KERAMAS, Bali/Indonesia (Tuesday, September 27, 2011) – The ASP regions have selected their representatives for the ASP World Junior Tour via their respective ASP Pro Junior Series events, and these surfers will now shift focus from local events to taking on the world’s best surfers under 21-years-old as they campaign for the highly-coveted ASP World Junior Title.

Each ASP Region (North America, South America, Africa, Hawaii, Europe, Japan and Australasia) will send their top representatives to compete on the ASP World Junior Tour, commencing with the Oakley ASP World Pro Junior – the first of three events that will decide the 2011 ASP World Junior Champions.

Beau Emerton, former ASP World Tour campaigner and Oakley ASP World Pro Junior Contest Director is looking forward to another action packed first stop on the ASP World Junior Tour.

“Last year is going to be hard to top with the waves we got,” Emerton said. “But we’re going to try and pick the eyes out of it again and run some full days at Canggu and then hit the high tide at Keramas towards the end. I’m still dumbfounded by the performance level from last year. I think some of the World Tour guys would have struggled to win some of those heats, so I can’t wait to see what goes down this time around. It’s going to a great event!”

The Oakley World Pro Junior Bali will run from October 3 – 14. Stay tuned to www.oakleyprojunior.com
