With less than a month left of official “gromhood,” Rachael Tilly, 17 of Capistrano Beach was presented with her 2015 World Surf League Women’s World Longboard Championship trophy at the annual WSL Awards, March 7, on the Gold Coast of Australia.

Tilly was honored along with last season’s other WSL professional surfing champions: Men’s World Longboard Tour champion Piccolo Clemente (Peru), shortboard World Championship Tour winners Adriano de Souza (Brazil) and Carissa Moore, and WSL Big Wave World Tour champion Greg Long of San Clemente.

Tilly’s title made her the youngest WSL world champion ever.
