The first ever Surf Relik Longboard Invitational held at Malibu finished yesterday in a pumping south swell after an extended waiting period. The event aims to bring together the performance and logging fraternities and had a $75,000 prize purse. The events were won by Taylor Jensen (performance) and Tyler Warren (logs) Karina Rozunko won the Women’s Pro division!

Skindog finished in 3rd place and Adam Griffiths in 9th hopefully meaning both qualified for next years three event tour.

Skindog said “It really was a blessing to be part of such a strong and exciting movement for longboarding.. The event was like a dream.. I still can’t process it all now! A great event with great friends, run by great people and pumping waves! The loggers were outstanding on the nose and the women were ripping!

“Looking forward to seeing what locations we will get to surf next year.” Said Bearman.
