|Lifeguard Tower Zero - Western Malibu, CA|
Los Angeles County lifeguard Cal Porter retired from the profession in 1976. Some years later he penned a memoir of sorts on the interwebs relaying tales of Malibu from the 1940's onward. I managed to transcribe some of Mr. Porter's writings before they were gobbled up in an expansionist's promotion. Speaking of Zero Point, Mr. Porter said "the place was just too good... The lobster and abalone diving were almost as good as the surfing". Huzzah Mr. Porter.
