The Boost Mobile SurfSho presented by Samsung will be taking place on Bondi Beach from 12th to 14th March. One of the seeds is Boost Team Rider Owen Wright who turned heads at the 2008 SurfSho when he took out both the Junior trials and the main event, defeating both Mick Fanning and Taj Burrow in the process. Mikey Wright is in the junior trials and is also in the celebrity charity challenge in Taj Burrow's team which should be webcast around 12:00pm Staurday.

FUEL TV will be covering the finals this Sunday from 2:15pm till 3:15pm.

Mikey had a red hot go at the junior trials but fell just short of qualifying. He surfed really well in the charity challenge attempting some big airs and nailing a massive backside floater before his bro dropped in on him and proceeded to smash a huge frontside air reverse. Owen had the crowd pumped for the final day with his  almost nonchalant aerial act.

Owen has won the Boost Mobile SurfSho in spectacular fashion at Bondi. Three minutes into the final Owen nailed a huge frontside air reverse and scored a 9.80. Mick, Jordy, Chippa and Kerrsy were simply blown out of the water.

"I'm ecstatic! Where's the thesaurus to describe how I feel? It was a great final, great atmosphere, and a great crowd. I'm buzzing! It's been a big three days. I'm stoked to be at Bondi and walking away with the Boost Mobile SurfSho trophy and this cheque!"

This is Owen's 2nd Boost Mobile SurfSho win. Congatulations
