Rio de Janeiro, Brazil – November 30, 2023
The action came thick and fast on day six of the 2023 ISA World Junior Championship (WJSC). The shorebreak waves on offer at Praia da Macumba provided each heat with a flurry of activity, especially with such high quality surfers packing each match-up.
A shortened day of competition was held for the second day in a row due to the combination of small swell and high tide. The final two heats of Girl’s U/16 Main Round 3 were completed before Main Round 4 was held in each division.
The team rankings once again had a big shake-up. Despite losing four surfers today, Australia maintained the lead, while Spain made a huge leap, all the way from eighth place into second. USA, Portugal and Brazil follow.
