Steve “Bullet” Mackenzie from Maroubra is one of Australia’s most respected bodyboarders. He won the first contest he ever entered that just happened to be a Aussie Title. Macca went on to dominate the local comp scene notching up many State and National titles along the way. Bullet in the early years was winning with his dropknee but after a wipeout in West Oz wrenched his knee he switched to prone. In 92 he placed 6th at the World titles at Pipe. Then in ’98 he beat 2nd Kainoa McGee, 3rd Danial Rocha and  4th Alistair Taylor to win the most prestigious crown in bodyboarding in maxing conditions. Macca also in 98 won the sports other most desired trophy the Shark Island Challenge. Bullet is best remembered for his classic lines and his smooth tube riding skills, no matter the size.These days Macca keeps a pretty low profile, fishing and surfing mostly away from the crowds.This pic was snapped late 80′s in The Bra shorey  photo Chris Stroh
