    Posted 17 days ago by Chasen Marshall

    Competing in challenging conditions in the shadow of the Huntington Beach Pier, Tyler Wright was able to find opportunity where others mostly found frustration. In waves that were mostly in the 1- to 3-foot range, Wright was able to put her trademark power surfing to use and ended up winning the Vans US Open of Surfing. The win is Wright’s first Samsung Galaxy ASP World Championship Tour win the season and moves her up to no. 3 in the world rankings. “It’s been a long event and really enjoyable for me,” Wright said. “I wouldn’t be here without my team and they mean the world to me. All the girls have been ripping this entire event and it’s been wonderful to see. I felt really relaxed and comfortable and everything has gone really well for me this week and I loved it.”
