Hello everyone, time to get ready for the 11th annual MDW.  Thanks to everyone who made it out last year, even with the last minute change due to the fire.  Anabel Anderson almost took down the whole field, Max First just held her off on his prone unlimited.  We stepped it up a bit on the BBQ and had Thousand Oaks Meat Locker cook up some tri-tip and chicken.  Would love to see everyone make it back out for a real windy one, just got a feeling.  See you on Sat. May 3rd.

2014 Malibu Downwinder information

With a 2:00pm race start time and a Southeasterly course, we are hopeful for a fairly reliable 10-20 knot Northwest wind to assist us in surfing the approximate 7 mile course. The start will be from the water at Mugu State Beach, just on the other side of Mugu Rock. The finish will be at Leo Carillo State Beach at the west end of the North beach parking lot. Awards and a beach BBQ with refreshments will immediately follow the race. A limited number of campsites are available for Friday and Saturday nights at Leo Carrillo State Beach and Sycamore Cove State Beach. Contact Gary Fortune if interested in camping at

All proceeds for this race will be donated to the Santa Monica Mountains Natural History Association and Wishtoyo Foundation to help support the Leo Carillo State Lifeguards and State Junior Guard Program.
