Countries, including South Africa have selected their representatives for the ASP World Junior Tour and these surfers will now shift focus from local events to taking on the world’s best U 21 surfers as they campaign for the highly coveted World Junior Title.
Each ASP Region (North America, South America, Africa, Hawaii, Europe, Japan and Australasia) will send their top representatives to compete on the Tour, commencing with the Oakley ASP World Pro Junior – the first of three events that will decide the 2011 ASP World Junior Champions.
Local surfer Dylan Lightfoot has been selected for the South African team to compete in Bali. “I am super amped and am just going to take it heat by heat and hopefully get to the top”, said an excited Lightfoot.
Beau Emerton, former ASP World Tour campaigner and Oakley ASP World Pro Junior Contest Director is looking forward to another action packed first stop on the ASP World Junior Tour.
” I’m still dumbfounded by the performance level from last year ,” Emerton said. “I think some of the World Tour guys would have struggled to win some of those heats, so I can’t wait to see what goes down this time around. It’s going to a great event!”
The Oakley World Pro Junior Bali will run from October 3 – 14.
