Premantura (Croatia) once again plays host to the IFCA Pro Kids, Junior and Youth Freestyle European Championships and takes place from October 29th to November 2nd. Premantura is the southernmost village of the Istrian peninsula and is therefore open to absolutely all the winds that blow in the northern Adriatic.


16 kids travelled to Premantura to take part in the event and  we saw already the first result. Nicolo Tagliafico from Sardinia (Italy), won the U15 Single Elimination in front of Mats Moyson from Belgium and Jan Halej from Slowenia.
