Bronte Macaulay

Growing up and learning to surf at 9 years old in the surf-abundant Margaret River region of Western Australia, under the expert guidance of her father Dave, an iconic professional surfer from the 80s and 90s, it was almost inevitable that Bronte Macaulay would pursue the chance to carve out a career in competitive surfing.

After narrowly missing out on a spot in the 2016 Championship Tour, Bronte dedicated herself to reaching her dream by notching up solid performances on the QS and several CT events as a wild card and injury replacement, where she confidently proved she is a talented surfer to be watched, holding her own against seasoned tour professionals.

Bronte’s competitive surfing dream was realised at the end of the 2016 tour schedule, securing her place amongst the top 17 female surfers in the world, and no doubt set to make waves on the 2017 tour! Go Bronte!

There’s no doubt about it, Tavarua has to be one of the most idyllic locations on the World Championship tour. What’s not to love? A heart shaped island with World class surf on your doorstep, fresh coconuts on tap and crystal clear water lapping at palm fringed beaches.

Bronte and Bianca have been soaking up the island vibes over the last few days, so we asked them to dial it down for us in our favorite format - by the numbers! Scroll down to read the Fiji edit and don’t blame us if you find yourselves booking a ticket to paradise shortly afterward...

While we were watching Steph chase down her 2017 #ROXYpro Gold Coast victory, hundreds of girls rolled out their mats on Rainbow Bay beach for the #ROXYfitness event.

Rain, Hail or Shine at #ROXYfitness Gold Coast

Despite the low pressure system bringing the rain, spirits were high as we kicked off the 7am start with yoga on the beach.

The view of pumping waves rolling past as we saluted the sun (hidden behind a few clouds) brought a great energy to the yoga session as did the partner yoga which also gave us a few laughs as we stretched with a buddy.

The fun continued with a 5km run, tracing the coastline from Rainbow Bay to Kirra and then back again.

We think the excitement of finals day at the #ROXYpro managed to pull everyone over the line quicker than ever before, with the winner of the run leg, completing the race in 20:22!

After a quick snack we headed to Jack Evans Boat harbour for the 1km SUP race.

While we managed to dry off during the run, it didn’t take long for the heavens to open one again, and deliver another almighty tropical downpour as we were paddling our way around the Tweed River.

To all the incredible women who came and celebrated along with us at #ROXYfitness Gold Coast, we thank you for your incredible smiles and indomitable spirit, refusing to let the rain hold you back from celebrating an active outdoor lifestyle! We hope to see you all again next year

This time next week, we’ll be back in championship tour mode, patiently waiting for the World Surf League dawn patrol to call on the first heats of the #ROXYpro Gold Coast 2017.

Until then, we scrolled back through the gram and found a few of our favorite posts to give you an idea of the fun that is about to unfold...

Get set to tune in to all the action during the #ROXYpro by following us on Instagram, Snapchat, Twitter and Facebook

Can you believe that, this time last week, we were crowning a new World Champ and a #ROXYpro France winner!? Although our time with the ROXY surf team has wrapped for another year, there were some incredible moments captured, and chances are you double tapped on few of Cait Miers’, beautiful shots that we posted on insta.

Between surf sessions, the highs and lows of the #ROXYpro and a croissant or five, we caught up with Cait to discover what stories were hiding behind her favorite shots from our time on the Landes Coast, and we weren’t disappointed...


A spontaneous decision for a last minute surf before the sun went down turned into the session of the week! LeeAnn was firing, her elegant style combined with the backdrop of the most incredible sunset had me jumping up and down from the beach.

I’d seen this wall on Pinterest photos before and didn’t even realise it was in Hossegor! As soon as I found out, we rounded up the girls and went to explore! The girls were so excited to be all together in Hossegor, the dancing speaks for itself.

Steph had a really cute outfit on one night as we were tucking into a few vinos, so I pulled her aside for a few sneaky portraits in front of the pool. We laughed the entire time.

Out of the corner of my eye I caught Bianca warming up for her Round 1 Heat. I ran over and grabbed a few snaps, fascinated by her focus.

Cait Miers’ Top 10 Moments From the #ROXYpro France


Steph was about to run into the water for her Quarter Final match up. She had her eyes on the ocean and was super focused. There were a crowd of young french girls taking photos and giggling around her, and steph looked over and couldn't resist giving them a cheeky grin.

That smile says it all (or does it, it was freezing!) but despite the fact she was cold, Mainei still managed a smile and a laugh, one that is infectious.

Jam sesh’s were a regular occurrence in the ROXY house on this trip! It was rad to watch these two jam away in their own little worlds, playing anything their heart desired.

I just loved seeing how genuine and natural these girls are. They’re all such good friends and I think you can see it on their faces that they’re stoked to be around each other!

Lay days are made for adventures, and today was no exception. With the swell struggling to build for the final rounds of the #ROXYpro France, we packed the car, hit the highway and headed to Biarritz for a day of wandering the coastline and sampling some of our favorite French treats.

Thanks again Leone and Laura from revelbiarritz, for an amazing evening!

From our saltiest groms to our World champs, we love sharing the stoke on a daily basis, but on June 20th we are joining our athletes and the surf community to celebrate International Surfing Day by heading to our favorite beach to surf, participate in beach clean up or soak up the weather with friends.

And to sweeten the deal, ROXY and Quiksilver are donating $10 from every boardshort and swim piece sold today to the Hawaiian Lifeguards. Because good karma swells and the ocean belongs to everyone.

Surfrider Foundation is hosting over 200 #ISD2016 events across the globe to enable every person to give back to their local beach or favorite surf break. Stay up to date throughout the day by following #ISD2016 on Instagram, Twitter and Facebook for all the fun!

Lay days are time to chill out and enjoy everything the Gold Coast has to offer! ROXY team riders Monyca, Kelia, Rosy, Chelsea, Bronte, LeeAnn and Sierra headed to the beach in search of a few fun waves and a chance to relax on the sand while soaking up the seemingly endless Australian summer sun.

We asked Monyca a couple questions about what it is like surfing with the new crop of groms, her advice for the future and her favorite items from Roxy right now...

Lay day lowdown with Monyca

What is it like riding with the Groms like Chelsea and Sierra?

Well I would hardly call Chelsea a Grom, she is absolutely ripping and a total babe! Sierra Is so awesome, she is so brave and determined! I love surfing with all the girls, its just a good feeling being in the water with such inspirational women!

Lay day lowdown with Monyca

What advice would you give them about starting off in surfing?

Make sure you're doing it for YOU, and make sure you are happy. There are so many ways to approach competitive surfing. Surfing as much as possible is also very important. To keep up, you always have to be improving.

What did you learn from being with the ROXY team?

It has been amazing. I have made best friends, I have learned to love all different types of surfing and riding different boards, and I feel like I'm exactly where I want to be.

What are your essentials when you go surfing?

Sun screen, a bathing suit that will stay put, a good board, and a big smile.

What is your beach playlist?

I'm not picky, I love top 40, old school stuff, and country. Any type of feel good tunes :)

What are your favorite ROXY pieces right now?

I'm a sucker for polka dots so I love the green and white polka dot bikini, and I also really like the neoprene #POPSurf two piece. Its really flattering and great in the water.
