The Inertia

I’d bet you’ve never seen a banana and ninja turtle hang ten, a Pikachu head dip or Minnie Mouse styling on a classic Anderson log. Coincidentally, First Point, Malibu was taken over recently by monsters, ghouls, super heroes, a nose riding banana and the cutest Minnie Mouse ever.

Malibu Surfing Association hosted the annual “Costume Cup Expression Session Spooky Surf-Off” at First Point, Malibu, California, under an appropriately ominous, gloomy sky. Unwashed throngs of local ghouls and monsters turned out in full regalia to devour donuts, shred the gnar and compete for best wave and best costume.
