Summer 2020 COVID-19 Update 5/22/20
Dear Malibu Makos Family, We hope everyone is staying safe and healthy during this unprecedented time. We are currently awaiting summer camp guidelines from The Los Angeles County Board of Public Health before we accept any new registrations. We hope to offer some form of surf camp this summer as we feel the opportunity to experience the wonders of the ocean is more important for ALL of us more than ever. Our main priorities are the safety and well being of our kids, staff and parents and will follow the guidelines set forth thoroughly. We will keep you informed on any updates here or you can call 310-317-1229 for info. We hope to you at the beach!
