• World’s Best Juniors Eye ASP Title at Billabong ASP World Junior Championships

NORTH NARRABEEN, New South Wales/Australia - The world’s best under-21 female surfers are about to descend upon Sydney’s North Narrabeen from January 8 through 16, 2011 to battle for the title of ASP Women’s World Junior Champion at the Billabong ASP World Junior Championships.

The 2010 ASP World Junior Tour is comprised of two events which crown the men’s and women’s ASP World Junior Champions respectively and young Australian Tyler Wright (AUS), 16, is currently the frontrunner in the race for the 2010 title heading into the Billabong ASP World Junior Championships.

Wright, who won the first event of the ASP World Junior Tour, the Oakley World Junior in Bali, has her sights set on this year’s crown, but remains humble while acknowledging the tough task that lies ahead at North Narrabeen.
