Their ride is over.

Team Canada’s four surfers have been eliminated from competition at the 2009 Quiksilver ISA World Junior Surfing Championship in Salinas, Ecuador.

Kye and Janek Peladeau (under-18), Frazer Laine-Mayor (under-18) and Simon Bauer (under-16), all from Tofino, British Columbia, failed to advance out the repechage rounds on Tuesday.

Despite being eliminated, Canada’s four surfers had a strong showing in an international event that features 264 surfers from 28 countries.

“Janek (Peladeau) did the best of any Canadian at the World Junior’s to date,” said Canadian Surfing Association president John Fluke.

Peladeau advanced to second round in the under-18 category before being eliminated in the second round of the repechage.

The World Junior Surfing Championship is scheduled to continue until April 5 at Playa de las FAE in Salinas, Ecuador.

Day 4 of the competition can be watched via live webcast. Click here.
