Europe's Top Windsurfers Make Waves in Costa Teguise

The European Freestyle World Tour splashes down in Costa Teguise next week from July 8th to 12th, showcasing the skills of some of the continent’s most revered riders.

Freestyle is just one of a number of separate disciplines within the world of windsurfing and is also widely regarded as the showiest and most dramatic, making it an ideal spectator sport. Competitors dig deep into their repertoires to pull off the maximum amount of stunts within a fixed time period, with overall creativity along with both the quality and quantity of tricks contributing to their overall score. Certain moves carry high scores, so watch out for tricks such as Double Forward Loops, The Funnel, Shaka and Burner. And you can also check out the official EFPT video from 2014 to whet your appetite for this year’s event.

 

All of the action will be taking place on Playa Cucharas in the heart of the resort as the current European Free style Champion Steven van Broeckhoeven battles to hold onto his crown.
