The world's best young guns will ride for glory at the 2015 International Surfing Association (ISA) World Junior Surfing Championship, to be run in Oceanside, California, between October 11th-18th.
Tom Curren, Gabriel Medina, Julian Wilson, Jordy Smith, Alejo Muniz, Filipe Toledo, Owen Wright, Stephanie Gilmore, Sally Fitzgibbons, Laura Enever and Tyler Wright have won gold medals at ISA World Junior event.
Once again, boys and girls will compete across four divisions, as well as in two team divisions for an Aloha Cup and overall champion trophy. Who will raise the national flags?
"We are proud to bring together the absolute best junior surfers from around the world to compete in this ISA World Championship. This is more than just a competition; this is an opportunity for a sneak peek at the future of surfing," states Fernando Aguerre, president of the ISA.
The 2015 ISA World Junior Surfing Championship will be contested at Oceanside. The spot receives northwest, west and southwest swells, and it is considered one of the most consistent beach breaks in Southern California.
Junior surfers should expect sandbars moving and shifting along shore, but there are basically wave everywhere near, especially on the north end at the harbor's north and south jetties, and on both sides of the pier.
