This is absolutely the best surf shop in OC! Not only do they know their stuff, they are genuinely the most kind people you could ever hope to meet. Once they are allowed to start giving surf lessons again, I highly recommend them!

My family of 4 took a 1 hour/8 am surf lesson and loved it. The Malibu crew helped to make this one of the highlights of our trip. Instructors were good with kids,and fun. Met at the beach, slapped on wet suits and did something that we've never experienced as a family. I used to be cool, so I pretended for 60 minutes and kids loved it. A good memory to recall for years, for sure. Totally.

Lee and the staff at Malibu’s are some of the nicest, most genuine and most knowledgeable people in OC when it comes to surfing and skating. Roland and Aviad provided myself and my kids with our first surf lessons today and to say they were spectacular is an understatement. They rock! They worked their tails off to make sure we caught as many waves as possible and had as much fun as possible. They delivered on both and then some. Treading water and swimming up and down the current to get us in position to ride a lot of waves. Not only do they know how to provide excellent instruction, they know how to work with kids while teaching them the basics. We are all hooked on this wonderful sport now. The guys work hard and deliver some great lessons so be sure to give them a tip, they truly deserve and earn it. The lessons are very reasonable for $60, you get an hour semi private lesson, beginner board to use and wetsuit. They keep the ratio of no more then 2 students per one instructor which was perfect for us. After a brief onshore introduction and dry practice, you are in the water riding waves within a minute. This was truly the highlight of our vacation! My only regret is not booking this surfing lesson with Malibu’s sooner. The store is also perfect, nestled in one half of a gorgeous beachfront cottage with apparel and accessories on the first floor and surf boards in the basement. It isn’t huge by any means but it doesn’t need to be. Lee was so welcoming, friendly and genuinely thankful for our business. He went out of his way to make my family feel special and answered all of our questions. If he doesn’t have something you want in the store, he most likely can get it fast. He made some calls to find a shirt my youngest son wanted. That is what I call fantastic customer service. We will definitely be back again and again. Thank you Lee, Aviad and Roland for making our vacation beyond memorable.

Malibu’s is an annual destination for my family when in OC. Great assortment of killer hoodies, ball caps, t-shirts, shorts, surf gear, art, surfboards, coffee...you name it, nobody touches Malibu’s. All that and, our daughter had surfing lessons with Roland and it was nothing short of amazing. Truly perfection and a lifetime memory. Sparked a passion in her and I think surfing lessons will now be a part of our annual experience as well. Lee and his team are among the nicest, most genuine people you will ever hope to meet. Never met a stranger and embody everything attractive and special about the surf culture. Could not recommend any higher.
