Teenagers went to Third Point at Malibu Surfrider Beach on Thursday, July 17, for Surf’s Up, an unofficial surf camp for kids involved in the youth group at Malibu Presbyterian Church. 

The weekly event is organized by Mike Morgan, youth director for the church. While he is not a certified instructor, Morgan uses his 17 years of surfing experience to teach kids the basics, such as how to properly stand on the surfboard and get over a wave.
