The Inertia

Allen Sarlo, keeper of the Malibu, was not to be outshone yesterday evening as Marie pulsed swell energy through Surfrider Beach. Laird Hamilton may have masterfully shot the pier wielding a giant paddle and snagged his share of set waves, but, alas, he wasn’t the only one to slalom the pilings. Fast forward to :18 if you’re one of those can’t-sit-still-types.

And if you’re not so much into pier-shooting, it sure is nice to watch swell fill into Malibu from the sky.

Unlike the crowds, it’s relaxing.

The pilings aren’t getting any further away. That’s for sure.


Only the best. We promise.
