ABOUT OAKLEY WORLD PRO JUNIOR
As one of the premiere competitive tours in junior surfing, the Oakley Pro Junior Series will be returning once again in 2012 with the most talented young surfers in the world going toe-to-toe at some of the globe’s most esteemed lineups.
Beginning on February 1, the most progressive juniors will gather for the first contest in the three-event series on the hallowed shores of North Stradbroke in Australia. Following the event at Straddie, the esteemed congregation makes their way toward Japan in August where they’re sure to light up the beachbreak ramps at Tsurigasaki. Based on their results in Australia and Japan, the top six male and top two female competitors will qualify for what is arguably one of the most mouth-watering events on the planet, the Oakley Pro Junior Bali.
Renowned for its sling-shot tubes and perfect ramps, the lineups at Canggu and Keramas will play host for the fabled event in October. If you’ve ever been curious what the future of progressive surfing will look like, look no further than the heats at this event. In the past, we’ve seen the likes of Dale Staples, Jack Freestone, and Davey Cathels and a slew of others all drop phenomenal performances.
Get ready, because the world’s best juniors are set to raise the bar once again as they travel the world in search of crowning the most progressive junior in surfing today. There’s a revolution brewing in surfing, and it all starts on February 1 at North Stradbroke, Australia.
