EFPT to host Rookie Camps 2021

From 2021 onwards, the EFPT will organise and host rookie camps prior to as many EFPT events on the calendar as possible. The past years and the high attendance of juniors entering the the U16 and U18 division, made it even more obvious that there are in fact numerous young freestylers out there.

However, we would not only like to address the kids/juniors who already entered an EFPT competition, but the ones who are already training freestyle but had to face too many questions and hurdles in order to enroll in an international competition. Those boys and girls all over the world have a huge potential, they represent the future of the sport and will certainly benefit from a professional coaching to take their skills to the next level.

With the EFPT Rookie Camps, the EFPT and their supporting brands, will host two to three days of freestyle and competition training before the official events will kick off. We address all freestylers, boys and girls of the age 18 and under to join our pro coaches on site and train tactics, heats, moves and meet the pros for Q & As.

The headcoach at every camp will be top German freestyler Julian Wiemar (Starboard / Severne). Julian might be joined by another EFPT pro rider of the respective region the camp takes place at, depending on the number of attendees.

EFPT Rookies Camp Lake Neusiedl, Austria (U18)

The first ever EFPT rookies Camp will take place at lake Neusiedl, on the 20th and 21st of April, prior the first EFPT freestyle event of the season: the Surf Opening in Neusiedl am See.

Julian Wiemar states: 'Do you want to learn more about freestyle windsurfing contests, how to compete, and you'd like to push yourself on the water with a group of other rookies? Come and join our first official Rookie Camp and get ready and confident for your first international competitions.'
