Below are the 2 skatepark concepts:

A car chase that started in the valley ended in Malibu prompting the closure of PCH on a busy afternoon.

The chase started about 1:55 p.m. at Ventura Boulevard and DeSoto Avenue, LAPD said. The driver of a work truck hauling a trailer allegedly hit several cars along Ventura Boulevard and ran a red light. They chased this fool over the canyon and onto PCH.

Shortly before 2:30 p.m., the driver stopped again along PCH and Carbon Canyon Road, and at least six LAPD units were waiting behind.






PCH was shut down from Sweetwater Mesa to Carbon Canyon after the driver stopped.

At 3:10 p.m., officers went up to the driver’s side of the vehicle with their guns drawn and forcibly removed the shirtless man from the truck.

Multiple rescues and 1 death due to the heatwave force the closure of all hiking trails in the Santa Monica Mountains for the holiday weekend.



On Saturday evening, Malibu Search Rescue made the announcement:

"Effective immediately, we have been advised that all trails in the Santa Monica Mountains will be closed through Labor Day. We responded to several heat related rescues today, including one hiker who unfortunately perished. PLEASE DO NOT HIKE IN THIS HEATWAVE."




Here's a recap of surf photos we got from a bunch of days at differentlocal spots.

Meet Lou Porter. A California Native, who loves the beach, surfing and sharing her stories and experiences everyone she encounters. Lou has been coming to Topanga Beach, just north of Los Angeles for years. She takes photos and videos of people surfing and posts them to Instagram and Facebook. Although not a surfer herself she has become a staple in many people's daily routines greeting them as they go in and out to surf.

Lou is committed, she follows the surf charts and on days when there is surf, makes her way from Chatsworth to the beach, a 20 mile commute over the Santa Monica mountains but when the surf is up Lou is there.

A couple of us surfers want to support Lou to get her an upgrade. We are looking to get people from the community to pool together to get her a new camera with a zoom and tripod, to support her. Most of all we want to share our appreciation and enthusiasm for her dedication to the beaches we surf at most.

Please donate!.




The Coronavirus Lockdown claims another local event.

"It is with great sadness, we announce that the Malibu Chili Cook-Off hosted by the Boys & Girls Club of Malibu will not be taking place this year."

The organizers of Malibu Chili Cook-Off recently made the announcement about the annual Labor Day Weekend Event.

"This was a very difficult decision that we hoped would come to a different outcome. 2020 has been a tumultuous year, no doubt, and with the recent spikes in cases and the near future being unpredictable, we feel this is the best decision in interest of our community’s health and safety. We have weighed all possible options, and we cannot hold an event that may further jeopardize the well-being of our community."

Classic longboard surfing at its finest filmed by Andrea Coleman.

Looks like the rumors and fears of another lockdown may be true, the City OF Malibu just announced these closures:

"Due to current COVID-19 conditions, and to protect the health and safety of visitors and City staff, Malibu Bluffs Park and the Temporary Skate Park will temporarily close effective immediately."

"We hope to reopen the Skate Park as soon as possible, and apologize for the inconvenience this may cause to our local skaters."

"Due to the closure, we have suspended reservations through our online booking system, and all current reservations in the system have been canceled."


City Manager Reva Feldman told KBUU News that Sheriff's deputies have been called to Bluffs Park "multiple times every day to try and enforce the rules. Skaters are not following the limit of people allowed in the skate park (12 max) and are not leaving when asked by city staff."

"Parents are refusing to wear masks and continue to congregate."

According to the National Hurricane Center, Tropical Storm Cristina will become a hurricane on Friday.

Unfortunately, Cristina’s small size is the main thing preventing it from producing a swell of significance for SoCal. We should see some small waves, waist-high and below, at the south-southeast exposed spots by the end of the weekend.

SurfAid has just uploaded a video from their 2018 SurfAid Cup event in Malibu. Perfect timing, due to the Coronavirus closures, we haven't had any recent events to feature.



On September 8, the SurfAid Cup Malibu 2018 saw super-fun waves roll down first point, and competitors took full advantage. Over $74,000 was raised for SurfAid's Mother and Child Health Programs, which make a huge difference to the lives of people in communities connected to us through surfing. SurfAid
