At the conclusion of Sunday’s finals top finishers in Under 18 Boys, Under 16 Boys and Under 18 Girls will be named to the 2009 PacSun USA Surf Team which will compete for the United States in the 2010 Quiksilver/ISA World Junior Surfing Championships in New Zealand this January.

Per United States Olympic Committee guidelines, all competing athletes are United States citizens. Thousands of amateur surfers from California, Hawaii, Texas, and nine East Coast states competed in local contests and regional championship events—followed by the American Surfing Championships and/or the NSSA Nationals—in order to qualify as the nation’s best and reach this pinnacle.
