Jamaica’s top surfers will take on the cream of the US East Coast opposition at the 2008 Jupiter Fall Classic surf contest on the 14, 15 and 16 November in Jupiter Beach Florida.
Jamaica’s world famous Wilmot Family will lead the charge with brothers Ishack, Inilek and Icah competing in the open division and their 11 year old brother Ivah in the junior division. Their sister Imani will compete in the women’s division.
Also included in the team are Jamaica’s 2 top under 18 surfers Shane Simmonds of Boston Bay Portland and Ackeam Phillips from Bull Bay St Andrew.
Top open competitor Luke Williams and National Masters Team surfers Michael Mair and Eugene Miller will round off the delegation.
The team will be making their third appearance at the annual contest where in 2006 Jamaican surfers finished in the money rounds in the open, junior and women’s divisions.
The trip this year as in ’05 and ‘06 is being sponsored by the Brandolini Foundation.
The US based Foundation was set up in loving memory of Lewis Brandolini IV who was a very close friend and supporter of Jamaica’s surf and skate scene up until his untimely death in May 2005.
