Promise at Piha
The world’s top young surfers will take to the waves at Piha from January 20–28 next year competing in the 2010 Quiksilver ISA World Junior Surfing Championship. The event will attract 250 of the world’s best under-18 surfers. “It is an amazing location with perfect waves and a great surfing culture. It’s really important to notice that this is the first time after more than 25 years that the ISA holds an event of this magnitude in the Australasia zone,” said ISA president Fernando Aguerre. “Securing this top ranked world event is fantastic for the city of Auckland, and for the sport of surfing in New Zealand,” said the CEO of Surfing New Zealand Greg Townsend.
