At the beginning of may the Surfworldcup will start again. This year three events will take place at Lake Neusiedler! Especially the EFPT Special Event will be very interesting and a lot of fun.

We will try to be there as much time as possible to catch some great footage.#
5th – 10th May

This event is the first stop of the PWA Slalom Tour with all the stars like Antoine Albeau, Björn Dunkerbeck, Kev Pritchard or the Moussilmani bros.
