Surfersvillage Global Surf News, 4 December, 2013 - The inaugural A&L Tradies Challenge will kick off this weekend at Jan Juc and will see the tradies from around the state battle it out for the title of top tradie.

Excellent conditions are forecast for the weekend with light winds and a decreasing swell.

Surfing Victoria Official Swell Forecaster Coastalwatch is calling for 3ft of swell all weekend with light offshore winds in the morning turning to sea breezes in the afternoon. With afternoon high tides, conditions will be getting better as the day goes on and will allow for some epic surfing for the finals.

Johnson-Baxter placed 2nd in the TOLL Victorian Open Titles this year and is a well known surfer from the 13th Beach area.
