Steyn Wins Billabong Pro Junior

by | Sep 23, 2019

Zoë Steyn (East London) won the Billabong Pro Junior Seal Point presented by BOS World Surf League (WSL) Junior Qualifying Series (JQS) 1,000 at Seal Point, Cape St Francis on Sunday, 22 September.

Despite a less than ideal start to the competition coming back from the ISA World Surfing Games in Japan, Steyn went straight from the airport into her heats. She defeated her close rival Ceara Knight (Kommetjie) in the final with 14.75 over Knight’s 9.90 (out of a possible 20). With this win, Steyn also reclaimed the number one spot on the WSL Africa rankings.
