Team England Juniors Announced for EuroSurf Junior Championships in Portugal

We are stoked to announce our Team England Juniors, supported by dryrobe who will be representing England at the upcoming 2022 EuroSurf Championships in Santa Cruz, Portugal. The event will be taking place from 15th – 24th July 2022. Schedule here.

The contest will showcase Europe’s best junior surfers, competing in U16/ U18 girls and boys shortboard, and U18 girls and boys longboard. Our English athletes will be going for the top spots and titles, many fresh from recent successes in El Salvador at the 2022 ISA World Junior Surfing Championships (read about the Worlds). We are so excited to see the crew out in Portugal, and to also have longboarders at the Event!

A huge thank you to our support crew taking out the Team England Juniors, managing the team and providing coaching. Thank you to Jamie Wride, Beau Bromham and Lenka Koubkova who will be volunteering their time to join the team. It would not be possible without their help.

Thank you again to dryrobe who headline the sponsorship of the Team, and to our other Team England sponsors Caravan and Motorhome Club, Wild West Jerky, and The Wave. The partnership funding helps make the team’s journey to the European Championships possible, supporting elements such as Entry Fees, Team Kit, and Volunteer Costs.
