Quiksilver King Of The Groms Final
Mikey Wright Wins 2012 King Of The Groms World Final
Surfersvillage Global Surf News, 4 October, 2012 : - - Quiksilver teammates Kanoa Iagarashi and Mikey Wright put on solid displays of high performance surfing as they ripped their way through opposite sides of the heat draw eventually colliding in the King Of The Groms Final. All set for the big dance, the two took to the French beach break where Mikey controlled the heat in the building swell at la Gravière applying powerful carves and a critical floater in the mixed-up surf.
“It really wasn’t that nerve racking, it was just you had to wait and the more I waited it made me more focused and more determined. I’m stoked, there’s a lot of good waves out there but it’s really hard to find them…it’s fun!” said Mikey when asked about the conditions during the Final.
With the victory, Mikey adds his name to the prestigious KOTG Champ list among Yan Daberkow, Gabriel Medina and others while earning a wildcard spot into the 2013 Quiksilver Pro France where he’ll test his skills against the World’s best surfers.
A big shout out to Kanoa on your second place finish and congratulations Mikey on winning the King of the Groms 2012 World Final!
Mikey Wright (AUS): 9.66
Kanoa Igarashi (USA): 7.13
