The 2019 European Freestyle Pro Tour (EFPT) calendar has been released.
This year, the organization secured a prize money of €108,000 and will hold events in eight different venues.
The season will kick off with a tow-in only competition in Austria. Then, after a stop in Spain's Catalonia, the best freestyle windsurfers of the Old Continent will head to Italy for a new challenge in Sicily.
The International Windsurfing Tour (IWT) announced the introduction of equal prize money for male and female competitors.
The announcement takes full effect in the 2019 season and will award $50,000 overall to the eight best-ranked wave sailors.
The breakdown for both pro men and women goes as follows:
