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
