Sizeable Swell Predicted for the Oakley World Pro Junior


Thanks to a very active Indian Ocean, there is plenty of southerly swell on the way for the Oakley World Pro Junior, which is set to kick-off in Bali, Indonesia on Monday, Oct. 3. At this point contest directors are looking at SW swell in the 6 foot range for the first two days of the waiting period with building SW swell in the 6-8’ range with solid overhead-to- double-overhead surf to follow.

Needless to say the event is poised and ready to get off to a great start!

The contest field consists of 48 men and 18 women representing all six ASP regions. Last week the final spots were filled as wildcard selections were made and the local trials held in Indonesia.

The recently named wildcards include: Brazil’s Peterson Crisanto, Italo Ferreira and Caio Ibelli, Australia’s Noa Deane, Dean Bowen and Felicity Palmateer, New Zealand’s Sarah Mason,Tahiti’s Mateia Hiquily, Hawaii’s Keala Naihe and Indonesia’s Ida Bagus Simarai and Darmaputra Tonjo.
