Teenage prodigy and top surf girl Tyler Wright is at the vanguard of the most electrifying era women's surfing has ever seen. 2011 saw her smashing forehand attack rocket the then seventeen year old to 4th in the world and be crowned Rookie of the Year.

Born into a devoted surfing family unit, Tyler Wright is stamping her mark on the surfing world having already thwarted some of the top seventeen female surfers on the planet and attained the critics’ praise as one to watch in approaching years.

Following in the footfalls of older brother Owen Wright, Australian surf girl Tyler Wright detonated impressive performances on the 2010 ASP World Ranking to finish at No. 3 overall and qualify as the youngest ever surfer to contend as a part of the ASP Women’s World Tour at barely sixteen years of age.

Tyler pulled the surfing world’s attention after she incurred a wildcard debut into the Beachley Classic after winning the Oakley trails in 2008.

“This is easily the best day of my life,” Wright said. “I’m so stoked. I don’t really have the words to describe it. I knew Silvana (Lima) would be dangerous out there so I just did my best to stick to my game plan and get waves.”

She advanced and overcame some of the world’s greatest surfers including Brazil’s Silvana Lima and ASP Women’s World Champion Stephanie Gilmore, and claimed the largest prize purse on the ASP World Women’s Tour. At only fourteen years old, Tyler bettered the record for being the youngest winner of a CT event, both male and female.

“These are girls that all us grommets look up to and to just be competing with them is an honour,” Wright said. “I had no expectations whatsoever this week for myself and I think that really working in my favour.”

The female fireball demonstrated she’s only hardly begun however; as she went on to squeeze the O’Neill World Cup of Surfing in December 2010, a warning to her 2011 challengers that she would be a serious draw in her inaugural tour year.

Along with her first World Tour triumph in 2008, Tyler Wright won 2 Jnr events in 2009, being the Perth Sunsmart Pro Junior in May, and the Billabong Pro Junior at Bells Beach in October. She constituted part of a winning Team Australia who regained the 2009 Quiksilver ISA World Junior Surfing Title in Salinas, Ecuador. Singly, Tyler won a gold medal for the U/18 Girls Title, giving her an direct entry in the 2010 Roxy Pro Gold Coast Trials


With a broad array of manoeuvres from airs to classic power carves to her complete control in the barrel, Tyler made an amazing induction onto the world stage, finishing number 4 in the world and announced 2011 ASP World Tour Rookie of the Year.

Recently crowned ISA U18 world champ, professional Surfer and young super talent Tyler Wright will carry on to concentrate on the professional Junior Series and the World Qualifying Series in 2010 and in 2011 will aim to qualify for the World Championship Tour in 2012.

Make sure to keep an eye on surf girl Tyler Wright, as this young lady has an exceedingly promising future a head of her.
