The first and only Pro Jr event of the year to be held on the North Shore went down this past week at Sunset Beach presented by North Shore Surf Shop, Rusty, and Da Hui. The crew of young competitors took to the stage with some legit Sunset bombs coming through each heat, making positioning and knowledge a huge factor.

At then end of the day it was San Clemente's Ian Crane who took the men's division win, and Moana Jones taking the win in the girls division. Another standout in the competition was Seth Moniz surfing well past his 15 years of age and gaining enough points to enter the 2013 season as the #1 rated Hawaiian jr.

Thanks to all the contestants, North Shore Surf Shop, Da Hui, and contest director/promoter Liam Mcnamara.

The 2nd annual North Shore Surf Shop Pro Junior presented by Rusty and Da Hui officially gets underway today on Oahu's North Shore. The largest pro junior surfing competition in Hawaii’s history will run its first rounds of competition January 17, at Turtle Bay Resort, before moving to Sunset Beach January 18-26.

It will feature more than 100 of the top Under 21 surfers in the nation – male and female – as well as juniors from Europe, Japan and South America. Carrying a 3-Star Mens rating and a 2-Star Womens rating, the event will offer $18,000 in prize money for the competitors who take on Sunset.

Male competitors include defending champ Ezekiel Lau (Oahu), Oahu’s Eala Stewart, Kauai’s Kaimana Jaquias, California’s Coffin brothers, Costa Rica’s Carlos Muñoz, Peru’s Cristobal de Col, Italy’s Leonardo Fioravanti, Japan’s Takumi Yasui, and second generation names like Curren, Beschen, Moniz, McNamara, Sarlo, Aikau and Rothman.

Longtime North Shore pro surfer Liam McNamara is the event organizer and founder, and former ASP world #2 ranked Shane Beschen is the contest director. With solid surf on tap, Hawaii’s fleet of junior surfers are ready to take on the sport’s ultimate proving ground: Oahu’s North Shore and Sunset Beach.
