Team Canada for the World Junior Surfing Championship

Below are brief profiles of four East Coast surfers who hope to compete in the  2010 Quiksilver ISA World Junior Surfing Championship in Auckland, New Zealand this coming January.

Getting to the other side of the globe is obviously very costly and all four kids are looking for funding and donations to help get them there.

Those who are interested in donating or would like more information can contact Canadian Surfing Association President John Fluke at or (902) 488-4252.
