Surf Advisory Issued This Weekend in Malibu

Surfer Dylan Goodale rides a wave during the 7th Annual Malibu Invitational benefiting the Young and Brave Foundation last weekend at First Point Malibu. 

A high surf advisory will be in affect at Malibu beaches throughout the weekend, causing large swells of up to nine feet and strong rip currents.

The southern swell was approximately 900 miles off the coast on Friday morning and downgraded into tropical storm Lowell, according the National Weather Service.

Surf will likely remain around three to five feet throughout the weekend. Beachgoers are advised to stay near lifeguard towers and if caught in a rip current, swim parallel to the shore.

Cloudy mornings will dissipate into sunny skies with a high of 72 degrees on Saturday and Sunday. Winds are expected between 5-10 MPH in the afternoons and the low will reach 60 degrees.

Malibu Presbyterian Church will host an early morning women’s hike at 8 a.m. at Malibu Creek State Park on Saturday, Aug. 23.

Deputy Dave from the Los Angeles Sheriffs Department will visit Bank of Books for story time at 10:30 a.m. on Saturday.

The whole family is welcome to Doggie Date Night on Saturday Aug. 23, at 4:30 p.m. at Malibu Bluffs Park, a free outdoor movie screening and presentation by Sky High Flying K-9 stunt show. Don’t forget to bring your dog!
