A little bit different atmosphere, event on its own and have as much fun as possible. These are the main reasons why we decided to create the Horsefeathers Kids Snowboard Tour at the first point. Of course, everything for kids only. And we couldn’t do better. Thanks to

We already hosted two events this season in Spindleruv Mlyn and Destne v Orlickych horach. It was epic to see so much talent already! The third event will hold a place in Buková hora, Czech Republic. Pretty interesting time is waiting for all, who are planning to attend. During the competition itself, there is gonna be also more fun going on around. After the third event, fourth and fifth one are gonna happen in Jested and Karlov pod Pradedem.

The event itself is a jam session where judges judge creativity, style, the difficulty of tricks and passion for riding. Winners are splitting points, where 1st. the place takes 1000 points, 2nd. place 800 points, 3rd. place 600 points, 4th. place 500 points, 5th. place 400 points and so on… Overall rating is gonna be counted from three best events you rode. That means, more events you ride, higher chance to win you have. If there are gonna be two riders with the same number of points, the winner is the one who rode more events.

You won your category last year. Do you have some special memories? Are you attending this year as well?
I was super excited about winning the last year tour! I am not sure about this year, depends on where we are gonna be that time. We are going to travel a lot in Austria.

You won couple of events already. Which one is your “best” until now?
I definitely loved winning the Välley Rälley event in Austria this year, where I won a 1st. place in my category while being the youngest, and finished 2nd overall!
