Owen Wright Rides The Snapper Rocks Roof – Shooting the Goldie and functional floaters with Ryan “Chachi” Craig

Their first heats back in the big league and it didn’t feel like they’ve missed a single beat, with both men combo-ing the f#@k out of the Snapper Rocks racetrack.

On the scene was our staff photographer, Ryan “Chachi” Craig, who’s also shooting the Gold Coast for the first time.

The sand’s good enough that a lot of waves have fast-moving tube sections, and Owen just laid down this massive drift on the top of the lip and free-fell back down in the flats, stomping it with ease.

This is my first trip to The Gold Coast but it seems to me that Snapper is a tricky wave to shoot.

Owen Wright definitely seems to do more backside floaters than most other guys on Tour, but they’re legit.

Most of the morning and early afternoon heats had a bit of a full tide which limit the foreground, or even the places you can walk around, and shoot with all the water rushing over the rocks.

It’s rad to see Owen back and surfing as sharply as he was, he seems like he’s truly 100% back in the competitive zone and surfing like he did before his injury.
