European Freestyle Pro Tour: showcasing the best windsurfers of the Old Continent | Photo: EFPT

The 2016 European Freestyle Pro Tour (EFPT) calendar has been released.

It's definitely one of the most important professional windsurfing circuits of the Old Continent. The EFPT was founded in 2003 and, since then, it has confirmed many up-and-coming talents.

In 2016, Europe's best freestyle windsurfers will discuss the title in six stages: Podersdorf (Austria), Naxos (Greece), Lanzarote (Spain), Peljesac (Croatia), Brouwersdam (Holland), and Six Fours Les Plages (France).

Amado Vrieswijk, the 2015 EFPT champion, and Adams Sims, the 2015 EFPT Tow-In champions, will try to defend their titles, but there will be windsurfers like Adrien Bosson and Riccardo Marca in the fight for the top spot.

Only sailors with a valid European passport are eligible to win the EFPT title. The 2016 European Freestyle Pro Tour kicks off May 5th, in Austria.
