I had my first surf since arriving in California at a beach by the name of Leo Carrillo State Beach in Malibu California. The waves were less than average but I was desperate to get in the water for a paddle. Leo Carrillo is a fun cobble stone bottom right hander that breaks next to a huge rock. Some of the bigger sets break off the side of the rock and others hit the rock and split into a wedge. The line-up was way overcrowded but I guess that is expected in this area. Leo Carrillo is a state beach so if you want to park in the parking lot it’s a $12 flat rate so I parked on the side of the Pacific Coast Hwy for free along with a lot of other people. The beach itself is great and there are plenty of rocks and caves to explore, also its a nice beach for a picnic. After I surfed my girlfriend and I kicked back on the sand and enjoyed a few IPA’s while watching the sun go down over the ocean. Good Times! 


Leo Carrillo State Park is a state park of California, United States, and a component of Santa Monica Mountains National Recreation Area preserving 1.5 miles of beach at the foot of the Santa Monica Mountains. Address: 35000 Pacific Coast Hwy, Malibu, CA 90265.
