About Bol, Brac:

Brac is situated between islands Solta and Hvar and it's the biggest middle Dalmatian island with 395 km2 of space. With its unspoiled nature, beautiful beaches, cultural and historical attractions, and well developed tourist and sport offers, Bol is one of the best known tourist destinations in Croatia.

This beautiful island is just about an hour away by boat from the city of Split, which is the second biggest Croatian city and well connected with the rest of Europe. Brac also has its own airport, enabling you to get to Bol really fast and conveniently and spend beautiful holidays.

The Island of Brac is characterized by a very favourable climate, mild, mostly moist winters and dry, hot and sunny summers. Local and seasonal winds also help maintain the favourable climate. Local wind from the west makes life easier in hot summer days, and makes Bol a paradise for windsurfers.

The Upcoming European Slalom Championship event is organised by Zoo Station Bol in co-operation with the JK Podstrana and Croatian Windsurfing Association.

A few words from the main event Organiser
"MR TONI":

1. About Events

The first event organized by Zoo Station was back in 1999, that was slalom on classic 8 but 1 vs 1 concept. The event was a great success and was very attractive for watching because you have only 2 riders facing each other on the course area and spectators could be part of the action without questioning "what is going on?" In the end the event was really great but for that kind of event you need a great wind to accomplish a successful day with 40 competitors.

Since than we organized 7 national Croatian championships in either freestyle or slalom
and in 2004 we did a PWA qualifier in freestyle but unfortunately it was a windless event.

2.The Idea

Basically I want that Zoo Station center becomes a spot on the map of slalom competitions.

Our best choice was to host an IFCA event because the venue is great and so are the conditions, also with such an event we would like to take a step ahead from national events.

On previous events we already had some top riders such as Pierre Mortefon, Finian Maynard, Chris Pressler, Tine Slabe and many more  . . .
So the idea was let's try with a continental level and maybe a worlds in the near future.
 
3.Mission

Is to have a recognizable event that both competitors and visitors enjoy visiting.

We wish to get a nice feed back from people after their departure with a smile while thinking about the event. We believe that such expressions are the key points of this great sport we all share.

4.Expectations

We look forward to some nice windy days and big battles on the race course during the competition days, including some nice relaxing time on the shore with good music and cold drinks.

5.You're invited because:

You should come and see a great windsurfing destination with breathtaking views, come and be part of it and of course show us your skills.
 
A special thanks to
Our local government of Bol, Ozujsko and Blue Sun Hotels Bol
