The grand daddy of all boarding sports, surfing is at the epicenter of Beach ‘N Boards Fest.
Ron Jon/Vans Junior Pro
Aside from great free surfing opportunities up and down Cocoa Beach, the event will offer up high-level Association of Surfing Professionals-sanctioned men’s and women’s tournaments. The contests will be held during the three best days of surf conditions during the festival’s timeframe of March 13-16th.
The Ron Jon/Vans Jr. Pro will be an ASP 2-star event and the richest of such competitions now scheduled for the US East Coast in 2013. The event will draw all of the best U.S. mainland, Hawaii and Latin American surfers age 20 and under, and will offer up valuable points toward the surfers’ qualifying for the Junior Pro World Championships in Australia. The men’s contest will feature a $20,000.00 cash purse, and the women’s contest will offer a $5,000.00 cash purse. The events are equally weighted with the ASP.
