Surf Zuma Beach Reviews


Great place to surf. It's a fun beach break and also a great place to have a beach day

This is a punchy beach break in Malibu. It's very exposed to the wind so it can get blown out pretty easily, but its a fun summer time spot to spend a day at the beach.

Bathrooms, free parking on the street (and paid right there), plenty of space! Malibu has so many beaches to offer and this one is super easy to access! Note: I did not surf here, just went for a beach day and walk.

Great place to surf when the swell is up!

Make sure there's some west in the swell for it to be really working.
