Vanora Engadinwind by Dakine

We are happy to announce that the EFPT tow-in at the Vanora Engadinwind by Dakine 2020 at lake Silvaplana is officially confirmed! Permissions and fundings were secured and the organisation for the event with the most beautiful location is under way. It's amazing to see the Engadinwind grow year by year and also this time, the organisation team around Christian Müller will not fail to impress.

Apart from the EFPT tow-in, where every freestyle rider who wishes to compete may enter, the Engadinwind 2020 will stage the Formula Foil Worl Championship, the Foil Freestyle World Championship, the famous Engadin Surf and Kite Marathon as well as the 2020 IQ Foil European Championship, a discipline that we'll also see in the Olympics in the future.

We are looking forward to return to the most impressive landscapes on tour and to crown the Kings and Queens of the mountain from the 20th - 23rd of August.

EFPT El Gouna

After monitoring the situation in Egypt due to the COVID-19 pandemic and checking back and forth with the organisation team on site, the decision has been made to postpone the event to 2021. Beaches in Egypt are currently only open for private purposes, the event-ban however is still upright with no profound changes in sight. The Element Watersports Center is looking forward to host the EFPT riders and crew next year, a definit date will follow within the next weeks.

The remaining tourcalendar including the EFPT Lanzarote, the EFPT Spiaggia Lunga Vieste and the EFPT at the DAM-X in Brouwersdam will remain the same for now. The final decision if the events in Lanzarote and Italy can be staged in September 2020 will be made in the first week of July. The same applies for the final event in Holland, since the situation worldwide remains very unstable.
