Malibu is a cultural icon in American history. The epicenter of the 1960s surf culture, Malibu still represents a unique blend of freedom and fun found nowhere else in the world. Malibu truly is a surfer’s paradise. It has more than the killer waves and fabulous weather: Malibu’s Surfrider Beach was named the world’s first ever World Surfing Reserve in 2010. If you’re looking for a combination of history, surf culture, and awesome conditions, there’s no better place.
Malibu residents are proud of their surfing heritage, and are eager to welcome everyone from the experienced grand master surfers to the most inexperienced of schoolies. Surf shops, surf schools, and of course, tons of restaurants and bars line the beach, making it easy to find a place to chill after a long day of surfing, no matter how crowded the beach is.
Of course, it’s not all swells and shredding. Many of the local surf clubs are very active in local issues, especially those that have to do with preserving the beaches. Most have websites that keep members up to date on the latest events and competitions, and of course, realtime surfing conditions.
Surfing in Malibu is not just a sport, or even a lifestyle — it’s a heritage.
