That’s Wild! Coveted Slot in J-Bay Open Trials Up For Grabs (RVCA Junior Challenge)

There’s a massive opportunity on offer for the top Under 20 competitor at the upcoming RVCA Junior Challenge, which is scheduled for 2-4 May at Lower Point, Jeffreys Bay.

With a spot up for grabs in the JBU Supertrials, the RVCA Junior Challenge offers massive incentive.

The victor in the Under 20 Boys division will grab a slot in the JBU Supertrials, which awards the winner a wildcard spot in the J-Bay Open Dream Tour event set for Supertubes this July.

Which means that the winner, if he continues his victorious ways, will get a chance to surf against Kelly Slater or one of the other top seeds when the Dream Tour comes to South Africa in July – he just needs to win the trials too.

Check out the official announcement below.



Jeffreys Bay – It has been announced that the winner of the U20 Boys Division in the RVCA Junior Challenge will receive a slot into the JBU Supertrials event presented by RVCA. The JBU Supertrials has a waiting period of the month of June.

“This is exciting stuff for the junior surfers of South Africa,” said RVCA South Africa’s Chio Kraak. “There aren’t too many slots left in the U20 Boys division, and this announcement will no doubt see it fill up.”
