Steve “Bullet” Mackenzie grew up at Maroubra one of the most heaviest  localised surf zones in the world. Macca was probably the only bodyboarder to be given a  get out of jail free pass as the local surfers loved him and he was one of the boys. The shot below was taken in the Maroubra shorey in the 80′s where Bullet at the time was still a youngster honing his skills. Macca would soon become one of the best tube riders and most respected bodyboarders on the planet.
