Surfing in Malibu is a must for any visitor to California. Stay away from the locals (there are plenty of waves for everyone) and try regular surfing or stand up paddleboarding for a great day. Tips: Don't pay to park- there is plenty of street parking for free nearby. Wear a leash so your board doesn't get away from you when you wipe out. And wear a lot of sunscreen- even on an overcast day, you will get burned!
