CONTEST: Owen Wright gewinnt Tahiti Pro Teahupo’o 2019

Gestern Abend war es endlich soweit. Das große Finale des Tahiti Pro Teahupo’o presented by Hurley.

Nachdem am Vortag ein neuer Swell perfekte Bedingungen an die Küste von Tahiti schaufelte, war zum großen Finale nicht mehr ganz so perfekt. Am Ende hat es der Australier Owen Wright bis ganz nach oben geschafft. Im Finale konnte er sich gegen Gabriel Medina durchsetzen. Somit kam es zum großen Rematch aus dem Vorjahr. Für Owen war es der erste Sieg in Teahupoo und der erste WCT Sieg nach 2017 bei seinem Comeback an der Gold Coast.

“I can’t be happier. Gabby (Medina) was always going to be the toughest matchup and I had no priority and I snuck into those few on the inside. I tried to get as deep as possible and still make it. I teared up out there when the hooter went. I’ve been working hard and I am stoked to win.” so Owen nach dem Sieg.
Der nächste Stopp findet in der Surf Ranch in Kalifornien statt und somit könnte der Kontrast nicht heftiger sein.
