“Surf ’s up” at Malibu’s largest surfboard and beachwear swap meet, held in Paradise Cove on Saturday.

Organized by Malibu local Ted Silverberg for the past 10 years, this eclectic swap meet has grown into a community event, with a variety of items on sale including bathing suits and eco friendly clothing, hand-crafted jewelry and crystal healing.

The last two events raised several hundred dollars for the Malibu Sharks Surf Team — both middle and high school.

“I have organized this fun event for years to bridge my love of surfing and charity work. Malibu is ‘SURFING’ to the world,” Silverberg shared in an email to The Malibu Times. “We bring the community together, ‘recycle’ sports and beach items and have a great day of ‘old guy’ Malibu surfer reunions. We offer an opportunity for young surfers to ‘talk story’ with those who have been surfing 50 years or more! I am also proud that 100 percent of the food sales go to the charity,” he said.

Silverberg also donated surfboards for kids.

“My neighbors in Paradise Cove are my best customers: They’re the first to see my new stuff, ‘cause they’ll just knock on my door! The beachy, eclectic style fits the Cove’s vibe perfectly!” participant Susan Mintz said. The Paradise Cove swap meet is held two times a year; the next one will be sometime around November.

“Everyone can be a part of the Surf Swap; it is well supported by numerous Malibu individuals and businesses. We allow anyone with products that have the Malibu beach lifestyle to participate,” Siverberg said.

The Malibu Times is the first newspaper in Malibu, serving the community since 1946.
