Reining World Surf League (WSL) Women’s Champion Tyler Wright is ready to take on whatever Mother Nature throws at her, ahead of the Margaret River Pro which kicks off tomorrow.
The two-time world champion narrowly lost out in the final last year at Margaret River, and says its hard to say what it will take to be successful at this year, and that it depends on the conditions very specifically.
“It’s another raw wave coming deep out of Mother Nature, and you need to be able to roll with what she throws at you and have a plan as best you can, and that’s it”, commented Wright.
Wright’s loss in round three of the Rip Curl Pro marks one of the earliest exits the two-time world champion has made and follows on from a quarter-final finish at the Roxy Pro on the Gold Coast in March.
However, Wright says that although comparatively, each round has the same format, the strategies for each are very different.
“The Margaret River Pro is a left and right break, the right has 2-3 turns and the left is bigger and fatter”, says Wright.
The Margaret River Pro is home to some of the most extraordinary waves in the South West of Western Australia, for the third stop of the Championship Tour.
This year, the Pro will offer three wave options for competition; Mainbreak, The Box and North Point.
The Margaret River Pro begins tomorrow April 11th, spanning 12 days of competition and concluding on April 22nd.
