When do you ever get Malibu this good all to yourself and three friends at a time? Last weekend, the typically thick line-up at First Point became an empty stage for the solo wave dancers competing at the 2015 MSA Classic Invitational. For anyone who's surfed Malibu's magical point at its best (with the worst of crowds), open space like this is basically flying through the blue skies and fluffy clouds of heaven. The fun waves rolled on all weekend, plus warm water, plus scorching hot weather. Find us under the umbrella shade between heats.

Congrats to the Seeababes who placed in the events: Makala Smith: 3rd in the Women's Logger Pro, Karina Rozunko: 1st in Junior Women, Mele Saili: 2nd in Women 20-34, and Taylor Nelson: 3rd in Women 20-34.

Big thank you and shakas to Erin Ashley for organizing the Women's Logger Pro Event and assembling some of the best lady longboarders around to play together!
