Watch Owen Wright Score a Stunning Perfect 20 at the Fiji Pro Surfing Competition

1 minute read

Owen Wright beat fellow Australian Julian Wilson to claim the Fiji Pro surfing title Tuesday in Tavarua, Fiji, scoring a perfect 20 in the process.

His performance on the waves dazzled the World Surf League judges who also awarded him two perfect 10s the previous day in round five of the competition against Adam Melling, reports the Australian Associated Press.

Wright becomes the first surfer ever to complete two perfect 20s at the same event, and joins surfing legends Kelly Slater and Joel Parkinson in recording the feat twice.

“Something special was happening out there. I was just lovin’ it,” he said. “That’s a dream come true right there.”
