Honolua Blomfield (HAW) claimed victory at the Cuervo Surf Ranch Classic in beautiful form. The prevailing winds seen on Day 1 gave way to clean conditions throughout Finals Day as Blomfield put on a show to secure big wins. This result gives her 10,000 valuable points toward the rankings and her hunt for a 2020/21’ World Title.

An impeccable showcase in the Final from eventual winner Blomfield stunned everyone in attendance with a Perfect 10 on her first left. The 22-year-old’s amazing style throughout the wave and ability to ride switch deep in the barrel to finish it off left fellow finalists Soleil Errico (USA), Avalon Gall(USA), and Alice Lemoigne (FRA) needing a near-perfect ride to catch her.

“This means a lot and it’s one of my favorite wins so far in my career,” expressed Blomfield. “I want to thank Soleil (Errico) for pushing me to pull out all the stops and do what I had to do to win. I’m just so happy to win this event and having so much fun. I’d love to get another World Title but it’s going to be tough with everyone competing so I’ll give it my all.”

The Oahu, Hawaii, competitor slowly built her foundation throughout the day, notching near-excellent rides in each of her heats to keep her Final campaign alive. A marathon day, including six waves, tested the two-time WSL Longboard Champion but her grace under pressure paved the way to a massive win heading into the final event of the season.

A brilliant showing from runner-up, 2020 Cuervo Surf Ranch Classic specialty event winner, Errico set the tone on opening day and she continued raising the level heading into the Final – accruing a near-perfect 9.03 and 16.28 heat total in the Semifinals. Though she couldn’t find that same magic in the Final against Blomfield, the determination of Errico to win her second World Title has set up the Malibu competitor for a chance to claim that title at home.

“I feel really good about my result here and Honolua (Blomfield) held her own out there and did what she needed to do,” said Errico. “I highly respect her for that under pressure. Now I’ll just take this at a good time and try to win Malibu. I’m thankful I live in Malibu, and I know that wave really well so I’m stoked there’s a WSL event there to try and get a World Title.”
