Surfer of the Week - 11/18/2019

COLE MCCAFFRAY

Age: 14
Hometown: Cardiff, California
School: San Diego Neighborhood Charter School; 9th Grade. Favorite Subject: Science
Sponsors: Billabong, Oakley, Channel Islands Surfboards, OAM, Futures, Vertra, Surfride
Equipment: Channel Islands Fever 54
Claim to Fame: The Southwest Open Season continued with the fourth stop at Church, the only right point break on the 10-event schedule. Despite the lack of swell, Church always offers fun conditions and good vibrations for all the competitors including Cole who was searching for his first win of the season. Competing in two divisions which included surfing up into the premier Open Mens category, he was putting in a marathon day. At times I get bored sitting around a contest all day and not surfing, so its nice to continue to surf heats, said Cole. It is also a good opportunity to surf against the older guys and its nice because there is less pressure to perform. It may be true that when surfing up there is a nothing to lose, go for broke attitude but the skill level still needs to be substantially dialed up. With a backhand attack that was crisp and sharp on the clean, right runners, Cole surfed smart and consistent advancing through eight rounds to both the Mens and Juniors finals. In a test of endurance, he was in the water for a 70-minute stretch for the Juniors semis and Mens and Juniors final. He finished with a fourth place in the Open Mens final and his first victory of the year in Open Juniors which included an undefeated sweep of preliminary rounds. I had to surf my Juniors semifinal, the Mens final and the Juniors final back-to-back-to back so I was pretty in tune with the conditions. I think I was in the water for 70 minutes straight for those last three heats, so to finish all that off with a win in Juniors was awesome! Favorite thing about Church: I really like the length of the wave. On a good set you can get in a bunch of good turns. Age you started surfing: I was 4 when I first started to try and surf on my own. My dad taught my sister and me. Local spot: Seaside Reef. Surf crew: My sister Ella and my friend Kai Anderson. What is the best thing about living in Cardiff? We have a really great local community and super fun waves. Favorite surfers: Rob Machado because I get to watch him surf a lot and he has a sick style and Jake Marshall because he is an insane surfer and hes going to make the tour this year. Fantasy Superpower: Teleportation. Something people dont know about you: I blacked out in a pool trying to hold my breath once. Dream wave: Skeleton Bay. If you could surf like anybody in the world who would it be? Rob Machado because he has such good speed and style and hes from my home town. Who has pushed your surfing the most? My sister Ella because I surf with her every day. Goals for the 19/20 season: I want to surf bigger waves, become a better all-around surfer and win some more comps. Thank yous: To my family and my sponsors who make this possible. And thank you to Janice and Gayline for all you do for all of the kids coming up.
