Leonardo Fioravanti is the 2013 junior surfing vice-world champion! After a busy week in Nicaragua, fighting against the world's best juniors in the under-16 category, Leo made his way through to the final without loosing a single heat. Unfortunately, he missed the gold medal by only 0.17pts and let australian Jacob Wilcox win the final.
We hope next year will be the one for Leo in the under-18 category!
