The ISA World Junior Surfing Championship represents the biggest competition in the world for under 18 years old surfers. The 2012 2012 DaKine ISA World Junior Surfing Championship is presented by Billabong, Dakine’s parent company and it will gather some of the most talented young riders in the world.

Fernando Aguerre, ISA President about this partnership: "We began the under-18 World Championship when we anticipated a growth trend in youth surfing globally. Today, this event gathers 300 surfers from 30 countries on a yearly basis, and to share such a beautiful experience with a grassroots surfing brand, DaKine, is great for everyone. I am looking forward to the 2012 edition of the event in surf-rich Panama."

At the same time, officials from Billabong stated: "DaKine is a hard core surf accessory brand focused on developing products that help to improve a surfer's performance. It's a natural fit for DaKine to support the ISA World Juniors where the highest level of performance is being judged on every ride during the competition."
