Surfer of the Week - 8/19/2019

ELLA MCCAFFRAY

Age: 16
Hometown: Cardiff by the Sea, California
School: San Diego Neighborhood Charter School, Sophomore. Favorite subject: History
Sponsors: Body Glove, Futures, Surfride, On a Mission, Surface
Claim to Fame: For Ella, this spring is probably one she will always remember. A time where she exceeded expectations winning two divisions at the West Coast Regional Championships at HB Pier and then three weeks later taking her third career National title in the Varsity Womens division at the National Interscholastic Championships. At the Westerns, Ella showcased her skillfulness in a smorgasbord of HB conditions throughout the 4-day event. On finals day, she was dropping hammers on southside’s famous Pier Bowl peak in pumping conditions earning the highest heat total of the championship finals-a 17.44 in the Open Womens final. “The waves were so much fun this year, the first day was a little sketchy but it cleaned up throughout the week,” Ella said. “And then finals day was epic, Pier Bowl right was super fun!” Ella kept that strong momentum going into the National Interscholastics surfing for the San Dieguito Academy Surf Team. She asserted her versatility, this time in Salt Creek's grindy, waist high point break lefts winning the Varsity Womens National crown for the second straight year. Now it's on to the Nationals where she will be in the hunt for more titles! Fave thing about HB Pier: When HB is working, pier bowl right is super fun. Age you started surfing: When I was 5 my dad taught me how to surf. Local spot: Seaside Reef. Surf crew: I free surf with my brother Cole, Kirra, and Lulu and Valen when they are in town. Favorite surfers: Caroline Marks and Jordy Smith have epic style and power. If you could surf like anyone in the world, who would it be? Surfing like John John would be amazing! Fantasy Superpower: Being able to teleport. Something people don’t know about you: I love archery. Dream wave: J Bay! I want to surf there sooo bad!!! Who has pushed your surfing? My brother is eggy and annoying but he pushes me to surf better and try harder. Goals: My goal is to make both Women's finals at Nationals. Next year I aspire to surf bigger waves, travel to new places, and improve my surfing. Thank yous: Thank you to my parents for pushing me to be my best, for driving me to all the contests and for always being there for me.
