Celebrating Surfing’s Best at the Rip Curl Pro Bells Beach: Tyler Wright and Ethan Ewing’s Triumph
What’s up, surf lovers! Did you guys catch the Rip Curl Pro Bells Beach? If you didn’t, let me tell you, it was an epic marathon Finals Day at Winkipop, and the Aussies took it all this time with Tyler Wright (the sister of Owen Wright) and Ethan Ewing on the podium.
Tyler Wright, who is already a legend in the surf world, grabbed her second win in this competition. And Ethan Ewing, a young gun from Australia, won his very first bell ringing exactly 40 years after his mother Helen did in 1983. How cool is that? It seems like surfing is in their blood!
But let’s not forget about the equipment they were riding. Tyler Wright was surfing on a Pyzel High Line surfboard, which is a high-performance board that you should definitely check out. It’s no wonder she was able to take home the trophy with a board like that.
Ethan Ewing was also on a high-performance board, the DHD DNA by Darren Handley. This board has been getting a lot of buzz lately, and it’s no surprise that it helped Ewing secure his first victory at Bells Beach. I’m telling you, if you’re looking for a board that can handle big waves and help you pull off some sick maneuvers, the DHD DNA is the way to go.
Speaking of sick maneuvers, did you see some of the waves that were being ridden during the competition? It was insane! I was on the edge of my seat the entire time, cheering on my favorite surfers and marveling at their skills.
It’s competitions like these that make me love surfing even more. Seeing these athletes push themselves to the limit and ride waves that most people wouldn’t even attempt is truly inspiring. And to see them do it on boards that are specifically designed to handle those types of conditions is a testament to the craftsmanship and innovation that goes into creating these boards.
If you’re a surfer, you know how important it is to have the right board for the conditions. Whether you’re looking for something that can handle big waves or a board that’s more maneuverable in smaller surf, there’s a board out there for you. And if you’re not sure what type of board you need, don’t be afraid to ask for help. Talk to us or a seasoned surfer and get their recommendations.

The Winning Surfboards: HIGHLINE PYZEL SURBOARDS
Introducing the High Line surfboard from Pyzel Surfboards, a high-performance shortboard that’s been fine-tuned with feedback from international riders like Jack Freestone, John Nathan Florence, Tyler Wright, and Nic Von Rupp. This board has been put through its paces by John John Florence, Jack Freestone, and Tyler Wright, making it a proven design for average-to-good waves. Based on the versatile 74 model, the High Line keeps the rocker while the foil and outline have been updated to fit Pyzel’s idea of a modern HPSB. The stock sizing of the Pyzel High Line provides added float and carry in smaller waves, with a bit more width and volume per size, adding up to around ½ to 1 liter more volume.
