2011 PacSun USA Surf Team: blondes prevail

Surfing America, the national governing body for surfing in the United States, is pleased to announce selection of the 2011 PacSun USA Surf Team has been completed.

Twenty one (21) of the very best under 18 year old surfers in the mainland United States will train together under the leadership of Head Coach Ian Cairns. Ultimately, only twelve of these Team members will be selected for the traveling team to the 2011 Quiksilver ISA World Junior Surfing Championships sometime next year.

“The 2011 PacSun USA Junior Team is young but includes many members of the 2010 New Zealand Bronze Medal Team,” said Ian Cairns, USA Surf Team Head Coach. “Believe me, we were not happy with our performance in New Zealand and are anxious to get right back at the Hawaiians and Aussies.”
