31 Jan 2012 0 Share

North Stradbroke Island, Queensland, Tuesday 31st January, 2012: THE world’s best professional junior surfers are set to invade the high-performance surfing hideaway of North Stradbroke Island (Queensland, Australia) for the 2012 5-Star, AUD$30,000 Association of Surfing Professionals (ASP) Oakley Pro Junior.

Running from February 1-5 and held in the varying breaks surrounding the island paradise, the Oakley Pro Junior is the third stop on the prestigious ASP Australasia Pro Junior Men’s tour.

Oakley South Pacific Sports Marketing’s Beau Emerton said “At this stage, the swell and wind forecast looks like the event will be able to utilise the full array of breaks surrounding the Island,” said Emerton.

“Oakley is stoked to be able to offer a 5-Star Pro Junior event, in a high-performance surfing location and with the calibre of local and international athletes in this year’s competition, it will certainly be great to watch,” he said.

This week’s event will be spearheaded by reigning ASP Australasia Junior Men’s Champion Thomas Woods (Burleigh Heads, Qld), who will be joined by a host of local and international stars including last year’s event runner-up Peterson Crisanto (Brazil), Billabong World Junior Championship finalists Wade Carmichael (Avoca, NSW) and Nathan Carvalho (Hawaii), Conner Coffin (USA) and event wildcard Kai Hing (Wurtulla, Qld) just to name a few.

Top rated Australasia junior Tim MacDonald (North Stradbroke Island/Burleigh Heads, Qld) will carry the hopes of the local crowd and he’ll be joined by five other North Stradbroke Island surfers ready to take on the world’s best in their own backyard.

Also up for grabs is the JS Tractor Big Boost, which will see 12 hand picked competitors (four locals, four Australians and four international competitors) compete for three  brand new custom  JS surfboards with the best placed local surfer also winning one brand new JS surfboard.

Prior to competition on the first morning of the event, competitors will be welcomed to North Stradbroke Island by elders of the local Indigenous community who will perform a traditional “Welcome to Country” ceremony.

The Oakley Pro Junior is proudly supported by Oakley, JS Surfboards, ASP Australasia, Surfing Queensland and Redland City Council.
