Freshly crowned Longboard World Champion Soleil Errico joins The Lineup to discuss winning her second World Title. She talks about winning at her home break, how wild it is to surf flawless Malibu with no one else out, the difference between this title and her first one in 2018, and her shifting strategy throughout the event. She breaks down the biggest heats along her road to the title, the boards she was riding and how she sources her equipment, and her goals for the 2023 Longboard Tour and beyond. She looks back at her journey to becoming a longboard champ, being born in New York City, moving to Hawaii and California and starting to surf First Point Malibu all the time, her greatest surfing influences over the years, and the moment she knew she wanted to be a professional surfer. Soleil also touches on balancing college with traveling to compete, working with young surfers through the Rising Tides program, and the wave she wants to surf most.
