Junior surfers back at Soup Bowl
BARBADOS’ best young surfers will be looking to defend their home surf when the Soup Bowl Pro Junior returns to Bathsheba in St Joseph for the fourth consecutive year.
The event, which starts today and ends Sunday, is the last chance for North America Junior Tour competitors to qualify for the World Junior Championships as they come up against the likes of Bajan trio Jacob Burke, Che Allan and Zander Venezia.
Holding a secure lead at the No. 1 spot on the North America Junior Tour rankings, Alyssa Spencer is coming to Barbados for the first time hoping to qualify for the World Junior Championships. She must finish strongly to secure her spot to New South Wales, Australia, in January.
Burke, Barbados’ Junior Tour and Qualifying Series surfer, usually trains at the Soup Bowl and will be using vital knowledge at a very unique reef break. (EZS/PR)
