Macy Callaghan runner up finish at the Australian Open Of Surfing
Callaghan top out at Hunter Business Pro Juniors
Callaghan easily won the 1,000 point World Surf League Hunter Business Boardriders Womens Pro Junior at Merewether beach.
Callaghan racked up a 17 (out of a possible 20).
In shifting, wind-blown peaks, the 14-year-old Kincumber High student – who started surfing at just five years of age – also took out the U/16 Dalton Lawyers Girls competition yesterday just a few hundred metres north of today’s final at Merewether beach. Callaghan won the U/16 Australian surfing title in West Australia in December in 2014 and the U/14 division in 2013. She also has state titles in both iron-women and board relay events.
“I was confident going into the final and was really stoked when I had scored a 9 on my fourth wave,” she said.
