For the past few years, the annual local longboarding contests at Malibu have had lackluster waves that don't do justice to magical perfection of first point's potential. The annual "Call to the Wall" held this past weekend July 13-14 at Surfrider Beach got lucky with fun swell all day long and endless sunshine. Really, all day long no matter the tide and barely a gentle breeze midday.
Congrats to Seeababes Mele Saili who made it to the semi-finals and Amy Lowry that took third place in the finals!

|Why can't we all just get a longboard?|
