The EFPT CEO Adam Sims announced the provisional FPT (Freestyle Pro Tour) calendar for 2022. It’s a big calendar, which will not only see contests in Europe (EFPT). The EFPT is expanding to other continents! 2022 will see the addition of the American Freestyle Pro Tour (AFPT) with two events on the provisional calendar: one at the beginning of the year in El Yaque, Venezuela, and one at the end of the year in Jericoacoara, Brazil. The creation of the AFPT, which is set to expand in 2023, requires an overseeing structure to combine with the EFPT, and so the FPT (Freestyle Pro Tour) is born.

The EFPT is our effort to create feeding tours for the PWA World Tour, whom we work closely together with, from multiple continents. It is not just about the grassroots of freestyle competitors, it’s also the grassroots of event organizers, a place where they can build their events up through a number of years and eventually become a potential World Tour stop should they be keen to do so. EFPT CEO Adam Sims

11 freestyle events are on the calendar and in total more than 160.000 € prize money will be distributed in 2022. 9 events will run competitions for women and men, what’s a positive sign. The events in Costa Brava and Rhodes will run junior competitions, too. 9 events will be freestyle windsurfing events. At Lake Neusiedl, Austria and in Geneva, Switzerland additional tow-in events are announced. The events in Engadin, Switzerland and Cyprus will be foil freestyle events only. Freestyle windsurfing still is the dominating discipline.

I’m excited for what 2022 has to hold, I can’t wait to see what this coming year has to offer, where our top guys and girls in this sport will take the level to, what new title will be crowned, new moves the will be stuck, who will walk away victorious and all the drama in-between. Of course this will all be wrapped up in the 2022 FPT Awards at the end of the year, so stack up your clips, your moves and submissions, because the entries for that are already open. EFPT CEO Adam Sims
