Sixty-six of the world’s best pro juniors went head-to-head, fighting for the ultimate crown: the Oakley World Pro Junior Championship. This past weekend, Canggu’s playful rights were torn a part, as the young competitors put on a top-notch display of progressive surfing. Among them, Alejo Muniz (BRA) and Kolohe Andino (USA) used their above-the-lip surfing to soar past the competition and straight into Round 3.
On the women’s side, the quarterfinals are set. Malia Manuel (HAW) and Alizee Arnaud (FRA) have been the favorites so far, raking in consistently high scores through the early rounds. But look for fellow quarterfinalists Sage Erickson (USA) and Laura Enever (AUS) to make their mark in the next round, and put an end to Manuel and Arnaud’s run.
Contest organizers have a 10-day waiting period to play with and will assess the conditions tomorrow morning. To view heats on demand and other Oakley World Pro Junior information, click here.
