The Lake Mac City Pro Junior will be held on Redhead beach on Saturday 25th and Sunday 26th February 2023. The event is open to male and female competitors aged 20 years and younger.
This long running Surfest event provides a great opportunity for the Hunter’s best up-and-coming surfers to compete in an international event and experience competition at the highest level.
The Lake Mac City Pro Junior will be the fourth time a World Surf League event has been held in the Lake Macquarie City region. The Pro Junior will attract around 100 male and female competitors, aged 20 years and under, from across the Asia-Pacific region all competing for equal prize money.
“I’m really pleased to welcome the Lake Mac City Pro Junior and Surfest back to Redhead beach in 2023″ said Lake Macquarie City Mayor Kay Fraser.
“We have a lot of very talented male and female surfers here in Lake Macquarie. This event is an excellent opportunity for us to showcase some of our clean, safe beaches across the Lake Macquarie City boundaries. Its also a perfect opportunity to sell this amazing location to the rest of the world.
“We know how important it is that both females and males compete in high level surfing. It makes our young people resilient and agile and gives them great skills as they mature in life. I know it will be a fantastic event and we are all looking forward to it.”
