One of the most promising new talents in the global surfing community, 20-year-old Soleil Errico matches her phenomenal riding ability with extraordinary dedication and drive. After spending most of her childhood honing her skills on the shores of Malibu and Kauai, the champion longboarder made history in 2018 by becoming one of the two youngest athletes ever to win the World Surf League (WSL) World Title. With her latest triumphs including partnering with Kelly Slater’s Firewire Surfboards to create her own line of signature boards, Errico brings an exquisite balance of power, precision, and sophisticated grace to every aspect of her surfing.
With her most recent wins including the 2019 Relik Longboard World Tour, Errico joined forces with Firewire in 2020 and quickly set to work on designing her signature boards in collaboration with famed surfer CJ Nelson. “CJ’s been coaching me for the past year, and he’s really helped me find my style and become the surfer I am now,” says Errico, who names Nelson as her number-one inspiration. Not only the first female surfer signed to Firewire, Errico has proved instrumental in fulfilling the brand’s mission of expanding into the longboard market. Made with state-of-the-art Thunderbolt Technology to enhance performance and improve board control, the Soleil Series launched in late 2021 with two gorgeously designed models: the Velvet Hour (a lavender/blush-hued board meant for riding in all conditions) and the Sunkist (a bright-yellow model whose performance-focused design allows for nimble maneuvering through more sizable waves).
