Even the greatest of seasons have to come to an end eventually and we like to end ours at the DAM-X. The Zeil- and Surfcentrum Brouwersdam has been hosting the finale of the EFPT and the last international freestyle event of the season for many years now. Apart from the flawless organisation and a world-famous spot, the riders who are attending the competition year by year, make this tour-stop as special as it is. Whilst top freestylers like Adrien Bosson (Duotone/Fanatic), Steven Van Broeckhoven (Gunsails/JP), Tonky Frans (RRD/RRD) and many more will join the show, we are always delighted to meet new faces there. The past couple of years proved, that there seems to be no better place for this. For that reason we decided to present you some of the EFPT rookies, who will have their international debut at DAM-X 2018 and would like to make a little shout-out to all the freestylers out there: join us! We’ll be happy to meet you at our events!
