Two Canadian amigos added to Team Canada

Nomme Mignot

Nomme Mignot and his cousin Diego Mignot will be representing Canada in the under-16 division at the 2010 Quiksilver ISA World Junior Surfing Championship in Auckland, New Zealand (January 20-28).

The two surfers currently live in Mexico but hold Canadian passports. Both surfers regularly compete in Mexico and are nationally ranked.

Canadian Surfing Association (CSA) President John Fluke announced on Thursday that Nomme and Diego would be joining Team Canada. Last week, it was believed that Nomme would be representing Mexico.

Sixteen-year-old Jacob Albury of Lunenburg, Nova Scotia is the third member of the team. Albury, who was born in Ontario and has lived in the Bahamas and Nova Scotia, is in Grade 11 at Park View Education Centre in Bridgewater.

Albury took first place in the open boys division at the Shut up and Surf Classic contest in October at Cow Bay, Nova Scotia.

He will compete in the under-18 division at the World Juniors.
