Change in national team selection
THE SURFERS OF THE YEAR were crowned for 2014 when the Barbados Surfing Association (BSA) held its annual prize-giving ceremony last weekend.
And while internationally tested surfers Joshua Burke and Chelsea Roett walked away with the top prizes in the coveted Open divisions, new names took the spotlight during the evening’s festivities.
Young surfer Caleb Rapson was the top of the Under 12 age group, while Brian Talma dominated the waves on his paddle board, with Bruce Mackie doing the same on his long board.
Che Allan and Olivia Warden were the big winners in two categories, earning enough points to win the Under 16 and Under 18 categories.
The winners were tabulated from the points earned from last year’s four Surfer Of The Year contests at breaks around the island.
