Billabong Junior Series Final Event Set for Seal Point

The final event of the Billabong Junior Series 2017 presented by All Aboard Travel will take place at Seal Point, Cape St Francis on the weekend Friday 29 Sept – Sunday 1 October.

This year is the 20th year of this highly successful and nurturing Junior Series and the contest at Seal Point will actually clock in as the 59th individual event since the series started in 1997.

This series – the longest running junior series in the world – has seen the likes of Jordy Smith and Bianca Buitendag emerge as Championship Tour surfers, and the latest graduate looks to be Mikey February from Cape Town. He is currently ranked fifth on the World Surf League’s World Qualifying Series rankings.

The exciting four part series commenced in Port Elizabeth, headed down to Cape Town as part of the BOS Cape Crown, moved on to event three that took place as part of the Ballito Pro, and will culminate in Seal Point with the fourth and final competition.

There will also be the regular VZ Airshow, with R2k first prize, and the winner of the U18 Pro Junior Men as well as the winner of the U18 Pro Junior Women will be going to Bali courtesy of All Aboard Travel.
