Brandon Jackson and Shane Sykes Earn Mr Price Pro Wildcards

North coast locals, Brandon Jackson and Shane Sykes, grabbed the two remaining wildcards into the 6-Star Prime Mr Price Pro Ballito this past Saturday at the Mr Price Pro Trials.

Conditions were tough, but Shane Sykes was tearing it up on his way to earning a wildcard.

For Shane in particular, it’s a huge deal to grab a spot in the main event. The experience and QS points up for grabs are a massive boost for a Pro Junior looking ahead to a full professional career.

“For sure the biggest day of my life in surfing. So pumped to have made it into the Mr Price, especially with the legend @djacko,” claimed Shane on Facebook.

Jacko and Shane, stoked to earn the Mr Price Pro Ballito wildcards.

Now working in the industry after retiring from the tour a few years ago, Brandon Jackson won’t be feeling any pressure to perform. But with the massive prizemoney incentive a 6-Star Prime event offers, he won’t be taking it easy. He also hasn’t forgotten how to win a heat, so he’ll be looking to claim as many as possible in front of his local crowd.

Kai Linder from Captain Kai’s World will be down on the beach all week bringing his side of the action. Check out his preview below:
