Lower Point, JBay – After five glorious days of excellent surf conditions in JBay, the Billabong SA Junior Champs drew to a close today in high-performance three-foot waves and offshore conditions at Lower Point.

There were some nail biting finals, and much attention on team spirit and The Freedom Cup.

In the U12 Girls it was Gabbie Herbst (eThekweni) who took the title from Scarlette van Jaarsveldt (Cape Town Surfriders), Zia Hendricks (Development) and Maya Figl (Cape Winelands).

The U12 Boys was won by Kyra Bennie (Cape Winelands) from Nate Colby (eThekweni), Ethan Currin (Buffalo City) and River Gericke (Eden).

Zoe Steyn (Buffalo City took the win in the U14 Girls from Katie Winter (Cape Town Surfriders), Lhea Johnston (Buffalo City) and Ceara Knight (Cape Winelands).

The highly competitive U14 Boys had Mitch Du Preez (Buffalo City) in the number one slot, ahead of Daniel Emslie (Buffalo City), Luke Thompson (eThekweni) and Kye Macgregor (Nelson Mandela Bay).

The tenacious Kai Woolf (Nelson Mandela Bay) won the U16 Girls from S’Nenhlanhla Makhubu (eThekweni), Tayla de Coning (Buffalo City) and Summer Sutton (Cape Town Surfriders).

Stylish surfing from Eli Buekes (Cape Town Surfriders) saw him emerge victorious in the U16 boys from Aya Gericke (Eden), Saxton Randall eThekweni and Angelo Faulkner (Nelson Mandela Bay).

Kirsty MicGillivray (Nelson Mandela Bay) was the popular U18 Girls winner, with Nina Harmse (Eden), Natasha Van Greunen (Cape Winelands) and Sarah Ingram (Cape Winelands) taking up the minor slots.

Surfer of the moment is young Ford Van Jaarsveldt, who won a very close U18 Boys final, against Joshe Faulkner (Nelson Mandela Bay), Koby Oberholzer (eThekweni) and Adin Masencamp (Cape Winelands).

The VonZipper Airshow was won by Eli Buekes, who also won the prize for the BOS Highest Heat Score.
