ride well in both big air and pure freestyle. I think it’s great how we can change the judging criteria according to the wind conditions” Arthur Guillebert
