Malibu's LaLanne Surf just put out this video of these two surfing Topanga.

"There are a hand full of surfers that know the feeling of the Gemini surfboard created by shaper Jeff Alexander in the mid 90's. Shaper and Malibu local Jon LaLanne started making the board 10 years ago in an effort to revive the design that Surfer magazine snubbed and never rode the board.Kelly Slater held the board for hours at the 2003 surfer poll awards. Tomo created his Vader off the Gemini and shapers like Stretch , Mickey Munoz, Dane Hantz from Vulcan and Scott Anderson were inspired by the design..." - LaLanne Surf

Dont miss Dogtown Rumble, the last one was 2 years ago! Once again Odd Squad Car Club is hosting their beach front car show taking place in the Venice Beach parking lot. Lots of cool cars and trucks show up at each show, and being at the beach, many are surf rides. IT's held in the Venice Blvd parking lot at Venice Beach.

If the cops decide to shut it down, it will turn into a Rebel Run up to Netptune's Net.

Check out one of the previous shows here DogTown Rumble 6 Coverage .


Surflies reports:

Tropical Storm Ivo continues to gradually strengthen and is currently expected to produce fun to possibly medium-size surf for Southern California and Northern Baja. The official forecast from the National Hurricane Center indicates that Ivo will strengthen to a hurricane later today just as it slows down and takes on a very favorable track for SoCal swell production.

Ivo is currently strengthening as it tracks to the west. The tropical cyclone is expected to slow considerably and take a NNW track late today and Friday as it peaks in intensity.
Strength: Maximum sustained wind of 55 knots.
Location/Movement: Roughly 550 miles SSW of Cabo tracking west (270 degrees) at 10 knots.
Watches/Warnings/Threats: None at this time.

Surflies reports: Surf is trending up for California mid week, with new SW swell and SSE swell. Not to be left out, the NPAC also delivers a pulse of modest WNW energy as well. Combo beachbreaks should offer fun, peaky surf. Also, we've got some action going on in the tropics, which could contribute some swell later in the week.
