GROM OF THE YEAR (# 1)
Jameson Roeber (Long Island, New York) loves paddling out of his hometown, Port Jefferson on the North Shore of Long Island, New York.
Jameson has a strong love and connection to the water. He started paddling at the age of four when he took his mother’s board and paddled off.
Since winning his first grom race at age five, he is now racing nationally, including winning or placing at The Pacific Paddle Games, The Gorge Paddle Challenge, The Carolina Cup, The NY APP, and many other races.
Jameson also loves SUP surfing, Foil, and prone. Although he enjoys racing, he loves helping others. Jameson has found a way to blend his love for the ocean with his love for animals. In 2020, he sponsored an organization called Kids Paddle and the SUP Pup division for Paddle for The Cure, based out of NY in efforts to cure Breast Cancer.
Jameson looks forward to growing as a Waterman and passing on his love for paddling to others.
