Freestyle Youth Cup 2018

Freestyle Youth Cup 2018

Period: Apr 12 - Apr 15, 2018
Location: St Pierre la Mer, France

To understand the origin of the Junior World Cup Freestyle Kitesurfing we must return in 2002 to the creation of the first European Cup in the discipline. A competition devised and organized by SAINT kitesurfing school PIERRE SEA under the direction of Christophe HAMON and Stephen Jones. A championship that saw the birth of great champions Gisela PULIDO (ES), Sebastien Garat (FR) or Yuri ZOON (NL).

It brought together each year nearly 70 competitors from over 10 countries. The Junior European Cup Freestyle Kitesurfing remained the largest international event ever organized in number of participants.

Renewed for 12 years, it is in 2016 that everything changes! Building on its success the European competition became the Junior World Cup of Kitesurfing. Giving it unprecedented international dimension. For its first two editions in 2016 and 2017 the event has experienced an unprecedented boom: 80 participants, more than 20 nationalities and media impact worldwide!

The 2018 event takes place between the 12th and 15th of April, in St Pierre la Mer. For more details, please follow this link.
