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.
Check out the fresh clips from Rusty team rider Jacob Szekely ripping around his local neighborhood breaks in La Jolla California, rightfully entitled Home Sessions, shot and edited by Brian Baucum.
Jake recently took home the NSSA west coast explorer championships in Huntington Beach, and his natural talent both above and below the lip shows is these clips. Hopefully this gets you mind surfing or out in the water!

The Slackerr is part of the Kerrection series from Rusty. Josh Kerr was looking for a board between a performance shortboard (Jokerr), and a groveler (Dozer). A shortboard with comp attributes but a little bit of grovel friendly personality… something for everyday surf with easy transition back to his comp boards.
Josh (155lbs) rides the 5’8”, Check out the size chart below to see what dims you should be riding to get the most out of your Slackerr
The contest has ended, congrats to Rusty team rider Josh Kerr for pushing through the contest to make the quarter finals before getting edged out by CJ Hobgood. Kelly Slater takes another one, next stop is the Oakley Pro in Bali Jun 18th - 19th.

Kerrzy is always a standout and one of the most exciting surfers on the tour to watch at this contest, and you better be sure he'll be putting on a show and getting as deep as he can.
