Mikey Wright // France // 2:14

Perhaps the biggest competition in Mikey Wright’s life right now is the one between the front of his hairdo and the back. Mikey’s mullet says a lot — the man cares not for public image, prestige or a lofty position in the competitive ranks. His surfing adds good measure to these points, and we appreciate how Mike’s carved a path to the success not through caring, contests or coat tailing off his sibs — Owen and Tyler — but by diversifying the Wright family namesake with raw. Mikey surfs with that distinguished I-don’t-give-a-f**k-ness reminiscent of another kind of Wright. An Ozzie kind.  For this short,  called CACHED, Mikey and filmer Wade Carroll retreat from Lennox Head to the French wilderness to document Mikey getting lifted, barreled and railed. It’s never wrong to be Wright.
