It's time again for your regular dose of Freestyle Windsurfing content!

In this newsletter we'll get you up to speed with the best action clips from December, catch up with Adrien Bosson about his newest video NOVEMBRE and share a couple of exciting dates related to our 2023 calendar as well as the FPT Awards. Scroll down and enjoy the latest features from the Freestyle Pro Tour.

Novembre

After claiming his maiden Freestyle World Title on the PWA, Frenchman Adrien Bosson (Fanatic/Duotone/MUF) returned home to enjoy his favourite season. Teaming up with Blue Koast Records, he captured the essence of November, which for him is an important time to cool down, reflect, and enjoy some well needed time for himself. The beaches are emptier, temperatures are lower and the wind gets stronger, providing for a perfect playground to look back on the past year. It comes as no surprise that Adrien spends most of his November time on the water, which was perfectly captured in his latest video. We caught up with Adrien to hear about the clip, and how is he is doing after a such a great year!

Freestyle Action Round Up - December

Of course Adrien's clip made it into this action round up, but what other clips did? Packed with videos, this roundup will take you all over the world. The FPT Awards submission deadline seems to have caused a bit of a production rush, meaning that December has been the month with the most quality freestyle videos released this year. In this roundup we collected all those videos for your viewing pleasure. We will catch up with George Grisley (AV-Boards), Lina Erpenstein (Severne Windsurfing), Oda Johanne Brodholt (Severne Windsurfing) and Lisa Kloster (Sailloft) about their winter training in Brasil. The latest moves from Antoine Albert (Goya Windsurfing) and Raphael Bauer (Starboard/Severne) will be displayed, while freestyle veteran Steven Van Broeckhoven (Starboard/GUNSAILS) takes us with him to Egypt.

FPT Awards and the 2023 Event Calendar

The FPT Awards submissions are closed, and the team is hard at work organizing the more than 100 submitted clips. The final show announcing all the winners and celebrating our sport will be taking place on the 31st of January. Before that though, we will kick off the 2023 season with our official event calendar announcement, coming on the 14th of January. Keep your eyes peeled for what is shaping up to be a season like no others. The announcement of the calendar will also kickstart the public vote associated with the FPT Awards. Make sure to follow our social channels to take part in deciding who will win some of the categories!
