Tonky Frans steals the 2018 Surf Worldcup

Tonky Frans has taken out the first event of the 2018 European Freestyle Pro Tour (EFPT).

The windsurfer from Bonaire claimed the Surf Worldcup, in Neusiedl am See, Austria, after beating Sam Esteve in an exciting super final blessed by howling southerly winds.

The 20th anniversary year of the Austrian competition brought plenty of action into the local cold waters. Esteve and Frans were probably the most in-form sailors of the entire contest and fully deserved their spots in the decisive heats.
