Slow start at the 2023 EFPT Vieste – Day 1

June 7th, 2023

The first day of the 2023 EFPT in Vieste saw little action as the conditions kept everyone on the edge of their seats. With one Foilstyle heat sailed and cancelled, riders are now amped for the better conditions forecasted in the next few days. Tigo Kort (JP/NeilPryde) and Lucie Honegger (Severne) faced off for a couple of minutes, but despite Kort’s impressive Culo, the judges decided to cancel the heat due to the deteriorating conditions. The Spiaggia Lunga beach in Vieste therefore saw some pump foil action and relaxing for the rest of the day. Make sure to watch the daily wrap up show below to get some insights from Dieter Van der Eyken (Severne) and Lisa Kloster (MB-Boards/Sailloft) about this exciting event in Italy, and stay tuned for the live-shows tomorrow!


We will be live again on tomorrow at 8:30 AM with a morning show to then hopefully transition straight into the Foilstyle heats again! The action will be live for as long as the wind allows, to then close the day with a Wrap Up show at 7:00 PM. Make sure to tune in for some fresh interviews, exciting event features and new insights on the world of Freestyle Windsurfing!
