Today the World Surf League announced that Tyler Wright withdrew from the final event of the year in Maui.
Tyler Wright’s message on Instagram – “It’s been 5 months since Influenza A prevented me from competing at J’Bay. Since then, I haven’t been able to regain full health and have been diagnosed with Post Viral Syndrome. This means I’m tired (a lot), my body aches and my brain hurts – I’m really not much fun to be around! It took me a while to understand what was going on. Other times when I’ve been sick, I’ve been able to recover or to push through it to compete.
I’ve had great doctors and amazing support from Alex, my family, @wsl @surfingaustralia and my sponsors. There’s no clear timeline for recovery but I’m doing what I can to get back to full physical and mental health.
Until then, I’ll be reading Harry Potter/my book and living that sass queen life. All the best to the girls in Maui. Thanks to everyone for your understanding and support.”
We support you legend and your road to recovery.
