A massive congrats to 23-year-old Sydney-native Connor O’Leary on winning the WQS!! Can’t wait to see what he does on tour next year!
“Honestly I’m just excited to surf some decent waves for an event! That’s the most exciting thing for me. But specifically, I’m really looking forward to Fiji, Chopes and Pipe. I want to challenge myself in waves like those, and as a goofy footer, who doesn’t want to surf a left tube?”
“I Just want to get comfortable surfing against the world’s best. I’m not trying to put too much pressure on myself. I seem to do my best surfing when I’m completely relaxed and calm, unlike some other people that like to be pumped up and completely focused.
I’m not setting any goals in regard to results yet.” –Connor O’Leary
