The Billabong Junior Series, the longest running junior series in the world, enters its 19th innings this year. There will be two events in the series for 2016, at Ballito in KZN from 22-25 June, and at Seal Point, Cape St Francis from 30 September – 2 October.

This junior series comprises 7 divisions, including the U18 Boys and U18 Girls WSL 1000 Pro Junior division. Apart from division prizes there are a number of special prizes and awards from supporting sponsors BOS, Skull Candy, Neff, VonZipper and Zigzag.

Billabong is also the presenting sponsor for the popular Ballito Pro. This includes the Ballito Trials, the Ballito Pro and the Ballito Pro Women’s, with all of these events taking place between 26 June and 3 July.

“It is great to have one of our leading surf wear brands like Billabong investing time, money and a whole lot of enthusiasm into our World Surf League events in Africa,” said World Surf League South Africa’s Operations Manager Colin Fitch.

“Billabong has been the foundation for many of our past and current South Africans who are on the World Surf League Qualification Series. It is going to be very exciting if we get a repeat of Ballito 2011 where the surfing world got to see the potential of the quality of the waves at Ballito. I guess Mother Nature and the Indian Ocean owes us another epic event.”

The Billabong South African Junior Champs will take place at Lower Point in Jeffreys Bay, and the dates for this event are August 24 – 28. Always a popular event that is usually blessed with good waves, the SA Junior Champs is a highlight on the junior surfing calendar in South Africa.

"Surfing South Africa is proud of its long standing and close relationship with Billabong, which has been in place for over 20 years,” said Surfing South Africa General Manager Robin De Kock. “We are looking forward to continuing and developing this partnership on a number of events over the next six months. Surfing South Africa is extremely grateful to Billabong for the support they have given to our junior surfing program and thanks to this support, our young surfers continue to gain contest experience and grow in confidence."
