Surfing history in Malibu

julie-cox-msa-zevweb.jpgThe Malibu Surfing Association, which formed at Surfrider Beach in 1961, held its annual MSA Classic this weekend. "They were too young to know—or to even give a hoot—that they were creating a culture that would come to define Southern California in the ‘60s and beyond," says a story on the group at ZevWeb. Julie Cox, shown, at 31 is one of the younger members. She started surfing at Malibu while a teenager in Agoura Hills and is now operations manager of the California Surf Museum in Oceanside.
