Two-time World Champion, defending Bells Beach champ, and Rip Curl athlete Tyler Wright joins the podcast to discuss the season and the upcoming Rip Curl Pro Bells Beach presented by Bonsoy. She talks about her strong start to Championship Tour season, all the physical and mental energy she put into preparation for the year, the support team around her, and her priorities at this point in her career. She looks back at her entry into sponsorships and the tour at such a young age, the challenges of being young in such a heightened competitive environment, how hard it is to stay driven, and her advice for today's surfers in the same situation. She talks through some of the tough issues surfing is facing, the work the industry still has to do, representation in surfing, and staying true to her values and identity. Tyler also touches on her brother Owen's retirement announcement, "releasing the handbrake" and surfing in her own style, her goals for 2023, and why winning at Bells Beach was so meaningful for her.
