Aussie surfer Tyler Wright will be carving towards victory as Round 3 of the World Surfing League (WSL) heads to Western Australia for the Drug Aware Margaret River Pro on Wednesday.
After a semi finals appearance at Snapper Rocks followed by a quarterfinals appearance at last weeks Bells Beach Pro, Wright currently sits equal third in the 2015 Women’s WSL standings.
For the past two years Wright has powered her way to a finals appearance at Margaret River only to have victory snatched from her grasp by Hawaiian Carissa Moore on both occasions.
As a result the Lennox Heads local will be looking for redemption and with early forecasts suggesting huge swell of up to 20ft – the conditions couldn’t be more perfect for Wright’s aggressive surfing style.
Known to chase big waves away from competition, if the forecasts prove correct, Wright is considered a big chance to claim her maiden Margaret River victory.
The six-time World Tour event winner and last year’s runner-up in the world standings is itching to get board under foot as all the action from the Drug Aware Margaret River Pro event kicks off on Wednesday April 15.
Wright is currently ranked joint third in the world after a quarterfinal and semi final result so far this year. Wright will match up against Silvana Lima (BRA) and Laura Enever (AUS) in the opening round of the competition.
“I’m so excited to be back down here,” Wright said. “I do this for my career because i want to surf good waves and get out there and do my thing and so its always excited to start an event with a great forecast.”
