Australian World Surf League powerhouse Owen Wright is set to shred the Teahupo’o waves this week, as the WSL reaches stop seven of the eleven round championship in Tahiti.
Following his amazing triumph in Fiji earlier this year which consisted of two 10 out of 10 runs in the one event, Wright looks to blast the waves of Tahiti and come away with another dominant performance.
Wright sits a close fourth in the 2015 championship standings, and with five rounds left; the championship crown is firmly in Wrights reach.
Finishing a commendable fifth in last years Tahiti pro, Wright will look to draw on further experience gained throughout the year along with previous knowledge to put himself in contention for nothing less than a victory.
A strong finish in Tahiti will be critical for Wright, as momentum acquired here could potentially set the scene for the home stretch of the championship.
The general consensus for the immediate swell forecast is quite subdued for the opening morning of the window today, but is quickly gaining momentum for the weekend onwards. Wright will be likely to face perfect conditions this week to chase overhead barrels and perform his incredibly technical turns, all perfectly suiting the goofy footer in Teahupo’o.
