"I was just feeling it, I was looking at the waves before and I knew it was going to be good," Wright said.

"It was kind of tricky, I was very selective.

"This whole season has been super interesting, and I just found out the difference between someone who cares and someone who doesn't, and I care.

"I couldn't have done any of this without Owen and Matt my shaper and the rest of my family, I'm pretty stoked."
