We are excited to release the tour-calendar for 2019. After an extremely successful 2018 with eight events and 88.000, - prize-money in total, we are happy to announce that we will step it up again in 2019.

The season will be opened in the end of April at the famous Surf World Cup in Neusiedl am See, Austria with a tow-in only event to wow the thousands of spectators who visit this event year by year.

Next up will be the first freestyle event of the season, the EFPT Las Dunas in Costa Brava - organised by Fase Wind from the 21st - 26th of May. After unlucky weather conditions in 2018 and no official result for the freestyle competition, we cannot wait to see the place delivering for the pro men and EFPT juniors! With 15.000,- prize-money up for grabs and a flawless organisation, this event promises to be one of our highlights this year.

The third stop will take the EFPT and its riders to a new spot on tour - Vieste, located in the south-east of Italy. This two star event will be the comeback of the European Tour to Italy's mainland, starting at the 30th of May. Crew and riders will get used to the Italian culture and hospitality, as the next stage will be held in Sicily right afterward. With 15.000,- prize-money and more than 300 days of wind per year, expectations are high to see the pro fleet in an exciting battle for the title of the King of Sicily'.

Organising the EFPT Matas Blancas for the first time in 2018, the organisation team around EFPT team member Davide Zilli, managed to step it up for this year and upgraded the one star to a three star event, to launch our annual Canaries tour on Fuerteventura between the 27th and 30th of June. Once again the EFPT juniors will get the chance to compete alongside the pro fleet in the second junior event of 2019.

Just a few days after awarding the winner of the EFPT stop in Fuerteventura, the three star event in Lanzarote will kick off. With more than 90% chance for wind and waves, this tour-stop is one of the riders favourites. We are looking forward to return to the shores of Costa Teguise for the 5th time and to also see an official EFPT juniors competition alongside the pro division.

After a small break in July, the first ever EFPT event in Egypt will be staged in El Gouna at the Elements Watersport Station from the 15th - 18th August, with the categories once again being the pro men and juniors. El Gouna, which is known to be the Venice of the Orient' is located about 30 km South of Hurghada and delivers great conditions for windsurfing throughout the whole year.

We will break up the freestyle only competitions with another tow-in show at the Vanora Engadinwind by Dakine at lake Silvaplana, Switzerland. After a fine tow-in only competition in 2018, the EFPT riders will again be invited to throw their best tricks in front of the most stunning backdrops of mountains higher than 3.000 meters in the turquoise water of this Swiss lake.

In early September, Denmark will be the place for Europe's freestyle elite, with a four star event being incorporated into the popular Waterz' Festival in Hvide Sande. The shores of the country that are already well known due to the PWA wave competitions, will finally become the playground for some of the best freestylers worldwide, who will compete in the disciplines freestyle and tow-in.

The final international event of the year and the big EFPT final will be once again the DAM-X in Brouwersdam, Holland. During event period of the 9th - 13th of October, the Zeil- and Surfcentrum Brouwersdam will be the location where the 2019 EFPT champion will be crowned alongside the women's, juniors and tow-in champions. We are delighted to be able to finish what promises to be an amazing season, at this fantastic event.

10 events - 8 countries - 108.000,- prize-money. - 2019 - We are ready!
