Whilst the whole EFPT crew have been very busy at the event in Austria, also our partners in Sigri, Greece have been working hard on the stop of the tour which they will stage from the 10th to the 12th of August. Marcel Simon, who is organising the event, put a lot of effort in it over the last few months. His dedication paid off and he managed to get more and more people and companies involved to support the event.
The energy drink giant Red Bull got hooked up by Marcel and his team recently. Supporting the biggest ideas, shows and events in the extreme sport world and beyond. It is not very surprising that the Red Bull marketing department jumped on board, after the presentation of the event. The brand promised to provide a Red Bull truck with a huge sound system to guarantee the right music for the action happening both on and off the water. Furthermore, they will supply the center with buoys to mark the heat area and the riders with a continuous stream of free energy drinks.
As important as it is to activate the spirit and body, as the Red Bull slogan says, it takes a bit more to grow wings and fly even higher if you are a professional in your sport. Ask any health coach or sports scientist, and they will all tell you that nutrition in sport is highly important. So at Sigri they have decided that not only the quantity but also the quality matters. This is why 'Ol eve', a family business and local producer of Greece delicatessens and top quality regional produce decided to step on board and help support the EFPT '3Style Area Cup' in Sigri. The owner of 'Ol eve' say: 'We are dedicated to wellness, health, education, sustainability and growth. (…) Our mission is to offer high quality natural and pure products, rich in nutritional properties, to provide our customers a healthy choice for their body and mind.'

The German holiday provider for windsurfing, kiting and scuba diving 'Sun and Fun' also became one of the event's high representative sponsors. As the travel agency is promoting Sigri as the secret choice of windsurfers, due to it's wind guarantee in the months from April to October, it seems logical that they wish to make the spot more accessable for the windsurfing world.

The team of the Sigri Surfcenter has already started preparing the center in the beginning of April and Marcel sent us some shots of his latest windsurfing sessions. It looks crazy windy and an amazing spot for the European Freestyle Pro Tour! Riders, don't forget to make your pre-registration for the event!
See you in Sigri!
