2014 Calypso British Junior Squad Wildcards

2014 Calypso British Junior Squad Wildcards

We received a large number of applications for the wildcard places available for the 2014 Calypso British Junior Squad. The standard of surfing was very high and it has been fantastic seeing the talent of young surfers wanting to represent Great Britain. There were British surfers applying from Bali, South Africa and Mexico as well as from inside the UK. This only shows the global reach that Surfing Great Britain has managed to achieve in a short space of time.

It has been an extremely hard decision to select 6 surfers from all the applications we received. However, such a hard process has been made easier knowing that the pool of talent coming through the junior ranks in Britain will undoubtedly continue to drive the British Junior team to new heights in the future.

The selection process for the squad will remain the same next year, so all surfers who unfortunately missed out this year should continue to compete in all UK Pro Surf Tour and Surfing Great Britain events through out 2014 to gain as high a ranking as possible and an automatic place into the squad. There will also be the additional wildcard places available to anyone falling short in the rankings.

It gives me great pleasure to announce that the final members of the Calypso British Junior Squad 2014 are:

Boys

Jake Elkington

Max Payne

Liam M Strout

Will Bailey

Girls

Ellen Harding

Ruby Breadon

All these surfers will be joining the rest of the squad at our training camp in February at the High Performance Surfing Centre in Portugal.

Congratulations to you all.

John Ellis

Team Manager
