Sun­shine Coast surfers Holly and Sam Wil­liams are con­firmed for this week­end’s Pow­er­ade Ju­nior Pro. This was con­firmed yes­ter­day by Fiji Surf­ing head coach Ian Portin­gale who said they are part of the strong in­ter­na­tional field for the Ju­nior Pro. “There will be ju­nior surfers from Van­u­atu, New Zealand, Samoa and Aus­tralia com­pet­ing against a strong lo­cal Fi­jian group,” he said.

Portin­gale said Holly is the Queens­land top ju­nior girl who will set a high stan­dard dur­ing the com­pe­ti­tion. The in­au­gu­ral event pre­sented by Cloud­break kicks-off at the Si­ga­toka Sand Dunes in Ku­lukulu on Fri­day. “There will be signs-up on the Queens Road to en­able peo­ple to find where the event is tak­ing place.” There are a to­tal num­ber of 45 con­firmed participants but the num­bers are ex­pected to in­crease be­fore the com­pe­ti­tion starts. The open­ing cer­e­mony will be held at Club Masa, Si­ga­toka. Edited by Leone Cabenatabua
