Roett and Burke rule


Share post:

CHELSEA ROETT AND Josh Burke emerged as the biggest winners when the NSSA Caribbean Conference took place on Friday at the Silver Sands Resort, Christ Church.
Competing in the second event of the Barbados Junior Surfing Club-sanctioned series, Roett was crowned queen in the Open?Women’s division, while Burke captured the coveted Open Men’s title.
On a morning which saw punchy chest-high peaks and strong side shore winds, Roett took control of the heat early in attacking fashion, which allowed her to claim the top spot. Olivia Warden and Gabriella Gittens finished second and third, respectively.
Among the men, Burke stamped his claim on the No. 1 spot, as he punctuated the beach break conditions with several combinations of vertical re-entries and powerful hacks.
Andrew Rose impressively carved his way to a second-place finish and Dane Mackie ended in third, with Jacob Burke rounding out the top four.
Zander Venezia showcased his wide repertoire to take first place in the Open Juniors with Rose once again having to settle for second.   Jacob Burke, the series leader heading into the event, ended up in third spot. Evan Moll was fourth.
The Air Show division was won by Dane Mackie who snatched the trophy as the final minutes ticked away from Rose.
Rose had led for the majority of the heat with a small frontside air but Mackie completed a quick backside air reverse to seal the deal and close the days’ activities.
