The Surf Relik Championship was the biggest longboard event of the last 10 years in California, the largest purse in California longboard history ($75k) and featured the elite of the planks on the magic rights of First Point in Malibu near Santa Monica in northern Los Angeles. This was a test event, with WSL level awards, and should be part of the World Circuit next year.

With a window of 15 days, the championship had epic waves on the first day, lowering a little during the finals. Due to a local rule, the event can not occupy the two days of the weekend, so it ended up being held this Sunday and Monday, October 8 and 9.


Tyler Warren took first this past weekend in the Logger division representing the icons of style.


A current leader of the WSL ranking, Chloé Calmon won the quarterfinals Hawaiian Crystal Walsh, her direct competitor in the world title race, which will have its decisive stage in Taiwan at the end of November. Previously, Carioca defeated former world champion Lindsay Steinridee, and in the semi-final was defeated by Malibu and event champion Karina Rosunko.
