Back-to-back Finals in Fiji are no fluke with Matt Wilkinson, leaving Fiji wearing the Jeep leader jersey for the second consecutive year is no fluke either. What’s undeniable is that Wilko’s gaining momentum at the midway point of the season and he’s surfing with more conviction and aggression this year.
