Round one of the World Surf League tour, and it didn't disappoint.
In picture perfect surf conditions, 21-year-old Tyler Wright moved through field in stunning fashion, through the rounds as the quiet achiever. Quiet, until the quarter-final when she eliminated fellow Aussie and six-time world champion, Stephanie Gilmore. Next, she took out defending world and event champion Carissa Moore in the semi-final.
Wright then became just one win away from regaining the title she first clinched back in 2013, and it was against 22-year-old American Courtney Conlogue.
She won in electric form, by 3.73 points in a dominant display, and everyone was #stoked!! Wright now heads to the second leg of the WSL tour at Bells Beach with the league's top ranking.
