Local surfers excel in Junior Pro event

Barbadian surfers Chelsea Roett and Chelsea Tuach both performed impressively at the just concluded Ron Jon Vans Junior Pro event which was held in Shepard Park, Cocoa Beach, Florida over the weekend.
Roett produced a commendable showing in the semi-finals to finish third behind Hawaiian’s Mahina Maeda and Tatiana Weston-Webb, while Tuach, the defending champion had to settle for fifth this time around.
Tuach was superb in the quarter-final round, where she finished first in her heat with the highest score, before stuttering in the semis.
She wasn’t as fortunate in finding the waves in her semi-final heat held in blustery conditions, and fell just short of advancing to end tied fifth overall. 
“With conditions like these, it all comes down to who catches the better waves. Though I am disappointed not to have made the final, I am happy that Chelsea [Roett] made the final and represented Barbados,”
Tuach is currently on her way to Peru to a four-star ASP Women’s QS event at San Bartolo, Lima.
