The 2015 Ron Jon/Vans Jr. Pro is a WSL 2-star event and the richest surf competition on the US East Coast. The event draws in all of the best U.S. mainland, Hawaii and Latin American surfers age 20 and under by offering up valuable points toward the surfers’ qualifying for the Junior Pro World Championships in Australia. In 2014, Cam Richard’s won the men’s contest and a portion of the $20,000.00 total cash purse. Mahina Maeda beat out her competitors in the women’s contest for her portion of the $5,000.00 cash purse.
