World Surf League, Round 5, Wrap up: The Winners and Headliners of Lords of the Board Festival




In a perfect weekend, after a week of perfect waves and surfing weather, Finals Day and Day 2 of the Lords of the Board Festival made Sunday June 3rd the perfect ending of the The Ripcurl Pro Caravella Classic 2018.

First of all: The winners!
The 2018 Ripcurl Pro Caravella Classic has turned the both the 2018 Men's Championship Tour and the 2018 Women's Championship Tour upside down with 2 new overall leaders emerging after victories on Plage Le Soleil in Port de Caravella.

2018 Ripcurl Pro Caravella Classic: Women's Final: Tyler Wright (AUS) vs. Lakey Peterson (USA)
In a epic battle between the Aussie outsider and US Lakey Peterson it was very close, but the final ditch effort of Wright to steal the win from Peterson was not enough. The 2018 Caravella Classic Women's Champion is Lakey Peterson (USA) and with this victory she is also the new overall number 1 in the Jeep 2018 Women's Championship leaderboard.

2018 Ripcurl Pro Caravella Classic: Mens's Final: Michel Bourez (PYF) vs. Italo Ferreira (BRA)
After all of the big starts of the Men's Championship were already knocked out early on, it was Brazil's Italo Ferreira who was the abosule favorite in the final of the Caravella Classic. His contender was Michel Bourez from French Polynesia.
The 2018 Caravella Classic Men's Champion is Italo Ferreira  and, just as in the Women's Championship, he is also the new leader in the Jeep 2018 Men's Championship leaderboard.

Lords of the Board Festival 2018: The Headliners
And by perfect coincidence, the Finals Day was the same day as the final day of The Lords of The board Festival 2018. A festival to go coinside with the surf competition and attract more spectators to the WSL events all over the world.
The Lords of The Board Festival 2018 has a strong lineup with world class artists like Anne-Marie, Metronomy, Zedd, Evanescence, Chvrches and Two Door Cinema Club.

Saturday headliner: Run The Jewels

They released their acclaimed debut studio album, Run the Jewels, as a free digital download in 2013. This was followed by Run the Jewels 2 in 2014, which was also praised by critics. Their critically acclaimed third album, Run the Jewels 3, was released digitally in 2016; a physical release appeared in 2017.

Sunday headliner: Arcade Fire
On Sunday the headliner were the festival kings and queens of Arcade Fire.
