Julian Wilson Stepping Away From the Championship Tour
Overnight, Aussie Olympic hopeful and ten-time CT qualifier Julian Wilson announced he'll be stepping away from the tour.
"I would like to take this time to let you all know I'm taking a break indefinitely from the WSL world tour for my own well-being and that of my family," Wilson said on Instagram.
"By no means am I calling it a retirement from professional surfing and the decision I have made is in line with what I value most in my life and that is my family," he continued. "The inability to travel internationally with them now and for the foreseeable future is enough for me to take a step back and be there for my wife and children."
"This is not over for me but just the beginning of a new chapter," he added.
