That was the most interesting on this stretch of beach. Some were just amazing at manoeuvring their boards with the waves. Well worth the stop.

Not the best beach in Malibu, but one of the better spots to sun, swim, eat and people watch. The waves are crowded so unless you can hold your own with the best be weary. Swimming is limited to the pier area, but typically it is calmer there so it is kid friendly. There are a few options to rent paddle boards, kayaks, etc. and it is really nice to get "out there" without having to lug around all the gear. Always an interesting crowd with great people watching and right next to the pier which has some really good dining and a few cool shops. Be warned, parking is a nightmare...

This beach is pretty calm below the pier, so not a lot of surfers here and excellent for playing and swimming.

This is a nice beach - but as the name suggest, its best for surfers. The waves also mean that it's not good for kids. Also there are restrictions on where swimmers can go.
Parking is hard, so come early if you want cheap parking.

I can’t surf and really wouldn’t want to but it is certainly cool to watch it. The waves were decent and many people knew exactly what they were doing and some not so much. It was fun to watch them all the same though.
