Mikey is the quintessence of the expression “the apple doesn’t fall far from the tree.” The younger sibling of World Tour superstars, Tyler and Owen Wright, Mikey has made a name for himself for having the most wicked mullet in surfing and doing un-freaking-believable maneuvers. Like that one time he fell in Indonesia doing a backside snap and made the most ridiculous recovery you’ve ever seen.
This barrel comes to you from Australia’s Gold Coast, where Mikey sits inside a divine little tube at Snapper Rocks that runs for over a football field long. And just when you think there’s no possible way he’s going to make it, Mikey comes flying out of the barrel like a goddamn magician. Ladies and gentlemen, Mikey “Houdini” Wright.
