It is no secret that the Malibu real estate community is home to some of the most famous surf spots in the world. For the past 28 years, the Oceanside Longboard Surfing Club has hosted one of Malibu’s most popular surfing competitions. The competition is open to all longboarders of all ages, many coming from within the local Malibu community. Proceeds from the competition are donated to non-profit organizations. This year the competition will take place on August 10th through August 12th at Oceanside Pier.
Founded in 1984, the Oceanside Longboard Surfing Club contributes greatly to the local community by promoting amateur longboard surfing and spreading awareness of Malibu’s longboard surfing history and culture. The club puts a high priority on making all of their events and activities family-friendly. This has been crucial in their success at stimulating interest in all of their activities from longboarding history to ocean conservation activities.
Membership to the Oceanside Longboard Surfing Club is open to anyone that supports the club’s mission statement: to promote longboard surfing among its members and the local community in a family oriented atmosphere. The club meets monthly to plan events that support their mission within the Malibu community. Six times a year, club members participate in intraclub surfing contests. The club uses the contests as a tool to gauge placement of surfers, according to their surfing ability.
