Dane Mackie.....according to his facebook, was born in 1987. But, we think he put that just because you have to be a certain age to get on facebook, or maybe he's just saying that for the chicks...who knows. But really, Dane can still compete in the under 14 division of the contests that he does, and he wins the 18 and under division of the Barbados Junior Surfing Club's events on a regular basis. Dane is pretty much dominating the younger up and coming surf scene in Barbados.  

Dane Mackie had a phenomenal 2012 season with 38 podium finishes, both locally and internationally,of which there were 27 1st places. Sponsored by Lost Enterprises, Arnette, Vestal, Digicel and Jada, thisoutstanding athlete was honored for these achievements at the Barbados Olympic Association’s Awardsfor 2012 on Friday, 14TH December, being crowned the Junior Male Athlete of the Year in Barbados.

March 2012: Dane surfed his way to 4 (yes 4) wins in the first event of  the Barbados Junior Surfing Club 2012 season. Check it out in this article by adrenalinesun.com.

“GREAT” DANE MACKIE DEMOLISHES THE COMPETITION – Feb 2012

  

Dane Mackie proved he is a true champion at the recently held Barbados Surfing Association, Surfer of the Year Event #1, held at Brandens, St. Michael this past weekend.  The Lost Enterprises, Arnette and Jada sponsored goofy footer was on fire the entire day and showed no signs of fatigue through the two day event and four divisions he competed in.  His level of surfing remained at the highest with his signature front side air reverses and lip 360’s along with his floaters, powerful and radical power carves and big of the top hacks -  Dane was untouchable!!

 

Dane emerged the winner of the Under 16, Under 18, Under 21 and Open Divisions.  In the most contestable Open division Dane would come up against his brother, Bruce Mackie, and Joshua and Alan Burke.  It was a Mackie verses Burke Final which had all spectators on their edge as the surfers took to the water.  Dane out surfed his competitors with his assault of manoeuvres which earned him a 1st Place finish.

 

Dane continues in his fine form having just closed out the BJSC year 2011 as the Champion in the 14 & Under, Under 16 & Under 18 Divisions!!!  “Unstoppable” seems an appropriate label for Dane Mackie!

 

Dane will be competing in the upcoming 48th Annual Ron Jon Pro Am Easter Surfing Event during Easter and onto the ISA Quiksilver World Junior Championships 2012 in Panama in April

February 2012: Dane was featured on adrenalinesun.com in regards to his performance at the Barbados Junior Surfing Club finale of the 2011 surf series.
