A perfect day in Malibu...again! Start off the day with a morning surf. Then, Kyle, Brian, Brandon, and I get rowdy at first point. We end the evening with full on Golden Hour at third point.

On September 8th, while patrolling the City of Malibu, Lost Hills Sheriff deputies noticed an open, empty six pack of beer next to a parked vehicle. The vehicle had 1 occupant, in the driver’s seat.

Deputies pulled up to speak with the driver. While speaking to the driver, deputies noticed signs of intoxication. Deputies detained the driver pending a public intoxication investigation.

During the investigation, deputies saw in plain view, pepper spray and learned that the suspect is a convicted felon. Also found in the vehicle was brass knuckles, a loaded shotgun with the serial number scratched off, and a box of ammunition. The suspect was #arrested for multiple weapons charges including Possession of a Firearm, Possession of Ammunition, and Obliterate ID Markings on a Firearm.

Hurricane Kay delivered on her promise of epic swell to First Point, Malibu on Saturday, September 10. Setting the stage for a memorable day of super long, head-high waves for the eight highly charged teams who battled in the 10th annual SurfAid Cup Malibu.

In partnership with the Malibu Surfing Association (MSA), the SurfAid Cup turned one day of surfing into a lifetime of opportunity for SurfAid partner communities, while clocking some of the best surfing conditions possible at the famed Malibu point break. The eight participating teams, along with a Firewire-donated Velvet Hour longboard broke the $50,000 fundraising mark in support of SurfAid’s Mother and Child Health programs.

Super League Triathlon Star Vasco Vilaca was bitten by a seal while training at Zuma on Eve Of Malibu Triathlon.

News coming from Super League Triathlon

The 22-year-old Portuguese star, who finished second in Munich last weekend, was on a training swim with fellow athletes at Zuma Beach when the incident took place.

The seal bit Vilaca’s arm, leaving the athlete to try and get it off and then move away safely without distressing the animal.

Super League Triathlon were filming the athletes at the beach and captured dramatic footage of the incident.

Vilaca said: “I was just swimming in the ocean and was unlucky enough to swim towards where a seal was. It started swimming towards me and got very close and it felt like a dog smelling me.

“I tried to just slowly, without doing anything aggressive, push it away and at a certain point there was a strong wave that pushed it against me and then I pushed it more aggressively away because it was on me and then it got scared and bit my arm and wouldn’t let go.

“I tried to grab the teeth from under and open the mouth and get it away and wanted to swim away but I didn’t know what to do with the seal because I thought if I let go it would bite me again.”

Vilaca was able to swim to shore after a large wave dislodged the seal and was treated by lifeguards on the beach before being taken to a medical facility to be checked out. He received treatment for the wound before being discharged to race at the weekend.

He added: “When it bit me I had a wetsuit on but one of the teeth cut through and punctured through the skin. When I was grabbing the teeth from underneath and was grabbing the mouth was when I got a few cuts on my hands. I am happy to be ok.”
Rain on the way later Sunday through Monday. Close to a tenth of an inch for Los Angeles Counties. Here are the updated rainfall totals for SW California. You can see that very little is expected in LA County, but Malibu may get wet.

When high tides coincide with a good south swell, Malibu's iconic point breaks turn in to skim spots.

2022 Malibu 1st Point - MSA Surf Competition Sept 10, 2022

Over the weekend, sherrif deputies in Malibu had to break a window to rescue a dog (Jack), who was in distress and panting in the vehicle as it was quickly heating up. After announcements were made to try to find the owner, deputies had no choice but to break the window. After Jack was rescued, the owner (who was surfing) came out and was cited for 597.7 PC; leaving an animal unattended in a vehicle if the conditions would endanger the animal’s health or well-being.

As a reminder, during heat waves it is recommended to leave pets at home. Cars can heat up and quickly become a death trap for pets.

Malibu/Lost Hills Sherrif's Department has zero tolerance in these matters and will enforce all applicable laws.

From Real Surf Stories:

"Malibu, California, is known for the Duct Tape Vans Invitational, generations of classic longboarding from Miki Dora to Alex Knost, and the site of countless championships bringing together the best pro longboarders from all over the world. Today's video is not about that. It is about the local crew out there having a great time together on an average afternoon at Surfrider Beach."

Between the Code Red 2 Swell and the surf that Hurricane Frank brought the west coast we have had a wealth of good waves.
