ASB MAGAZINE: In early 2018, Mikey Wright fell on a wave while competing at Pipeline. This lead to a herniated L4/L5 disc and spinal stenosis. The pain was so bad that he could hardly sleep. For the remainder of the year, Mikey competed in 8 events and finished 12th on the CT. He was unable to free surf for the majority of the year. In 2019, Mikey competed in the first three World Tour events before withdrawing to deal with his injury. After 10 months out of the water, this is where Mikey’s at today.
