Tuach pulls rank in Sumatra


Share post:

Barbados’ top female surfer Chelsea Tuach continues to create waves on the world stage, this time in Sumatra, Indonesia.

The top-rated surfer in the women’s division at the World Surf League (WSL) Krui Pro, Tuach dominated her Round 1 heat on Monday.

The Barbadian has been a standout in the practice sessions. Competing against local favourite Puanani Johnson, and Marie Troja from French Polynesia, Tuach used her experience to find the best waves of the dreamy left-hand point break.

She started with a superb 7.75, which she followed up with another excellent score of 7.25 for the highest heat total in the women’s competition and second highest of the event so far.

“We have a few months before the next QS 6 000, so I decided to come to Indonesia to train,” Tuach said in her post-heat interview.

“I am using this event to get some practice in heats. It is so beautiful here and I am loving the conditions and looking forward to my Round of 16 heat tomorrow [yesterday].

“I am grateful for this blessing and all the support from home.” Tuach will be facing another standout from Round 1, Julie Nishimoto from Japan, along with Australian surfer Lauren Poor and Tianan De Mooij from New Zealand in her next round. (EZS)
