Set at one of the most famous breaks on the west coast for longboarders, the 24th annual Call to the Wall surfing invite took place on July 18th and 19th in Malibu. The notable event was brought on by the Malibu Boardriders Club, and is now one of the largest invitational surfing competitions for longboarders in the world.
Though normally the competition goes off without a hitch, a surprise lightening storm forced competitors and spectators off the beach for a short period of time, due to safety issues. The prestigious competition is not only a super fun event, but is also entirely all volunteer, which makes the invitational stand out, and stick true to what surfing is all about.
