Christian Surfers Thailand hosted their Junior Surf Contest event where 40 kids from Koh Payam, Khao Lak, Klok Kloi and Phuket came together battle it out.
The future of Thai surfing looks very good as some of these little grommets did extremely well. The rain held off and there were perfect consistent waves all day.
The contest was for ages 14 and under with four being the youngest age entered. The whole Thai surfing community got behind this event and big shouts should go out to the sponsors, Surin/Bangtao Lifeguards, Freedom Boardsports, Quicksilver, Andaman Sea Surf and Saltwater Dreaming Surf Hhop.
Not only was this the very first surf contest on Bang Tao beach, but it’s the first time so many different surf communities have been represented in the grom division.
Organisers said the idea behind this event was to help develop young Thai surfer’s skills and excitement, as well as develop those interested in running and judging surf contests.
