In late 2017 Tyler Wright paddled out in a solid North Shore swell, powering through tube after tube, all whilst wearing a knee brace to support a ruptured ligament. This was her training ground, or rehab, just days before the event that would decide the 2017 Women’s World Title. The event that would make Tyler a 2x World Surfing Champion.
This particular day, Tyler flicked us a quick, cheeky grin before focus filled her face and she paddled out. With the knee brace secured and her game face on, it was clear in this particular training session that Tyler was ready to go. Ready to win, and that she did. The very next week Tyler Wright became the 2x World Surfing Champion. #GoTyler.
