Caleb Tancred is a passionate young natural footer from the Central Coast of NSW. Since a young age he's had an affinity with the ocean and his hometown Avoca Beach. Right from first light you'll see him shredding at his local beach break, Avoca Point, before rushing off to school. Caleb is always up for a chat and loves the ‘old dudes’ out in the surf at home.
Known also as ‘K’, ‘ Snowy’ or the ‘Leb’, Caleb has only one goal and that is to compete at the highest level on the WSL Championship Tour. He is dedicated and trains incredibly hard, taking inspiration from the likes of locals Adrian ‘Ace’ Buchan and Glenn ‘Micro’ Hall. He is paving his way clearly with some major stepping stones already accomplished, recently winning his second Under 14 Australian Junior title in Yallingup, WA.
As a self-confessed foodie, sashimi and soft-shell crab rate as Caleb’s all-time favourite meals. Caleb lives in a chaotic household with Mum and Dad, two brothers and little sister - that is when he's not travelling.
Caleb hopes to challenge himself in 2016 by stepping up to compete in some Australian Pro Juniors, and develop his skills in Hawaii and Tahiti.
