Enthusiasts From All Over the City Can Congregate in Malibu at Julie Cox's New Surf Club-Boutique Combo

Kathryn Romeyn | May 28, 2019 | Style & Beauty


Angeleno surfers without Malibu addresses just received a major gift from former pro boarder Julie Cox, who opened the first Southern California location of her Traveler Surf Club & Coastal Outpost on PCH this spring. The concept is brilliant, catering to those who make frequent pilgrimages to Malibu Surfrider Beach and other L.A. County beaches and need a place—available via monthly memberships or for per-day use—to store their boards, rinse off and hang while not hanging 10. Basic needs aside, building a community is the most important part of the Agoura Hills-raised surfer’s plan. “We love doing events that bring in a wide range of ocean lovers, soul surfers, nature enthusiasts and folks who are just interested in connecting with other adventure-minded people,” Cox says. Coming soon: Longboard technique and journaling workshops with The Surf Institute’s Carla Rowland and AllSwell’s Laura Rubin, respectively; a sound bath led by local wetsuit designer Kassia Meador; and yoga pop-ups, film events and artisan craft activations. The pilot board-share program operates like a library, where members can check out handshaped boards with Malibu ties. Patrons can also find swimsuits, eyewear, jewelry, home goods and books in the bright white and wood shop featuring West Coast labels by local craftsmen. “We carry my partner’s brand of Silver Lining Bespoke denim jackets lined with original artwork, and stained glass by L.A.’s Debbie Bean,” says Cox. “When the sun flows through it, you can’t help but smile.”
