The DAMX event at Brouwersdam in the Netherlands was the penultimate event of the 2015 European Freestyle Pro Tour. For the first time in EFPT history a women’s event took place as well and saw Sarah-Quita Offringa winning the event in front of local Maaike Huvermann, Oda Johanne Brodholdt and Arrianne Aukes. In the men’s division it was Amado Vrieswijk winning the event in front of Dieter van der Eyken, Yentel Caers and Adrien Bosson.
The event was as one of our personal 2015 highlights, too. You feel the organizer loves the sport and they want to bring the windsurfing scene together. We spent almost a week at the beautiful remote place in Zeeland filming and editing the event clips. Tow-In is of course not our favourite discipline, but we witnessed some of the best Tow-In action ever and it was truly entertaining. It was a surprise for Dieter van der Eyken as well, but he showed the best moves and won the Tow-In competition in front of Antoine Albert and Adam Sims.
During the first day it was windy, but the wind disappeared quickly and only allowed a few heats. Luckily the wind came back from eastern direction, what forced the organizer to move the heat area outside and judge from a boat, on the final day of the event and allowed all riders to show their skills and finish the competition in the last sunlight.
We hope you enjoy watching the recap clip from the cool event.
