It is time for the final events of the junior surfing programme in South Africa, and the last two events are set to take place in Kouga.

The first event is the Billabong Junior Series final at Seal Point in Cape St Francis from Friday, September 30, to Sunday, October 2. Always a massively popular event, the Billabong Junior Series is the oldest and biggest junior series in the country, and has manufactured successful pro surfers like Jordy Smith and Bianca Buitendag, to name a few.

The perfect waves at Seal Point, as well as the welcoming local community, always make this a very special event on the calendar. All the best junior surfers in the country will be in attendance.

Surfers like Crystal Hulett from St Francis Bay, and Sebastian Williams and Kirsty McGillivray from Jeffreys Bay will be in attendance, as well as the best junior surfers from all around the country.

The right-hand point-break of Seal Point will be the first venue, but should the conditions change dramatically there will be an option for the contest organisers to surf the Seal Point beach-break.

The following week sees the junior surfers move up to the Lower Point in Jeffreys Bay for the Billabong Junior Series presented by BOS. This is the biggest SA Champs event in the country, and is a massively popular event. Last year’s winners were Cape Town Surfriders, but Nelson Mandela Bay was a close second and are no doubt looking at a win this year.

The venue historically provides perfect surf during October, and for the last five years of the event has enjoyed excellent surf conditions.
