Bronte Macaulay (AUS) won the Doyle Partners Women’s Pro event, the WSL Qualifying Series (QS) 5000, as part of the 35th Annual Newcastle Surf Contest organized by Burton under challenging conditions at Merewether.
Use your reliable backhand technique to post multiple six-point trips. Bronte Macaulay has scored a total of 12.80 during her beach break to launch her own 2020 victory campaign. She seemed relaxed all week, earning 17.40 in Round 4, and again in very right bends sharply in the last 35 minutes. So, she led from beginning to end to confirm the best result of her career.
Previously, I only won one QS, so it was great to have the second one according to Macaulay. We have been off for two months, it’s hard to know where you are relative to others. This year I hope to achieve some great results, but it’s an excellent way to start the year.
After a slow start, former Surfest Junior champion, back in 2015 and 2016, Macy Callaghan (AUS) fought to return to the heat with the wave having the highest score of the final. Committing to performing a major hack on the rail to post 7.57 and crossing the standout range on its own, it set up a final tense act in 12 minutes so far. The world number 17 could not find a backup. However, dropped twice in the last moments and couldn’t find the 5.23 needed to move forward, eventually taking second place. The result was confidently inspired before coming to Manly to continue its 2020 campaign.
“I like winning, it’s an excellent start of the year and gives me a lot of confidence. I have many good memories in Newcastle, I won the Pro Junior and Cadet Cup here the same year when I was 15 years old. I am delighted to offer what I did at Newcastle on CT this year.
