Billabong to host back-to-back surfing events

2016-09-22 06:00

BILLABONG South Africa will finish off their competitive surfing year with two back-to-back junior events at two iconic Eastern Cape surf breaks.

The first event is the Billabong Junior Series 2016 Final, which will take place at Seal Point from September 30 to October 2. This historically popular and well atten-ded contest will produce event champions, as well as series winners.

“The Billabong Junior Series Final in Seal Point is a highlight of the year for a host of surfers. Surfing South Africa is proud to be partnering with Billabong in their presentation of this popular contest,” says Robin De Kock, General Manager Surfing South Africa.

The second junior event is the Billabong SA Junior Champs presented by BOS, which will take place at the Lower Point in Jeffreys Bay from October 5 to 9. This event is one of the most exciting events of the year for junior surfers.

Cape Town Surfriders clinched the coveted Freedom Cup last year at the Champs by accumulating the highest points over the 5-day period in 2015, and will be defending their title this year.

“We are excited to be entering the final leg of junior surfing in the country,” says Billabong Marketing Manager Chad D’Arcy. “We have the finals of the very popular Billabong Junior Series in Seal Point, and then we go straight into the Billabong SA Junior Champs presented by BOS, the most prestigious junior event of the year. It’s great to be a junior surfer in South Africa at the moment, and Billabong is proud of our junior surfing legacy.”
