2015 SurFest Newcastle Pro Junior Results

15th February 2015

After a couple of shark sightings the 2015 SurFest Pro Junior finished up with some great waves at Merewether Beach in Newcastle, north of Sydney on Sunday.

It was the runner up of last week’s Australian Open Pro Junior and 2014 prodigal child Macy Callaghan who defeated  Holly Wawn (Aus), Stephanie Single (Aus) and Chelsea Tauch (Barbados) with a massive final score of 17.00 out of 20. Macy’s style is strong and consistent and she has been cruising through most events that she enters. Her strong forehand and backhand carves give her the opportunity to generate speed to execute just what the judges are looking for.

Macy said after her win “Condition were really tricky but there was some really fun waves out there for the finals! It was really nice having a major comp so close to home and I love Surf Fest at Newcastle it’s relaxed and parking is easy as well!”

Macy is also competing in the QS event starting today.
