VICTOR HARBOR, South Australia/Australia (Wednesday, July 14, 2010) - The surf projection couldn’t be much better as South Australia’s Fleurieu Peninsula prepares to play host to the third annual Association of Surfing Professionals (ASP) Grade-5 Fantastic Noodles Pro Junior which starts tomorrow, Thursday July 15 and runs through to Sunday July 18th.
The surf outlook for the Fantastic Pro Junior is very promising, according to Swellnet foreer Ben Matson.
“We’ve got a very active pattern of weather tems moving into the Great Australian Bight, which are generating large swells for the entire SA coastline,” says Matson.
“Fortunately, winds are expected to swing offshore throughout the entire event, which should create excellent, clean waves across the greater Victor Harbor region – I’m looking forward to some excellent surfing over the coming days”.
The event forms a crucial leg of the ASP Australasian Pro Junior circuit whereby professional surfers aged under 21 compete for points and prize money in a bid to become the ASP Australasian Junior Champion and ultimately the ASP World Junior Champion.
The event carries an ASP Grade-5 boys rating and Grade-2 girls rating, and offers a stunning $36,000 prize pool, making the annual competition this years highest boys and girls combined event on the ASP Pro Junior Australasian circuit.
The Fantastic Noodles Pro Junior will be held in Victor Harbor from the 15th until the 18th of July, and needless to say, will be an event that one can not afford to miss, surfers and spectators alike.
For the third year running the Fantastic Noodles Pro Junior organisers have decided to undertake a full Greenhouse Gas (GHG) emissions analysis and to commit to offsetting 100% of its associated emissions.
These efforts to reduce its impact on climate change are a clear demonstration of the Fantastic Pro Juniors commitment to environmental sustainability. The Fantastic Noodles Pro Juniors organisers are partnering with Balance Carbon Pty Ltd to analyse the GHG emission generating activities associated with the event. Surfing SA, event managers have also committed to offsetting 100% of the audited emissions to achieve a zero net emission footprint or as more commonly referred, ‘carbon neutral’.
