• Congratulations, Macy! World Junior Champion

Macy-Jane Callaghan capped off her incredible 2016 season with the World Junior Champion Title, in Kiama! She won four events this year on her way to clinching the Australasia region title...and, not to mention, just turned 16.

Callaghan finished No. 15 on the 2016 women's QS, which puts her sites on the elite world tour in arms reach. She heads into 2017 with the momentum and passion to start pursuing that dream.

The professional tour seems to be in good hands as the entire World Junior Championship provided a glimpse into surfing's future. Fellow Billabong team rider, Ethan Ewing, took home the Men's World Junior Champ Title.
