Cornwall vs Europe: A Jobe Harriss Retrospective

12 Sep

Jobe Harriss. Remember the name. At just 18 years old, the young Brit is taking Europe by storm.

For the past four to five years, Jobe has been working really hard to prove himself not only amongst the already established UK surfers but also over in Europe on the WSL Pro Junior tour. Until recently, he still had a few years ahead of him to achieve his goal of qualifying for the World Junior Championships. But the WSL changed the rules, and Jobe found himself running out of time as he's now in his last year surfing as a junior.

Taking it into his stride, Jobe Harriss spent the past winter travelling to both new and known destinations, training non-stop and making sure he was ready for the season ahead. This video recounts some of his trips as well as the success he's seen in the early stages of the 2015 season. Let's hope the English Open Champ continues his tear coming up to the last and most important event of the European season: the 2015 Teguise Franito Pro Junior in Lanzarote, Canary Islands.
