Ocean & Summer Macedo

Thursday, April 4th, 2013

Two of Honolua Surf Co.’s local groms, The Macedo siblings, were on an island tour hopping from Maui to Oahu in one weekend, competing in two contests representing us with great results and with big smiles! Stop number one, the 10th Annual Ian Walsh Menehune Mayhem competition at Ho’okipa on Maui. Great success was achieved for both Summer and Ocean. Older sis Summer took 1st in the girls 12-13 age group, and younger brother Ocean took 1st in the boys 10-11 age group. A clean sweep for the Macedo’s! Immediately following the comp, the Macedo’s packed their bags to jump on a flight to Oahu where they would compete in the 2013 Hawaii Regional Championships at Kewalos. Ocean surfed 10 heats in the two days of battle. Finishing 4th in Explorer Mini Groms, 6th in Open Boys (Upper Div.), made the semis in Open Mini Groms AND in the Explorer Menehune (Upper Div.). Ocean’s weekend was capped off with the acceptance of the Keanu Asing Golden Ticket to Nationals! Congrats, Ocean. Keep ripping, bud, and good luck at Nationals! Summer also continued to earn her competitive stripes by surfing 7 tough heats, two of which she advanced to the next round, one in Open Women’s and the other in the Explorer Women’s division. In 14 & under, she advanced to one repo in Open and placed 4th in Round 1, one spot short of advancing. Ronaldo, their proud Papa, said it was fun but hard work. Congrats to you Summer! Keep up the good work and positive attitude! Those combined with your hard work will pay off. We look forward to your many years of success! Coming soon! Honolua Surf Co. had the opportunity to catch up with the Macedo's via Facetime for a fun interview. Check back with us to get to know these fun loving, super groms! Aloha, Honolua Surf Co.
