Owen’s comeback from serious head injury this year is one of the most inspirational sporting stories of the decade. Going for a World Title at Pipe at the end of 2015, Owen injured himself prior to being able to compete. He was out for the entire 2016 season and there were some doubts whether he would ever surf competitively again. Fast forward to the start of 2017, Owen proved just how talented he is, with a win in his first WCT event back. 'Big O' is back gunning for his maiden world title.
