Instagram Challenge

Glued to your phone? Good, that’s where Young Guns Surf kicks off. Round 1 provides three different ways to enter.

  • #YGRail
  • #YGAir
  • #YGCombo

Post your best clips on Instagram, tag @quiksilver and hashtag whatever category you want to enter. Stomp a crazy air and hit #YGAir. Lay into the turn of your life and it’s #YGRail. Do both on one wave and you’ve got yourself a #YGCombo. Stick something big, post it, then cross your salty fingers.

Enter as many times as you like and our official Young Guns judges — Zeke Lau, Mikey Wright and Jeremy Flores — will make the call.

If you’re not under the age of 18 on August 20, 2017, then sorry old man, you’re out. On the flip side, you need to be over the age of 13 before April 13, 2017 to qualify.

Ok, let’s break these categories down.

#YGRail - ­Don't hold back !

There ain’t nothing like a good rail turn. Make it timeless. Make it tech. Make it stand out - Zeke Lau (@zekelau) will be watching.

#YGAir - Send it !

Mikey Wright (@mikeywright1) will be scrolling his feed hunting down your best punts. So find a big ramp and don’t hold back...try not to claim!

#YGCombo ­- Make it count !

Think speed, think power, think flow. Jeremy Flores (@floresjeremy) - who has won two CT events - will be watching. Link together a few big moves and you'll have no trouble getting through.

Zeke Lau
#YGRail - Don't hold back !

Zeke Lau proves a very simple equation: big man = big turn. But, Zeke’s power comes from more than just his size. He’s got style. He’s got technique. He’s got it all — Zeke defines power surfing.

Mikey Wright
#YGAir - Send it !

Mikey doesn’t hold back. Actually, we’re not even sure if Mikey knows how to hold back. He goes big every section, every surf. As a result, he stomps some of the most beastly airs in the game. There’s no better judge.

Jeremy Flores
#YGCombo - Make it count !

He’s fast. He’s fiery. And he’s won two CT events. You’d have a hard time finding a more perfectly well-rounded surfer than Jeremy Flores. So, it should go without saying that Jeremy knows how to put together a fine combo.
