The Fall: At the 2013 Rip Curl Pro Bells Beach, Wright suffered a back injury that forced him to miss the rest of the season. The road to recovery wasn't easy, but few doubted that he'd come back stronger than ever.
The Rise: Two years after his injury at Bells, Wright is back on Tour in a big way. After winning the 2015 Fiji Pro -- scoring two perfect 20-point heats in the process -- he is No. 3 in the world and gunning for his first World Title. Before the Final in Fiji, he discussed his journey from injury to triumph.
