EFPT Calendar 2019 – Update

Updated on April 11, 2019

On January 15, 2019 the European Freestyle Pro Tour (EFPT) released their 2019 calendar. It’s a big calendar: 6 freestyle windsurfing events in South of France, Spain, Italy, Fuerteventura, Lanzarote, Denmark and Netherlands and 4 tow-in events in Austria, Switzerland, Denmark and Netherlands. Unfortunately there is not a freestyle windsurfing event planned in Austria. After successful 20 years with windsurfing tow-in will be the remaining discipline in 2019.

In the meantime the El Gouna event in Egypt and the Sicily event are removed from the 2019 EFPT calendar and the freestyle windsurfing events are unfortunately reduced to 6.

Positive news are: The EFPT announced a prize-money raise for the EFPT event in Vieste, Italy. The event has been upgraded from € 7.500,- prize-money to € 10.000,- and will therefor be an official PWA qualifying event.

A total prize money of 86.000 € (86.000 € in 2018, 33.000 € in 2017, 18.000€ in 2016) will be distributed in 2019, what’s no increase compared to the 2018 season as long as the calendar stays like this. The EFPT again offers a great opportunity for juniors & pros to show their skills in freestyle events all around Europe.

The 2019 EFPT tour will start at the end of April in Austria with a tow-in event only, places are still available, and will see the final in Brouwersdam in the second week of October. We will see 8 events within a bit more than 5 months.

It’s nice to see 2 new additions to the tour plan for this year: one new event in Italy in Vieste, Gargano and one event in Denmark, Hvide Sande are new on the 2019 EFPT tour plan.

Brouwersdam will host the only event for ladies. There are additional junior events for Lanzarote announced. Fuerteventura and Brouwersdam will again host junior divisions in 2019.

There just aren‘t enough women who perform freestyle on a (semi-)professional level.

Great Tour! Will there be a PWA freestyle event in Austria again? The event is called surf Worldcup…
