zuma sucks - zuma's awful...blown out, cold, closed out, and often crowded....i always have a better time at county line because it's a much better shaped wave, and cause mlo doesn't harass you..
your best bet at surfing in malibu is county line.

locals - what out boy's and girls- this place brings back memories of the MLO - it's the greatest place in the world, but the 'locals only' vibe lingers.

Exactly like a 'Roach Motel' coz u can check always in, but never out! - There is something wrong with some beach breaks in Cali, this 1's a prime example of that bottom disorder, pulling in is usually Ok with virtually no way out. U can always take your chances with the belligerent/unruly locals of Trancas beach, slightly north of Zoo-ma's booma's, the walled sections there r slightly more ruler-edged; in contrast with the infamous local Trancash'tudes toward incoming Zumer-goons!
