The ISA World Juniors Surfing Championship has been under way this past week in Nicaragua and Rusty team rider Kevin Schulz has been slugging it out and posting up scores against some of the top junior surfers on the planet. Schulz is a part of the USA surf team and was added to the world junior championship contest at Jiquiliste Beach in Nicaragua last month.
Kevin hails from San Clemente Ca where he would be graduating this week with his class, but elected to follow his dreams and join the US surf team for the contest to try and help secure a victory with the rest of the team. Kevin made it through the first 2 rounds of qualifying heats before getting edged out in round 3. He pushed through his rep heat taking first place with a 12.67, and is up in heat #3 the rep 5 heat against fellow American Parker Coffin, Elliot Ivarra from France, and Hiroto Arai from Japan.
