After providing a banging start to the 2023 season, the Freestyle Pro Tour event is back in Cape Town for 2024! An on forecast event, from the 5th to the 15th of February, will see the crowning of the first official FreestyleWave champion in this 5* Men’s and Women’s event. The single elimination will take place at the Milnerton Aquatic Club, whereas the double elimination will be held in the waves at Doodles. The event will also be home to the official 2023 FPT Awards Show, taking place on the 4th of February simultaneous to the event’s registration evening. Check out the highlight video from last year to see what you can expect!
The 2023 premiere edition of the event saw some of the most radical action ever witnessed, with a mix of both Freestylers and Wave sailors entering. Marc Pare (Duotone Windsurfing) won the event, surprising everyone with his Freestyle moves on the lake, to then continue on into the waves and dominate with his insane Double Air moves. The day of the event saw some of the strongest winds of that season in Cape Town, something that the FPT hopes to repeat for 2024 thanks to the 10 day waiting period.
As with all on forecast events, the FPT Crew and local riders will be closely monitoring conditions and will give a green light 72 hours prior to the event. Join the whatsapp group with all event info and to stay up to date HERE.
