The 4th Annual Malibu Invitational went off this past weekend with a solid south groundswell with a pulse of hurricane energy, sunny skies, good vibes, unreal surfing, great kids, great parties, great food, and great friends.

The past 3 years The Malibu Invitational was held to help out young Lyon Herron fight his battle with Garner’s Syndrome. Our efforts have paid off as our young hero is tumor free and is a handsome healthy young man. We are proud of you Lyon and we love you! Lyon passed on The Malibu Invitational this year to his hero Jimmy Gamboa and Jimmy’s Foundation TheraSURF. TheraSURF is born by Jimmy Gamboa and his wife Kim with the help of their friends and family. TheraSURF helps heal children with special needs by taking them into the ocean to catch some waves. TheraSURF focuses a close attention to the intimate involvement with each kid and their families and close friends so all can share in the healing of the ocean together. There is nothing stronger than family and friends and to incorporate that with the power of surfing is an unbelievable experience and a sure thing.

This is really what the Malibu Invitational is about, Jimmy Gamboa’s TheraSURF session.

All the proceeds this weekend went to TheraSURF including our Malibu Invitational Champion/Local Boy Dillon Perillo who donated his winnings. The weekend was amazing.
