Another episode of Rider Shack Guide to Surfing Los Angeles, this one is about Surfrider.

Surfrider Beach is a world famous right-hand point-break with 3 different take-off zones offering a combination of incredible waves and constant crowds.


One person was killed early Friday when a sedan and sport utility vehicle collided on Pacific Coast Highway in Malibu. The crash was reported at about 6 a.m. near Tuna Canyon Road. Both vehicles sustained heavy front-end damage. Debris was scattered across several lanes.

The Los Angeles County coroner's office has identified a 17-year-old girl as the driver who died after a crash on the Pacific Highway Coast Highway in the Malibu area Friday morning. Dulce Maria Ramiro Sanchez of Los Angeles was killed when her car collided with another vehicle just after 6 a.m. near Topanga Canyon Boulevard, according to the California Highway Patrol.

The other driver was transported to a hospital in unknown condition, the L.A. County Sheriff's Department said. No other occupants were in either car.

The cause of the crash is under investigation.

The fatal collision prompted CHP to issue a SigAlert for both sides of the highway from Tuna Canyon Road to Topanga Canyon Road. PCH was closed for several hours before fully reopening shortly before noon.


Giovanni Douresseau is featured in an Episode of WSL Studios' Transformed web series.

At the age of 12, Giovanni Douresseau’s life consisted of the eight blocks of guns, gangs and violence surrounding his home in South Central, Los Angeles. After being exposed to surfing during the youth summer program Youth Mentoring, he fell in love with the sport and met a mentor who helped him completely move past his rough upbringing. Ten years later, Giovanni is committed to sharing the life-altering gift of surfing that was given to him when he needed it most.


“Surfing changed my life…this program changed my life. I was the fat kid: depressed; no motivation; living in a neighborhood full of gangs and headed nowhere. Then Youth Mentoring found me, gave me my mentor and invited me to surf with them. I finally felt like I belonged somewhere – like I mattered. I lost 120 pounds and found myself! Now I’m a surfer and a scholar athlete! I’m in college and so happy with where my life is going. Not only that, but hundreds of other youth can experience what I did… Will you help us?” - Giovanni Douresseau

The Malibu-based production company Planet Grande and the City of #Malibu invite all residents to attend a free community screening of the documentary film “Johnny Strange: Born To Fly,” Thursday, October 24, 7:30 PM to 9:30 PM at Malibu City Hall.

The 80-minute film documents Johnny Strange, who grew up in Malibu and became an international extreme sports athlete, known for mountain climbing, big wave surfing and extreme skydiving until he was tragically killed in a skydiving accident. The film was directed by Eamon Harrington and John Watkin and produced by Veronica Brady, all Malibu residents.

Johnny Strange rose to fame as the youngest person to climb the tallest mountain in each continent, including Mt. Everest when he was just 17 years old. When he discovered BASE jumping (skydiving from buildings, antennae, spans and earth) and wingsuit flying, he found his life’s true passion. Taken from hundreds of hours of Johnny’s personal video archive, and featuring intimate insights from family members, friends and Johnny himself, the film traces his journey from the world’s highest mountains to one of the world’s most dangerous sports, and the dramatic turn of events leading up to his final jump.

The screening will be followed by a question and answer session. The event is free to attend, but an RSVP is required. To RSVP or for more information, visit Born To Fly Documentary Screening or email Kriesgo@malibucity.org.



Come out and have a great night with Team Fuck Cancer ! Gonna be raising money for Young and Brave and help us go race! Gonna have some good music by GLUE LA and coldies provided by 805 Beer! A ton of stuff on silent auction and a boat load of smiles!

Happening Oct 25th at Casa Escobar Malibu

River Covey at Oceanside, Malibu, and Lower Trestles, California in 2019.


From Booty and Barrels:
First time surfing here in a few years because the sand has been all messed up, but it was kinda working. If you ever try to surf here be careful because if there is really ever size you can get thrown into the wall since it is so shallow and you cannot get under the waves."

Someone in Ventura had his longboard fly off his car, and it vanished. It's the blue board pictured above.

Here's the Craigslist posting about it:

Missing Surfboard* URGENT + Reward - $69 (Pierpont/Seaward)

My beloved log flew off my roof this afternoon (Sunday 9/22) at the Seaward 101 N onramp. I retraced my route seconds later and it's gone.. If anyone has this PLEASE contact me ASAP. Reward of course!

I just lost my other longboard 2 weeks ago, so this happened to me twice this month. If you have it, please have a heart and return it :)
