Clean, two-to-three-foot surf provided a beautiful canvas for the world’s best longboarders to battle for the Longboard World Titles.

Today, Soleil Errico (USA) claimed her historic third World Title at her home break of Malibu. Errico won her first World Title in 2018 at the Taiwan Open Longboard Championships.

“It’s so insane, this is my home, and my heart and soul is here,” said Errico. “I appreciate everyone’s support. I have the best family ever, it’s insane. It doesn’t feel real. It’s been a really long day and weekend. It’s been weird, the fog kind of messed everyone up, but I just tried to stay strong mentally through it and trust the process. I’m really happy.”
