Racist Attack On Black Surfers At Manhattan Beach



Two black surfers got confronted by a hostile racist surfer while in the water at the Manhattan Beach Pier.

A brief rundown of what happened was posted to the Black Sand Instagram Page:

"This racist woke up & chose violence. He called me & Gage a n**ger in the water at Manhattan Beach Pier and repeatedly splashed me in the face. Fortunately, he’s the one who has to sleep with those demons, not me. I want to see more allyship, regardless...I’ll be right back out there tomorrow, and the next day, and the next day. Im so inspired by what transpired today, it feels like a sign to continue surfing with purpose, and hopefully inspire you all to open / kick down doors into those spaces that you may not feel welcome into. Not just surfing, but whatever that place is that resonates with you. Own that shit, you belong. - Brick​"

The full rundown, including what lead up to the confrontation, was then posted in this video by the two surfers involved:



As their posts went viral, the surf community has showed these two surfers a huge outpouring of love and support.

"Our existence is resistance. thank you all for the outpour of love, support, and words of encouragement from EVERY human being. Beautiful to see the surf community and those beyond it to be able to unite and stand together with us on this. It’s bigger than surf. Thank you again. Love remains undefeated." They wrote via their latest post on the Black Sand Instagram Page

  1. As Brohuna I have seen this behaviour from mine damaged endives before; It is very SAD!
    Racist behavior is a mental illness and/or disease like the Corona Virus.It was wiped out by a cure and the cure for hate is love. I love those that hate me like their were mentally damaged children born with defect brains.
