Surfing Australia has announced the creation of the Subway Summer Surf Series, a 13-event competition to showcase the best male and female surfers in the Under 16 and 18 age divisions.
The contest will fill a competition void which exists at a crucial point in the development of Australia's leading junior surfers, as they progress from the Vegemite SurfGroms program, onto the Wahu Surfer Groms Comps, into the Subway Summer Surf Series, followed by the Australian Boardriders Battle.
Laura Enever and Joel Parkinson are the ambassadors of the Subway Summer Surf Series. They will inspire young Australians to be healthy and active.
"All the success I've had at an elite level has come from surfing junior events when I was younger. It'll be great to watch some future world champs in action this summer," underlines Parkinson.
Each event is expected to attract as many as 100 surfers vying for the top honour. The male and female winners from the Under 18 divisions of each event in the series will be invited to attend a three-day Subway Surf Camp at the Hurley Surfing Australia High Performance Centre at Casuarina.
