Surfrider, Sunset Beach, and Point Dume are probably the most talked-about swells along the Malibu coastline, but you don’t necessarily need to be a pro to surf them (for Point Dume, you do need to have a key though, unless you paddle over from one of the adjacent beaches). Fortunately, LA is packed with surf instructors. Friends swear by Chris “Crash” Carson ([email protected]), who will swim out with you and push you in, making it an all-around fun and successful endeavor.
