Tyler Wright 2017 World Champ!

Tyler Wright has just won her second and consecutive World Title during the Maui Women’s Pro, clinching the massive win in pumping 6-8 foot surf at Honolua Bay.

She’s the first person to clinch back-to-back wins since Steph Gilmore in 2009/10.

“Wow, I honestly at am a loss for words. It has been such an insane ride, and I’m not looking at this win as the end – it’s just the beginning – and it feels so, so good. Thank you so much to my crew for helping me get to where I am today. I couldn’t have done it without them.”

The win comes after the 23-year-old surfed a near perfect event at the Maui Women’s Pro, taking the lead in each and every heat she surfed, and stomping the highest scores of the day in the process.

That she did this after tearing 70% of her MCL in October while in France makes her win even more incredible. She is a true champion and a great role model.

Tyler will face 6x world champ, Steph, in the semi-finals tomorrow. You can watch the event live on the WSL site of follow us on twitter for wave-by-wave commentary.
