It was a long and warm day of surfing at JBay for the second day of the 23rd Sea Harvest SA Junior Surfing Championship, with some great surfing and a few eliminations at this early stage.

The U12 divisions were the first off, and the kids paddled out at 7am for the first heat of the day. There were a few bigger sets and some exciting moments, as the best young surfers in the country battled it out on the right-hand slides of JBay.

There is a slight lift in the swell, and the rest of the competition period up until the final day on Sunday looks promising for surf and for conditions. The rain that was predicted for Sunday has moved out until early next week and there is a good chance of excellent surf to finish the contest.
