Nyxie Ryan from Lennox Head is representing Australia while competing at the 2019 VISSLA ISA World Junior Surfing Championship held at Huntington Beach in California. 

The 16-year-old Ryan is a member of the twelve-strong Australian Team and is their top-ranked surfer in the women’s U/18 division. 

More than 340 surfers from a record-matching 44 nations make up the championships.

Nyxie is the seventh seed in the field of 78 surfers in her division. Seeding is based on the final position of each team in last year’s championships where Team Australia finished third, with teams in overall seeding order and then in order of individual surfers within their team. 

Looking through the list of Ryan’s competitors it appears she has the credentials to be comfortably in the top ten performers and potentially a finalist. Historically, the ISA has served as a glimpse into the future stars of the sport with several professional world champions on the winners roll.
