Tyler got washed over the chain and into the pool
Surfersvillage Global Surf News, 24 January, 2015 - Competing for her home surf club, Culburra Boardriders from southern NSW, Tyler Wright (AUS) washed up on the rocks during the Australian Boardriders Battle and was taken to the hospital in stable condition for precautionary checks.
Wright, currently ranked No. 2 on the women's Championship Tour (CT) rankings, put her body on the line for her club when she went left at Alley Reef. She was washed over the rocks, through the chain fence and into the ocean pool.
As she attempted to get her board, she was forced to jump from the pool wall back into the surf, only to be washed back over the chain and into the pool again. Her brother and fellow CT competitor Owen Wright was first to reach and comfort his sister.
Wright's Culburra Boardriders are still in contention to win the National Final. This is the first season the club is competing and Wright's contribution on Day 1 of competition helped boost her team's standing in the contest.
