Although the waves weren't adequate to surf while I was down, I was hoping to take advantage of surf board rental. $15 is a steal, so I'm hoping to get to it next time. Other that that, store has a lot of cute items, and the people were friendly. I bought a nice picture by a local artist while there,... More

We had seven kids taking surf lessons this past Tuesday. Everyone at this surf shop was friendly. The kids loved their (six!) instructors and had a blast. Do yourself a favor and look nowhere else for surf lessons - these people are local, friendly, patient, and knowledgable. And, as if there was not another reason to love them, they provide... More

My son was wanting a new surf board, so we took the ride to OC, Malibu's was first stop on his list. Lee's son was extremely helpful and extremely knowledgeable of what would and wouldn't work for him. After explaining all of that and searching both new and used boards, he finally found the perfect board, (yay!) we bought it... More

Owner Lee Gerachis is known to locals as the nicest guy in town, as well as the "voice of reason". Staffd by his surfin sons, Malibus Surf Shop is an aesthetically pleasant old school, steps from the surf boardwalk legend. Gr8 shoulder season deals. And they even toler8 kooks like me.

Best place for surf lessons! The store has awesome staff, good quality products and the perfect location. It's the best skate shop I've seen in OC, real skate and surf products, and not a gift shop.

I gave this place a bad review last year because of the staff. In the many years that I have went to OC I have never had a bad experience except last year (2013) because the staff was not helpful and seemed to be rude. This year (2014) they totally redeemed themselves to a 5 star shopping experience once again!... More

Young surfers work there and were very helpful even though we only bought 2 boggie board leashes. Went out of the way to show us what they had. Great guys!

The outside drew us in to shop and we were greeted by a friendly man. He chatted with us so had to pick up a Malibu sweatshirt! $54 for a light hoodie but truly one of a kind and not a mass produced "Ron Jon" check this store out!!! Also told us all about surf lessons
