By Anthony Vela | The 4th Annual Quickblade Jr Pro & Youth SupFiesta presented by Infinity SUP announces the list of invitees for the Junior Pro division. Top sup athletes from around the world will battle through highly competitive heats until a champion is awarded the coveted, “El Sombrero.”
For the first time the SupFiesta will feature an overall champion for each age group (must have at least 3 competitors that compete in both disciplines per division). Age group competitors will earn points from their placings in the age group sup surf contest, and the grand prix. The competitors with the lowest combined placings in each of the eligible age groups will be recognized. As an added bonus, Infinity SUP has donated two $500 gift cards to their shop for the lowest placing totals (1 male and 1 female). Gift cards may be towards a new board, a Quickblade paddle, or any other merchandise in the Infinity shop, located in Dana Point. In the event of a tie, the sup surfing result will be the tie breaker. For the $500 gift card if there is a tie, and the results are the same, then the highest single wave score will be the tie breaker.
Just like we have done in years past, we will be giving out some special awards. We like to celebrate education and the importance of hard work in school. With that, we will give out special prizes for our Report Card Improvement Award, as well as Academic Excellence Award. Both winners will receive a FCS prize pack.
To be eligible for the report card improvement award, please submit your most current report card or progress report as well as the previous semesters report card, at registration in an envelope marked “Report Card Improvement”.
To be eligible for the Academic Excellence Award, please submit your current report card along with a summary of extra curricular activities (sports, music, job, volunteer work, etc.) at registration, in an envelope marked “Academic Excellence”.
Special awards will be awarded on Sunday afternoon.
