It wasn’t this time that the surfer from Rio de Janeiro Chloé Calmon won the long-desired title of the Women’s Longboard World Tour. After securing the vice-championship in three opportunities (in 2016, 2017 and 2019), the Brazilian finished the season in third after falling in the semifinals of the Malibu (United States) stage this Tuesday (12).
The Brazilian started the day beating the Hawaiian Kirra Seale by 13.73 to 10.27 in the quarterfinals. However, in the semifinals she was surpassed by the French Alice Lemoigne (who won the stage) by 8.90 to 8.83. Although the athlete from France got the victory in Malibu, the world title went to the Hawaiian Honolua Blomfield.
“It was worth reaching the semifinals and there is no easy heat on the last day of competition, because all the girls are surfing very well”, declared Chloé Calmon.
The men’s world title went to American Joel Tudor, who, like Honolua Blomfield, won the World Longboard Tour for the third time.
