After a year of cancellations and no EFPT events, the Surf Opening in Neusiedl am See in Austria will kick off tomorrow. More than 20 riders are registered for the first freestyle battle of 2021.

€ 10.000,- prize money for mens freestyle and € 5.000.- for tow-in are up for grabs at the four day event, taking place from the 22nd through to the 25th of April 2021. With no international freestyle events in 2020, the riders are hungry to compete again and we may look forward to an exciting launch of this event season.

Since the public won’t be allowed to attend the Surf Opening this year, the action will be streamed LIVE by the team of AALVAA media. As far as we know live streamed will be the action of the top 16 riders and the tow-in qualification- and final rounds. All moderated by UK freestyler Sandy Clunas.

We will be at the event site from tomorrow on covering the event, too. So, if you have any questions for the riders or if you just want to say Hi, feel free to contact us via our Social Media channels or e-mail to

First possible start on day 1 will be at 11:30. The wind forecast looks not too bad and we will most probably see some freestyle action. Make sure to check back for some updates.
