Mikey Wright in ROOT

Thursday, August 10, 2017

In the water Mikey never gives less than 100%. Because of that, giant air attempts landed him out of the water and in recovery mode on more than one occasion in 2016. But in 2017, a lot more's gone his way thanks to hard work, plenty of rehab, and of course a huge amount of talent. From a semi-finals finish in the first QS 10,000 of the year in Ballito, to a West Aus trip that produced some of the most entertaining clips of the year, our boy's building towards big things. ROOT is the latest edit from Mikey and all-round legend Wade Carroll, and it's got everything you could ever want in 4 minutes of brutality. Board breakdowns, below (he's 6'0" / 78kg):
