Chauncey drew the wild card slot for the World Surf League (WSL) Junior Championships to be held in Australia in January!
Only the top 4 North American WSL Jr. Pro surfers earned a spot to compete in the World Junior Championships; Chauncey missed it by just one place. He is so stoked to be offered the wild card slot which earns him the right to compete against the top 32 surfers in the world under-18 years of age.
Funds from this campaign will go toward paying for his and his chaperone's airfare, board fees, accomodations and ground transport. Total expenses are expected to be over $8000.
Funds are needed fast as the competition is January 4 - 13!
Chauncey has worked very hard to make this possible; training in mediocre waves in Florida. He has not had the benefit of sponsorship money, or wealthy parents to foot the bill, so unlike other competitors, his travel has been limited. This will be the first time he will be able to travel to Australia.
Even the smallest of contributions will go a long way and Chauncey will be very grateful as this is his first and last year to compete as a Junior Pro.
