Tyler Wright attacks every section of every wave with unbridled aggression. She's the one pumping her fist when she gets chaired up the beach after a big win. And she's the one downplaying any developing rivalries when it's obvious how much a good result means to her. "I hang out with Lakey [Peterson] and Carissa [Moore] and Steph [Gilmore], I don't go out and look for rivalries and negativity," says Wright. "I only see the good stuff." If she can beat her world title-winning friends, she's ripe for a title of her own.
