Video: Aussie shredder Owen Wright wins the 2017 Quiksilver Pro – The comeback kid returned from a horrific brain injury suffered at Pipeline to take his first ever Snapper victory!
Owen defeated Matt Wilkinson in a tight battle at Snapper Rocks and won the third CT event of his career. Wright, who spent the last 12 months recovering from a serious injury, tastes his best result ever on the Quiksilver Pro Gold Coast. “At the start of February, I was sitting in the doctor’s office, and there were question marks on the year. So to be sitting here right now, we just pushed hard and went hard. There were a lot of fears I needed to push through to get back into the sport and back into what pretty much took me out and could have taken me out forever. I kept going and kept doing it. I am just so stoked.”
