“Project Save Our Surf is in full support of the Malibu World Surfing Reserve, and is joining Save The Waves to help preserve one of our most sacred habitats: cherished surf breaks,” said actress, surfer and PSOS founder Tanna Frederick. “Malibu is being designated not only for its world class surf, but for its diverse wildlife, coastal ecosystem and native land as well.”
Malibu, California: Kicked off with a moving sunrise blessing led by Chumash leader Mati Waya and a paddle-out ceremony by about a hundred surfers on their boards, Malibu’s legendary Surfrider Beach was enshrined on Saturday as the first World Surfing Reserve. The designation establishes and celebrates the unique value of the Malibu coastal environment and aims to enhance efforts to maintain the pristine nature of the area for future generations.
