Tyler crosses the Tasman

UPDATE, 12.30pm: TYLER Wright will be hoping to start her bid to reclaim the world's top women surfer mantle tomorrow.

The Lennox Head competitor should be in action at the TSB Bank NZ Surf Festival featuring Dow AgroSciences Pro.

A good performance at the event, taking place Taranaki on New Zealand's North Island, could see world number two Wright return to the top of this year's rankings.

The event was due to start yesterday, but organisers called a lay day due to poor surfing conditions.

Top surfers from across the globe will be at the event, the fourth of seven on the 2013 women's circuit.

 

6am: LENNOX Head's Tyler Wright was due to resume her quest for world surfing honours today.

Wright, who is currently ranked world number two on the Association of Surfing Professionals (ASP) World Championship Tour, is among contestants for the circuit's latest event in New Zealand.

The TSB Bank NZ Surf Festival featuring the Dow AgroSciences Pro will include some of the best female surfers from across the planet.

The event, taking place in Taranaki on the country's North Island, is the fourth of seven stops on this year's ASP women's tour.

Wright has made an excellent start to the year and currently sits number two after a runner-up spot last weekend at Victoria's Bells Beach event.

The competition is due to run until Sunday.
