Venice Berms

During the El NiƱo winter that spanned the years 1982 to 1983 Venice Beach was battered by storms that flooded Venice and destroyed the Pier.

Video: Beck Adler

ZJ team rider Beck Adler surfs the Venice Pier every morning, eats a breakfast burrito, goes to school and then practices baseball, football or chess, depending on the season. Here at ZJ, we learned our work ethic from Beck. Let us not forget to mention his tremendous surfing skills, as advertised by this great video.
New Wave of Venice Beach Surfers

Weekday mornings at Venice Beach the old guard at the Pier hand over the best waves to the young groms. Giving them valuable wave riding time before they head off to school, helping build a solid generation of young surfers.

Jan 24, 2016 - Santa Monica
It was a beautiful Sunday for our High School Division 1 SSS event LA to Santa Barbara at Santa Monica tower 22. With off shore winds that lasted till the afternoon it made for some fun clean waves in the 4 to 6 foot range. Oxnard had an outstanding performance running away with 78 total team points. 1st place in the Men’s Short board was Carson Dohan from Malibu. The winner of the Men’s Long board final was John Simon from Ventura. Winning the Women’s Short Board final handling the harsh low tide conditions was Ventura’s Jackie Regan. Taking 1st in the Women’s Long board division was Vienna Werner from Oak Park. Last, but certainly not least, taking the win in the Body board final was Collin Bossey from San Marcos. Thank you to all our sponsors who make this season possible.
