Rio de Janeiro, Brazil – November 28, 2023
Dreams were fulfilled and first surfers were eliminated on day four of the 2023 ISA World Junior Surfing Championship (WJSC). Praia da Macumba continued to provide highly contestable two-to-three foot surf for a full day of repechage rounds that saw the original field significantly slimmed down.
Due to the swell forecast, the second rounds of repechage, which were held in each division today, will be the last of the event. Each heat moving forward will be a Main Round elimination heat, making every victory today that much sweeter, with every surfer who progressed knowing they were headed straight back into the Main Round.
