Rio de Janeiro, Brazil – November 27, 2023
Big performances shone through on day three of the 2023 ISA World Junior Surfing Championship (WJSC) as gold medal contenders began to emerge. Highly consistent three-to-four-foot peaks at Praia da Macumba provided endless opportunity for Main Round 2 to run in each division, along with Repechage Round 1 in Girl’s U/18 and both Boy’s divisions.
Harley Walters (AUS) showcased the unpredictable and exciting surfing that he is known for and was rewarded with the highest single wave score of Boy’s U/18 so far, a 9.00. Brazil’s Ryan Kainalo and Luan Ferreyra also kept themselves at the forefront of the conversation in the division, as did Noel de la Torre (CHI).
