In ’84 upencoming Cronulla surfer Michael Mackie was profiled in Tracks as one of the hottest kids in Australia. The Pro Junior was the stepping stone for young Surfers and Mick was regarded as a future champion at the time. Ross Marshall,Greeny, Occy , Dog and Glenn Pringle were all Pro Junior standouts which helped launch their pro careers. Mick eventually took a different route charging heavy reefs at home and shaping boards. Tracks clipping below pic Nolan.

Mick was and always be a dedicated waterman in every sense of the word. He loves nothing better than chasing the biggest and best waves the Eastcoast has to offer. During his time in Cronulla he excelled in the big stuff at The Point and The Island. This pic was captured during a solid South East clean swell in the early 80’s. Mackie was carving each ride with his classic casual flowing style making it look easy, kind of like Lopez at Pipe. A few years later he moved to Ulladulla where he setup his own surfboard shaping business.
