The Arnette Pro Junior is the fourth stop on the ASP North America Pro Junior Series this season with competitors working to better their chances of qualification for the Billabong ASP World Junior Championships n Australia at the beginning of next year.
The ASP North America region qualifies the top 4 finishers of the season as well as the highest finishing North American surfer on the ASP World Qualifying Series (WQS) who is of junior age for the Billabong ASP World Junior Championships, held in Narrabeen, Australia each January.
The Billabong ASP World Junior Championships crown the undisputed ASP World Junior Champions, awarding them preferred seeding on the ASP WQS that season. The prestigious event has crowned past champions such as Andy Irons (Hanalei, HI), Joel Parkinson (Coolangatta, AUS), Jordy Smith (Durban, ZAF), Jessi Miley-Dyer (Bronte, AUS), Sally Fitzgibbons (Gerroa, AUS), among others.
The ASP Grade-2 Arnette Pro Junior will now play an important role in determining this season’s ASP North America Pro Junior Qualifiers. WaveWatch, official forecasters of the ASP Grade-2 Arnette Pro Junior, are calling for a playful mix of Northwest and Southwest swell to be gracing the competition site at Newport Beach’s 54th Street this weekend, offering the legion of junior talents on hand the ideal canvas to exhibit their collective abilities.
