Owen Wright's Stunning Return to Form Steals the Show

Owen Wright made a triumphant return to Championship Tour form Thursday at the Quiksilver Pro. The Australian surfer sat out the entire 2016 season due to a career-threatening traumatic brain injury he suffered at Pipeline in 2015. It was so severe he had to learn to surf again when he returned to the water. Six months later, he's back, and with his impressive win over World Junior Champion Ethan Ewing and Hawaiian powerhouse Sebastian Zietz, it's obvious that Wright's recovery is nothing short of miraculous.
