Rip Curl Teamrider Dillion Perillo Wins the 4th Annual Malibu Invitational presented by Primo Beer

After relinquishing into the depths of Indonesia for the reinvigoration of Rip Curl's Search expedition, Tip 2 Tip, Dillon Perillo resurfaced for the 4th Annual Malibu Invitational presented by Val Surf.
 
The event, which amasses both local pros and legends of the iconic surf area, benefitted the good folks at Therasurf, who put on an amazing demonstration where kids with disabilities overcame those obstacles to enjoy the fruits of First Point in Malibu.
 
Perillo, who was born and bred within a bike's ride of  the legendary pointbreak, went absolutely ballistic on the final day. With four separate 9.5+ rides, including a perfect 10 in his semifinal, the stylish regularfoot went on to capture the win and $2k for his efforts.
 
However, in the spirit of the event, Perillo immediately handed the winner's check back to Therasurf. "I am just stoked someone from Malibu finally won the thing,” laughed Perillo. “I haven’t won a comp this year so it feels really good. I want to thank everyone involved and I am handing the winners check over to Jimmy Gamboa and Therasurf. Those guys are killing it right now.”
 
Look for Perillo to be back on the Search in the coming months as well as competing in upcoming Pro Junior and ASP Star-rated events.
 
Rip Curl was stoked to be an official sponsor of the 4th Annual Malibu Invitational, and big thanks to the crew at Val Surf for their efforts in making this amazing event come to life.
