RIP CURL'S TYLER WRIGHT WINS ROXY PRO GOLD COAST AND TAKES WOMEN'S WCT RATINGS LEAD

Costa Mesa, CA (Monday, March 11, 2013): - Tyler Wright (AUS), 18, has claimed the 2013 Roxy Pro Gold Coast presented by Land Rover over Sally Fitzgibbons (AUS), 22, in punchy two-to-three foot waves at the primary venue of Snapper Rocks.

Event No. 1 of 7 on the 2013 ASP Women's World Championship Tour (WCT), the Roxy Pro Gold Coast enjoyed a down-to-the-wire finish today with Wright and Fitzgibbons going head-to-head in a fiercely-fought Final.

Despite Fitzgibbons holding the lead for the majority of the heat, Wright secured a wave in the dying moments and tore it apart for a 9.20 out of a possible 10, taking the heat lead and the win.

"I don't even know what to say right now," Wright said. "I wasn't even thinking out there. I was singing to myself and when I came in, my sister said ‘I was singing right along with you'. That little wave came in and hugged the bank and I just left it all on the wave. To get the score and the win like that, it's incredible."

With a win at the opening stop of the year, Wright takes the initial lead in the hunt for the 2013 ASP Women's World Title, but the young natural-footer is focused on enjoying the moment for now.

"I'm not even thinking about the world title," Wright said. "I had a rough season last year and I took a good break over the off-season, got a motorbike and just relaxed. To come back and get a win in the first event, it feels great and I'm just going to enjoy it."
