The most talented bodyboarders of the Old Continent are will once again compete for titles and glory. The European Tour of Bodyboard celebrates its 20th anniversary.

The 2018 European Tour of Bodyboard (ETB) schedule continues to expand. This year, all men's, women's, and junior divisions will have extra dates.

Alex Uranga, Joana Schenker, and Rodrigo Lopes will be looking forward to defending their 2017 trophies, but their opponents are already warming up and getting ready for the competitive season.

Male and junior athletes will compete in five stages held in four different countries: Portugal, France, Spain, and Morocco. Female riders have four stops in three nations.

The first event of the European bodyboarding season is the Caparica Bodyboard Pro, which kicks off March 22, at Costa de Caparica, in Portugal.

The 2018 ETB Tour could end with the Galdar BB Pro, in the Canary Islands, but are still two additional stages that may get the green light.

Pierre-Louis Costes remains the most victorious rider in the history of the European Tour of Bodyboard. The French athlete won four European titles in 2012, 2013, 2014, and 2015.
