Surfersvillage Global Surf News, 20 October, 2014 - The inaugural Subway Summer Surf Series comprises of 13 events Australia wide and has been designed to unearth the best male and female junior surfers in quality waves throughout Australia.
This weekend will see Queensland’s best 16’s and 18’s junior surfers compete for bragging rights and valuable competitive experience needed to further develop their surfing careers. As added value to the series, winners of the Under 18 divisions will receive an all-important invitation to respective girls and boys, all expenses paid three-day "Subway Summer Surf Camps" at the Hurley Surfing Australia High Performance Centre. Winning participants will have the opportunity to rub shoulders and pick the brains of World Tour athletes and Subway ambassadors Joel Parkinson and Laura Enever at each respective Subway boys' or girls' camp.
Surfing Queensland spokesman Cory Roberts said, “The Subway Summer Surf Series shines new light on the development pathways for our up and coming junior surfers to further enhance their surfing careers while promoting a healthy lifestyle. It’s surfing events like this that really bring the best out of our junior surfers and why Queensland produce some of the world’s best surfers”, Cory continued.
Following the third stop of the series in the Sunshine Coast, the surf series will make its way around the country before returning back to Queensland for event seven on the Gold Coast. Each event is expected to attract as many as 100 surfers vying for the top honour.
The new series was created to fill a competition void which exists at a crucial point in the development of Australia’s leading junior surfers. It represents an important link in the ‘pathway to the podium’ developed by Surfing Australia, with surfers now able to progress from the VEGEMITE SurfGroms program, onto the Wahu Surfer Groms Comps, into the Subway® Summer Surf Series, followed by the Original Source Australian Boardriders Battle.
