After an action-packed competition at Bells Beach, Victoria last week, the Subway® Surf Series will call Cronulla home for the second of the seven events.
The elite three-day World Surf League (WSL) sanctioned Australasian Junior Qualifying Series (JQS) event competition will take place on the Southern Sydney Beach from the 23 - 25 January, 2017.
After taking out event one at Bells Beach, Mikey McDonagh (Lennox Head, NSW) is eager for Cronulla to kick off and keep his roll going through the series.
"Taking out the event at Bells last week has really pumped me up," said McDonagh. "Hopefully, I can carry some of that confidence into Cronulla and put myself in a decent position on the Junior Qualifying Series rankings."
2012 World Champion and Subway® Surf Series ambassador Joel Parkinson will also be visiting the event on Monday, 23rd January to view some of the promising young competitors in action.
The Subway® Surf Series will commence each day at 7:30 am with the call for the day's schedule and location confirmed via the event hotline at 6:45 am. The event hotline number is 0458 247 212 which will leave a voice recorded message each morning of the event.
The WSL sanctioned Subway® Pro Junior events, which includes 18 and under boys and girls divisions, form part of the 2017 WSL Australasian Junior Qualifying Series (JQS), providing the winning athletes with an opportunity to win a coveted world title at the World Surf League Junior Championships in 2018.
Initial forecasts indicate there will be a three-foot south-east swell on offer for competitors.
The Subway® Surf Series is proudly supported by WSL, Surfing Australia and Billabong.
