Congratulations Fiona Wylde, winner at Sunset Beach Pro

After a dramatic and challenging day of competition, Fiona Wylde has been crowned Sunset Beach Pro Champion for 2019. In the lead up to the event, Fiona was looking quietly confidant and self assured in the tricky line-up at Sunset Beach, rapidly gaining respect amongst the local community for her approach, positioning and bravado at this powerful North Shore break.

This carried on through the event itself, as Fiona calmly worked her way through the rounds to make the final, and put on a performance to remember, picking off the best waves of the heat and surfing them with speed, power and flow.

After two consecutive years of finishing second to multiple times World Champion Izzi Gomez here in Hawaii (firstly at Turtle Bay and then at Sunset Beach in 2017), Fiona was able to prove that third time was the charm this year at the sunset Beach Pro presented by Local Motion.
