SuperSport to broadcast Billabong SA Junior Champs

2017-11-16 06:00

SUPERSPORT will broadcast a 30-minute documentary on the five-day Billabong SA Junior Championships that took to the waves at Lower Point in Jeffreys Bay last month.

Featuring the country’s top 18-and-under surfers from across South Africa, the championship produced the closest results in the event’s 21 year long history. The Surfriders from Cape Town reclaimed the cup they won in 2015 by scoring just 63 points more than their arch rivals from eThekweni.

National age-group champions were crowned in u.12, u.14, u.16 and u.18 divisions for boys and girls, alongside a host of specialty prizes supported by BOS, VonZipper, Wazoogles and Skullcandy.

“The event was amazing with awesome waves every day at Lower Point,” says Billabong South Africa Marketing Manager Chad D’Arcy. “The surfing standard was really high – the groms have been blowing up – and it’s great to see some new faces claim the titles. It was a great way to end the 2017 contest season.”

The 30-minute show will be broadcast on the SS8 and SS10 channels at various times from November 13 to 17.
