European Freestyle Pro Tour: you don't need light to show off

The 2014 European Freestyle Pro Tour (EFPT) will kick off at Podersdorf, in Austria, on the 25th April.

After hosting the Chiemsee European Tow-In Championship for two years in a row, the organiser of the Surf Worldcup in Podersdorf, Austria decided to bring back the EFPT freestyle discipline to where the tour has been originally founded more than 10 years ago.

It will be the first stage of the 2014 season. This time, riders will be even more in the center of public and media attention. There will be windsurfing test areas and a total of 26,000 euros in prize money.

In May, the 2014 European Freestyle Pro Tour heads for the Aqualeto Cup, in Eysk, Russia. Riders will be competing for a total prize money of 10,000 euros prize money in the Sea of Asov shores.

Then, the EFPT Lanzarote contest will take place two weeks before the PWA event, in Fuerteventura, and will certainly see a high involvement of top sailors and talented rookies.

The final of the 2014 European Freestyle Pro Tour will be held in Six Fours les Plages, where Fred Bosson, event organizer, has been growing his European Freestyle Expression, year by year.
