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

Macca has emerged as one of the strongest contenders on the international circuit after posting some fantastic results in 2015 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 is shaping up as a big one for Macca who will be competing again on the World Surf Ski Series as well as gearing up for the World Ocean Ski Championship in HK in November.
