Angry surf fans are taking to social media over a photo posted to social media of the winners of the Billabong Junior Series at Ballito over the weekend.

The photo shows under 18s mens winner Rio Waida took home twice as much cash in prize money as under 18 womens winner Zoe Steyn.

In the photo, Waida is holding a cheque for $8000, while Zoe Steyn is holding a cheque for $4000. 

The photo has been shared many times, with users calling out the disparity between the young surfers.
