All Australian women professionals avoid elimination in first day of Margaret River Pro surfing action

Local star Bronte Macaulay’s quest to continue on the main tour was kept alive with a gutsy effort on day one of the Margaret River Pro on Monday.

Macaulay, who is fighting for her spot on the World Surf League’s Championship Tour, snared attention with her sharp backhand attack in her opening round heat against fellow Aussie Tyler Wright and Hawaii’s Gabriela Bryan.

Macaulay came in second on a two-wave score of 9.67.
