It's usually very hot in September, and the water is always cold year round, but you can swim. Yes, some beaches you can hear the traffic. Malibu is huge, it really depends on which part of Malibu you are asking about.

I know many people who swim Malibu year round - with and without wetsuits. Women tend to handle the cold water better, more insulation, men often need wetsuits to be in the water long enough to call it an actual swim.

Wave jumping and wading is possible year round, it's often pretty warm. This site has air and water temp reports (upper right side):


Note that today the water and air temps were about the same (and not *that* cold; if it were warmer outside it would be ideal for swimming - and it may well be hot in September, even in Malibu, never can tell).
