Tyler Wright just won the Roxy Pro France and now the 2014 ASP Women’s Title Race is looking hotter than the devil’s toenails. Tyler Wright beat fresh-back-from-injury Courtney Conlogue in sick swell at Les Gardians, France, delivering a performance of such near perfect awesomeness that the judges awarded her 19.20 of a possible 20.
One of the most powerful and progressive surfers on the ASP Women’s Tour, Tyler Wright, brother of the ASP Men’s Tour surfer Owen Wright, has been threatening to deliver a performance like this for a while and now she has, with power turns, gasp-inducing aerials and high speed surfing aplenty. You can watch the highlights here:
After which she said:
The conditions were so fun out there and I just got into a great rhythm. I think my first four waves were all over 9 points so I was really having fun. I’ve had a lot of success here in France over the years and I’m rapt to put another win on the board for this year.
There are two events to go on this year’s ASP Women’s Tour. Cascais, Portugal kicks off this Wednesday October 1st, followed by what is sure to be a belter of a finale when the Tour returns to Maui, Hawaii on November 22nd.
And what makes it super exciting is that with just over 3,000 points between the top four, basically any of them could win, when you consider they get 10,000 points for a win, 8,000 points for 2nd and even 4,000 points for 9th. Check the table here:
So presently Sally Fitzgibbons is in 1st on 57,900 points.
Tyler Wright is now 2nd on 56,200 points.
Steph Gilmore is down to 3rd on 55,950 points.
And the defending champion Carissa Moore is in 4th on 54,700 points.
Here’s the trailer for Cascais, bring it the hell on!
