Vaikobi product I couldn't live with out: PFD for obvious reasons + the fact I'm not that great a swimmer. Plus the new v ocean paddle top is a winner!

We are stoked to have World U/23 Oceanski Champion, Mackenzie Hynard (AKA Macca, Big Wave Macca) on the Vaikobi Race Team!

Macca has emerged as one of the strongest contenders on the international circuit after posting some fantastic results in 2015 and 2016 including his big U/23 title in Tahiti at the Worlds.

Macca was brought up in the Surf Life Saving scene in Australia and is a professional lifeguard whilst also competing on the World Surf Ski Series. 

2017 has been a great year so far for Macca, with 2nd's and 4th's across all the Australian Ocean Racing Series!
