Local Macy Callaghan Wins 2015 Slimes Surf Skate Surfarama
Surfarama presented by SLIMES, Mr Pink & SeaFM was held at Avoca Beach on the NSW Central Coast from Friday 9 to Sunday 11 January 2015. With a small to moderate swell of 1-3 foot the girls held strong with one division, the open women’s, which featured local champs Macy Callaghan, Kirra-Belle Olsson and Paris Whittaker.
Right from the get-go the girls were of fire taking advantage of the small and clean conditions to make up some sharp manoeuvres. Avoca Beach has some great banks and holds small conditions on it’s banks well which meant there were small but very surfable faces with lots of options.
Congratulations to Macy Callaghan for taking out the Open Women’s Division and banking $1000 AU a nice prize purse amount for a girls division and a very worthy recipient. Macy has had more event wins in the last 12 months than we can keep track of and she’s just starting out.
Macy said after her win “The conditions were 2 -3 feet pretty glassy and really fun, being at our home break. Surfing at my local break was so good I had some local knowledge and so easy only having to drive 2 mins down the road. In the final we all had so much fun, Kirra-Belle was defiantly a stand-out and tough competitor! I’m really exited about the Rip Curl From Search final this week, there will be some really good competition from all round Australia, I can’t wait.”
