Owen Wright charged like a man possessed and walks away with one of surfing’s most prestigious awards for his efforts.
Owen Wright has claimed the Andy Irons Most Committed Performance Award. Owen packed some of the most beautiful and also some of the most ugly tubes of the Billabong Pro Tahiti. With no regard for his own wellbeing, Owen threw himself over the terrifying Teahupoo ledge again and again. It was commitment in it’s most pure form and a well deserved achievement for the big kid from Culburra. We’re sure Andy would be stoked.
