Younger sister of men’s WCT campaigner Owen Wright, Tyler has grown up amongst siblings who rip. So it’s not suprising that she is one of the most progressive female surfers on tour.
She started last season with a bang by taking out this event, upsetting the norm and really staking a claim to the whole tour early on. She didn’t leave it there either and backed the Gold Coast win up with a second in Rio.
She ended up being Carissa Moore’s biggest rival over the whole year, if she can repeat that awesome start again this year, she has to be a serious contender for the whole tour.
