Tony’s Blog
I’ll freely admit that I’m nerd when it comes to technology and one could easily make that assumption when you walk into my Riviera office where we have several terminals set up with the latest Apple computers amongst other techy toys. Whereas there is a level of acceptance with my inner McFly, I am rather embarrassed about how excited I get when a new iPhone is released. If you’ve ever had a chance to watch an Apple keynote (and I don’t suppose many of you do..), viewers are witness to an extremely methodical yet simplistic message by the world’s largest company. Although smart phones have the ability to be extremely intimidating, Apple delivers the message by exploiting the emotion of users and the ultimately the movement of a society. Playing on emotions can be easily construed as a taboo way to conduct advertising however if you’ve ever heard the reaction a Buyer or Seller makes when they’ve got the news about their deal, you’re soon to realize it all about emotions.

OCEAN TRAILS / TRUMP NATIONAL GOLF COURSE
BY MAUREEN MEGOWAN / RE/MAX ESTATE PROPERTIES

ASSOCIATE PUBLISHER Christopher Matalone

SENIOR STAFF PHOTOGRAPHER
Paul Jonason

In the 1950’s, Edward Zuckerman, with a partner, purchased a sloping 150 acre garbanzo bean field rising up from the cliffs of the ocean on the Palos Verdes Peninsula adjacent to San Pedro. In 1970, Ken Zuckerman’s father had tried to build on his farmland 1,200 apartment units, a 200-room resort hotel, and a nine-hole golf course. This massive planned development prompted the formation of the City of Rancho Palos Verdes. The new government placed a moratorium on development, then downzoned the Zuckerman’s property to require that all new homes be built on one-acre lots. Based on these restrictions, it didn’t make sense to build, so the Zuckerman’s sat on their property until 1989, when Ed Zuckerman’s sons, Ken and Bob, with a partner, formed a joint venture for an additional 100 acres from developer Barry Hon to accumulate a total of approx. 260 acres, with close to two miles of ocean frontage. The Zuckerman family spent years working with the City of Rancho Palos Verdes and various environmental groups to create a plan which would provide native sagebrush habitat for a rare bird, the California gnat-catcher. The plan was initially approved in 1994, however construction was delayed by years of lawsuits by environmental groups. The Zuckerman brothers created a new limited partnership in 1997, buying out Barry Hon. Development of the Ocean Trails Golf Course finally began in 1998. Ultimately, out of the Zuckerman’s 260 acres, 75 were devoted to 75 home sites. The golf course is built on 100 acres (compared with 150 for a typical course), but 20 of those were required to be covered with regrown sagebrush. 105 acres were reserved for sagebrush, public parks, or pathways. Unfortunately, on June 2, 1999, just before its scheduled July 2nd opening, a large portion (approx. 17 acres) of the cliff-top 18th fairway slipped towards the ocean creating a huge chasm. The project, which had been originally budgeted for $126 million, required another $61 million to repair the land slide damage (paid for by insurance proceeds). For months, the course operated on a temporary basis as a 15 hole course. The property was then tied up in various lawsuits, including a claim by Zuckerman that a water line running under the property had burst, causing the land slide, however another potential cause was discovered, that an ancient landslide, previously undetected, may have been the cause of the land slide. Ultimately, the Zuckerman’s were forced to declare bankruptcy, and the property was taken over by Credit Suisse , the lender on the property, in February 2002. In August 2002, Donald Trump acquired the Ocean Trails project for a reported $27 million. Subsequently, Trump made substantial improvements. The course finally opened as an 18 hole course on January 20, 2006. Including the money Trump has invested in the course and the original investment by the Zuckerman family, the project has expended in excess of a reported $300 million, clearly making the course the most expensive golf course ever constructed.

giovanni altamura
south bay brokers WRIT TEN BY HEI DI WALTER
Giovanni Altamura graduated from the University of Southern California in the spring of 2007 and since then has been working with his father, John Altamura, in the family’s real estate business. An avid fan of sports, which he says brings out the best in people, he’s always been active and competitive. “At USC,” he says, “I was a four-year letterman and captain of the men’s volleyball team. Being the captain of those teams taught me the dedication, leadership, and communication skills that I have continued to use in my business life at South Bay Brokers.” A lifelong resident of Manhattan Beach, Giovanni Altamura has attended all of the celebrated public schools in this affluent community including as Pacific Elementary, Manhattan Beach Intermediate and Mira Costa High School. As such, he has a vast experience to draw upon when making local Manhattan Beach and Hermosa Beach real estate decisions. “Since starting my Real Estate career with South Bay Brokers in 2007, I have been fortunate enough to see the market in all of its stages, from the peak in 2007 to the bottom in 2008-09. I understand what ‘real value’ is in today’s market. I look forward to using that experience and knowledge for my future business.” His father began in real estate in the South Bay in 1986, and Giovanni followed in his dad’s footsteps. “My real estate interest was sparked back in my sophomore year of high school,” he remembers. “I saw how much fun he had working in the town he lived in, all of the people he met and became friends with and the great stories he would tell me about clients he helped.” Giovanni Altamura cites the beach, the restaurants, the friendly neighbors and great people as some of the aspects of the beach cities that draw so many homeowners. “We are a short distance to LA, the desert, mountains and LAX,” Giovanni lists. “This is an outdoor community where you are always seeing people enjoy being outside doing various activities such as surfing, riding your bike along the Strand, jogging on the Green Belt and swimming in the ocean.” When asked what the current micro-trends in Manhattan Beach and Hermosa Beach real estate, Giovanni describes a lack of inventory, surplus of buyers, multiple offers and all-cash buyers. “Properties are selling within two weeks and in all price ranges. In addition, spec-build new construction is popping up over town and pre selling - a true testament to the stability of this market here in Manhattan and Hermosa Beach.” Giovanni is excited about his growing clientele and new listings. His new Tree Section construction will be on the market just as summer officially ends. The plantation-style home is a 5 bedroom, 5 bathrooms at $2,749,000. “I also have a gorgeous Hill Section lease available,” he says. “4 bedrooms, 3 bathrooms all on one level with a large bonus room and big ocean views.” Giovanni is also building 12 town-home style units in El Segundo which will be available in the summer of 2014. While we know inventory is tight and home values are going up, Giovanni lends his expertise to this audience by letting us know that the most important thing people planning on purchasing or selling property in the beach cities should know is that the market moves very quickly. “You have to be aware most properties could have multiple offers, and some going over the list price. Having said that, it is crucial to be pre-approved with a lender. That’s half of the transaction right there!”

craftsmanship at every step

With over 20 years of building experience, we find that the highest level of customer service is just as important as the utilization of the highest quality materials and workmanship. Having worked with many top architects and designers, we are confident in our ability to make the building process as seamless and enjoyable as possible.

n a city as affluent, beautiful, and community-oriented as Redondo Beach, the Redondo Beach Fisherman’s Wharf and King Harbor embody the traditions and culture of Southern California’s prosperous coastal towns; they are icons of its coveted beach lifestyle and small-town heritage. The Fisherman’s Wharf draws millions of visitors each year, including locals, who consider it one of the premier shopping, dining, and family destinations on the Southern California coast. Redondo Beach has long been known as a bustling tourist and resort town. From its earliest days, visitors would flock from all over the world to visit the marina, while photographers and painters immortalized it time and again in their artistic odes to Southern California. In 1956, the King Harbor Marina, named after California Representative Cecil R. King, was built. The wooden Monstad Pier, built by Captain Hans C. Monstad to accommodate new shoreline tourist industries like pleasure-boating, soon followed. The current pier construction was last renovated in 1995, but the reinforced concrete structure is in the process of undergoing a massive and complete transformation to accommodate a 21st Century Redondo Beach and its energetic local economy. The new designs from developer CenterCal include a posh new Shade boutique hotel, a high-end movie theater, successful and popular chain restaurants, and an improved two-lane road connecting Torrance Boulevard to Harbor Drive to facilitate bike and foot traffic. New open spaces with wider sidewalks and a new boardwalk would replace the current Seaside Lagoon with a free, accessible beach, encouraging visitors to stay longer and to bring their families. Today the Redondo Beach Pier is poised to embark on a new era of prosperity with the investors who share a vision to be a part of the new Redondo Beach Waterfront.

An investor has a unique opportunity to lease the former Maison Riz to a new operator or an owner/user, and to create a new restaurant at this premier and coveted location with spectacular views from the Palos Verdes Peninsula to Malibu and all the way north to Point Dume. The entire property, which runs along the southwest section of King Harbor, includes 11 trendy shops, offices, and restaurants totaling roughly 17,000 square feet of potential success. The current lease structure for existing tenants includes percentage rents paid in addition to minimum base rents. This significant potential income will increase as the major Pier renovations boost local economic conditions, property values, and draw tourists and locals eager to enjoy the upgraded Pier’s new stores, walkways, architecture, and dining.

DETAILS
The Monstad Pier property represents a rare opportunity to acquire a Southern California waterfront asset with historical and cultural significance. The area is on the brink of an economic boom due to the renovation of King Harbor and the Redondo Beach Waterfront, making The Monstad Pier property an ideal investment. The owner/ user restaurant prospect in a prime waterfront location on a historic pier is almost unprecedented in the current beach cities real estate market.

THE PROPERTY
Strategically located in the section of King Harbor known as The Monstad Pier, adjacent to this planned, major redevelopment, includes the former location of the popular Maison Riz Restaurant, with 6500 sq. ft. of contiguous space on King Harbor, a complete commercial kitchen and full bar. Restaurant patrons flock to enjoy the stellar sunsets and crashing whitewater waves visible from the dining room windows. The Maison Riz was formerly the famous Tony’s Fishmarket Restaurant, owned by the Trutanich Family (the current owners of the successful Tony’s on the Pier). Tony Trutanich built the property in 1969 and didn’t sell Tony’s Fishmarket until 2008. Over the years, celebrities and tourists have filled the dining tables and bar stools. The iconic interiors and exteriors of the restaurant have been used as sets for reality TV shows and major Hollywood motion pictures.

Jack Craig

PLUGGED STOOL

WRIT TEN BY QUINN ROB ERTS

Since he became a designer, Jack Craig has been interested in making pieces that are transformative.That’s literally the case with the Plugged Stool, where he heats PVC water mains and then manipulates them down to their raw material, before converting it into seating. “I’ve always had an interest in odd, modern materials,” Craig said. “Traditional materials have been expanded upon. You have more opportunities to create something unique with unusual materials.” A one-man operation in his studio in Detroit, Craig begins the process of creating each stool by gradually heating the PVC with an industrial space heater at about 230 degrees Fahrenheit. After the PVC becomes pliable, Craig only has a five minute window to take action and drive a piece of wood into the middle and strap it down to create the stool. Because of the material Craig is using, no glue is needed to make sure the wood stays attached to the base. Once it cools and is then leveled and fine-tuned, the Plugged Stool is ready to be sold.

“It is all about the process and the discovery of what the materials can do,” Craig said. “It is different every time.” While Craig is able to make the stool by feel now, one wrong move and a day’s work could be all for naught. That is why Craig heats the PVC at a low, gradual temperature no higher than 250 degrees. The PVC base only comes in white, but customers can choose from walnut, white oak and ash wood on the seat of the stool, which costs $650. Thanks to its durable and industrial design, the Plugged Stool has found interested customers across the globe. Getting the most interest in bigger cities throughout the United States like San Francisco, Chicago and Miami, Craig also has customers outside the country. They are as close as Canada and Mexico and as far as Russia. “Every time I am working in the studio, I think about creating things that will provoke a reaction,” Craig said. “It should be compelling and handcrafted.” For more info, visit: jackpcraig.com

WHERE IS THE MARKET GOING?
LOCAL LENDING EXPERTS OPINIONS
Manhattan Beach – 2013 certainly has seen some great things happen in the real estate market for both buyers and sellers here in South Bay. With interest rates at historical lows, combined with the recent price drops from 2008, affordability for buyers is at an all-time high. Sellers have seen their properties appreciate as much as 20% over the past year due to the shortage of available homes. Everyone wants to know what’s next! Ed Kaminsky of the Kaminsky Real Estate Group in Manhattan Beach sat down with two of best loan officers in the South Bay to hear their perspectives on the current and future of the real estate market: Ron Goodlin from Bank of Manhattan, a local bank and lender, and Gary May from Wells Fargo, a local lender from a National Bank.
KAMINSKY Ron, where do you see interest rates going in the next 12-24 months? GOODLIN I foresee a slight dip in rates of about 1/4 to 3/8 within the next year but then a steady rise after that. The rates will depend on economic news, i.e. Syria, as well as the Federal government and how they handle mortgage backed securities. KAMINSKY It has been stated that the Federal government has identified 200 new rules for lenders, yet only 80 of them have been implemented. What effect, if any, will it have on borrowers as these new rules continue to be implemented? GOODLIN I believe the popular interest-only loans will likely go away over the next year. There is talk of eliminating Freddie Mac and Fannie Mae, which could have a compound impact on lending. KAMINSKY Do you think a third party may come into the marketplace to buy the loans if Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac go away? GOODLIN Each of the loans we have been putting through is what we call “A paper”, meaning they are very high-quality buyers with ample assets, credit , down payment and income. It is very likely an investment company would and could step up to purchase this type of “paper”. KAMINSKY If you were speaking to a buyer today and they were debating whether to buy now or save a few more dollars and buy next year, what would you tell them? GOODLIN My concerns are that interest-only options are going away, and rates are still at historical lows and are likely to be higher next year. Buying now is what I am advising to all financially-qualified buyers. KAMINSKY What, if anything, would you like to say or add that relates to today’s market? GOODLIN You hear a lot that it is hard to get a loan; the truth is that there are plenty of investors making loans right now. You do have to provide more paperwork today than before, but with the rates where they are it is a terrific time to buy and get a new loan. KAMINSKY Thanks Ron, you are always so insightful, having been through so many ups and downs in this area. I appreciate your time and the information you have provided to all of us. KAMINSKY How do you advise buyers or seller to choose their real estate agent? MAY Two things: it is important that they find out about their agent’s track record to be sure they have the experience to represent them in this environment of tough negotiations, increased paperwork and government regulations and the myriad of obstacles that can get in the way of a sale or purchase; the second is to be sure that the agent has a strong relationship with a lender because the quality of the lender is as important as the agent in order to get through some very tough transactions today. KAMINSKY So who would you recommend today? MAY Just you, Mr. Kaminsky. Actually I am just kidding! There are a number of great agents in the area, but I would definitely highly recommend you. I have been impressed with how you have handled your business and your clients since we have been working together. KAMINSKY What is your opinion on whether a buyer should buy or not buy at this time? MAY There is no time like the present. Even though prices went up recently, they have not reached the previous high. Interest rates are still substantially lower than they were at the peak. Based on that, it is more affordable to finance a home today than at the peak. It’s a great time to buy. KAMINSKY What advice would you give to a home seller right now? MAY The time seems great based on the low inventory in the market; equity has returned that was lost to homeowners. It feels like a great time to sell. KAMINSKY What else would you like to say to a buyer or seller in today’s market? MAY There is still a lot of money to lend. Wells Fargo is loaning in the non-conforming market right now. There are more paperwork and questions, but the money is still relatively easy to come by. KAMINSKY How do you think the current interest market will affect the future of the local real estate market? MAY The local market is such a micro-climate that it is not as affected as the larger Los Angeles market by interest rates, mainly because the loans in the South Bay are typically out of the conforming limits and those interest rates are more stable. Those loans, being larger, are typically more stable and less risky for banks and therefore rates don’t move quite as much and have less impact on the expensive areas of town. KAMINSKY You mentioned that there was going to be a large layoff at Wells Fargo Bank; is that a sign of things to come? MAY Wells Fargo did give notice to approximately 2300 employees; most of them are in the processing positions for loans at the bank and were servicing clients who were refinancing their loans. With interest rate changes, the volume of refi’s are down. Some of Wells Fargo clients were actually able to refinance 2 or 3 times over the last couple of years. Loan officers that only focused on refinance clients do not have the workload they once had. Those like me, that focus on new loans for buyers, have a more stable position at the bank.

RON GOODLIN Bank of Manhattan w 310.798.5514 | c 310.930.5762 RGoodlin@bankofmanhattan.com

GARY S. MAY Wells Fargo Home Mortgage w 310.426.3800 | c 310.808.8453 Gary.S.May@wellsfargo.com

KAMINSKY Thanks Gary! That is very nice of you to say; thanks for recognizing that. You are not so bad yourself. And you know what those old time realtors always say: Please God, give me one more good real estate market, I promise I won’t screw it up. Thanks for educating all of us. Good luck and good rates.

IT MAY TAKE A VILLAGE TO RAISE A CHILD,
but it took a child to get Manhattan Beach architect Stephen Jones to trade an ocean view for a yard. Shortly after finishing his Master of Architecture degree at UCLA, Jones and his girlfriend (now wife) moved into a tiny apartment on the Strand, where the couple fell in love with Manhattan Beach and the coastal lifestyle.

SWEET DIGS

For the longest time while we were living in El Porto, we didn’t know

anything existed east of Highland,” Jones jokes. “We got married and had a kid, but when he turned 1, we realized we needed a backyard.

Jones and his wife crossed Highland and began searching in the Tree Section, wondering if they could afford even just a small home. The couple stumbled upon a two-bedroom, one-bath bungalow built in the 1940s, shocked by its small size. “I thought, no way am I going to live in this tiny house and pay this much,” recalls Jones. But one look at the backyard and its gnarled pepper trees, and his architect mind envisioned a tree house for his son. Looking back, Jones realizes he was in the right place at the right time with regard to real estate prices. The couple purchased the home for a little over $400,000, not knowing how much the market would appreciate in a short time. “We lived in the little house for four years,” relates Jones. “Being an architect, I tried to convince my wife that we had to do something with it, but she’s the financially prudent one.” Thinking the real estate market had peaked in 2000, the couple considered trading up for a bigger home. “The logic would be to buy the next level up, and try to find something under a million, but it was someone else’s remodel,” relates Jones. “We’re talking old plans with rooms added on, totally hacked, and making no architectural sense.” The other alternative was to buy a brand-new home, but the prices were beyond the couple’s budget. For a while they considered selling the home and renting another one, but Jones wanted to stay. He describes his almost comical attempts to convert his wife to his way of thinking. “I kept doing designs and showing my wife renderings. I even built little models and did all these things to entice her, but she barely gave me the time of day,” he laughs. “It was always, ‘Oh, that’s nice.’” Everything changed the day Jones’s wife came home and told him she was pregnant with their daughter. “I was surprised and excited about the new child, but the next words out of her mouth were, ‘I guess we need to do the house now.’ I was almost as excited to hear that news as I was to hear about my child,” Jones exclaims. Jones threw himself into the project right away, with the goal of having the house ready in time for his daughter’s birth. “I built the house in eight months,” he says. “My son called it the ‘fix-it’ house.” Construction began in April 2002. Jones’s daughter was born in September of that year, and the family moved into their home in December. The original designs Jones drew while trying to convince his wife they needed to remodel had to be scaled back to accommodate their budget, and Jones himself ended up playing the role of general contractor to save money. “I don’t contract all the time, but I know the sequence of things,” Jones explains. The couple rented a house on a nearby walk street while their home was being redone. As a commercial architect specializing in hotels, spas and restaurants (Manhattan Beach Post is one of the South Bay restaurants designed by Jones’s firm, SF Jones Architects in Marina Del Rey), Jones wanted his home to showcase his residential abilities.

“I’ve since decided to stick with commercial work, although I’ve done a few

houses for friends and acquaintances,” he says. “I jokingly say that if you do residential architecture, you’re an architect-slash-marriage counselor. You learn more about people’s marriages than you want to know.” Designed in a contemporary Craftsman style, the home features trusses and details evocative of the architectural movement that became popular in the late 1800s and early 1900s. An axial layout defined by a large two-story wall allows for living spaces to feed off the axis. The home’s clean, simple detailing provides a decidedly modern feel. “One of my signature style elements is using a lot of saturated, intense colors, and I like to use material in its natural coloring,” notes Jones. Indonesian daru-daru wood was used as flooring throughout the house. Known for its intense, amberyellow color, the wood was refinished once and not stained. In the kitchen, Jones used padauk wood from Africa. The wood’s natural, deep red color has intensified over time, Jones says. “It’s almost like the house is ripening.” The home has a split-level floor plan with four bedrooms and three-and-a-half baths. Although Jones could have built to the maximum 3,300 square feet, the home is 2,850 square feet because he wanted to preserve the two mature trees in the backyard. “We got the essentials we needed. Bedrooms for the kids, a spare room for guests, and a decent-sized master bedroom and bath.” Jones adds that the living area is six to eight feet higher than the street elevation, which offers privacy despite the large picture windows at the front of the house. And though there’s much to love about his home, Jones admits he’s partial to the kitchen and its positioning relative to the family room and outside patio. “From the kitchen you have direct visual contact with the family room, and also to the patio,” notes Jones. “Those three spaces are where we usually hang out, so there’s always some connection.” And as the chef of the house, Jones says he can cook, watch his favorite football game and keep an eye on his kids playing in the yard, all at same time. Regarding kitchen design, Jones explains that “you have to think about where the activity happens and where the sous-chef needs to be. The [fewer] steps he takes, the more efficient he is, and he doesn’t crash into the chef.” Jones applied this philosophy in his own kitchen. “I can stand in one spot and get stuff out of the fridge, put it on the grill, and I have a nice maple block in the middle with a drawer that pulls out for trash. I don’t have to move. In my little triangle of space, I have everything I need.” Jones eventually did build the tree house of his dreams for his children. “It’s an elaborate, three-level tree house that connects the two big trees in the backyard,” the perfect reward for any child who can motivate his parents to give up an ocean view for a place to play.

LO OKING BACK

Neighborhood Church
WRIT TEN BY DENISE KANO
If you head into Palos Verdes, pass Malaga Cove and then drop down toward the right, you’ll come upon the Neighborhood Church, a beautiful building with an interesting past. J. J. Haggarty, an entrepreneur who owned businesses in both Los Angeles and New York, chose this beautiful and private spot to build his graceful mansion in 1927. The home was to serve as his summer residence. Haggerty was born in London in 1864 and arrived in Los Angeles in 1902, and he became a successful businessman. He hired architect Armand Monaco to design his summer home in the style of an elegant Mediterranean villa. The result was an expansive, one-story Italianate villa with a tile roof that was comprised of 32 rooms, including a master bedroom with a bathroom that featured a sunken Roman tub and a walk-in closet. Also included on the property were a conservatory, a formal garden, gardener’s cottage, a large swimming pool, private pier and two garages housing six automobiles. Haggerty’s architect specifically intended the residence to complement the dramatic, nearby cliffs. There was lush landscaping and immaculate gardens, all designed by the Olmsted Brothers. There was also a greenhouse and a reflecting pool, all of which were protected by a 30-foot sea wall. An intricate, bay. A barn also adjoined the residence. tag for those pre-Depression days.

The

STUNNING VIEWS, STORIED HISTORY

scalloped rock wall ran along the front of the estate, and an arched entranceway decorated the circular drive. Full-size olive trees and palm trees were planted on the property, and Roman statues surrounded the residence in keeping with the Mediterranean theme. Haggerty’s private pier extended 150 yards out into the

The cost to build Haggerty’s dream summer home? $750,000 – quite a price

When the Haggerty business faltered, his beautiful mansion passed through several owners and was finally bought by Harry Wheeler, a mid-west financier who purchased the estate with the sole purpose of housing his art collection. Upon Wheeler’s death, his family wanted neither the estate nor his collection, and the villa sat on the real estate market in 1949 for quite some time. The property’s asking price was just $250,000, and yet it was subsequently reduced numerous times. Executors of the Wheeler estate eventually accepted an offer from the United Church of Christ for $60,000 and the property became known as the Neighborhood Church in 1953. It may have changed a bit over the years, but the location still has gorgeous surroundings, unsurpassed views, and a welcoming spirit.

RIPPING IT UP
her love of surfing, what it’s like to compete in tournaments across the globe, and her future goals.
South Bay Digs: Tell me a little about your background and your connection to the South Bay. I grew up in Bakersfield until I was 11 and then moved to the Palos Verdes area. I always loved the ocean. Every time we would go to the beach when I was a kid, you couldn’t get me out. I always had a boogie board and was swimming around. And when we moved here, I was so happy. I was so fascinated with surfing, but could never do it because we lived so far away. When we finally did move here, my sister and I found a surfboard in my neighbor’s trash can. We found this board from the 1970s with a single fin and had no surf wax for it. We would go out and take turns and even hit a few people because we didn’t have a leash. We knew nothing about what we were doing, I just knew that I loved it! I kept going out all of the time and after a while began to pick things up. I was so dedicated and wanted to go every day and just be in the ocean. How long did it take you before you felt like you knew what you were doing out in the water? The first time I went out there, I didn’t even catch a wave. I was just trying to stay on the board. After a few times though, about the fifth time, I rode a white wash wave. I learned on a shortboard, so that made it really hard. After getting that wave, I was hooked. I couldn’t stop. The summer before high school, I would go every day. I walked a bunch of dogs that summer to save up for a new board. By the end of summer, I was picking up waves and knew what I was doing out there. I lived up by Peninsula High School at the time and would bike all the way to Manhattan Beach. What was going through your mind the first time you caught a big wave? It was such a special day. I’ll never forget that session. I was out there and the water was really shallow and clear, so I could see all of the shells on the bottom. I still remember having the song Breakaway by Kelly Clarkson stuck in my head. Only one other kid was out there surfing, so it wasn’t too crowded. I caught it and it was also the first wave that I angled on, so I was able to ride it sideways and stay up for a while. It was such a great feeling to float on top of the wave. What do you love about surfing? You almost can’t explain it. Just being out there, the colors are so beautiful, you often see marine life and it is so quiet. You are shut off from the rest of the world. All you hear are the waves crashing and the birds flying over. It is very peaceful. It is a great way to clear your head and it seems like everything disappears once you get in the water. Every time you go out, you can always challenge yourself. It is always unpredictable and keeps you on your toes. to Santa Barbara and Ventura.

NATALIE ANZIVINO

IN THE SOUTH BAY AND BEYOND
WRIT T EN BY QUINN ROBERTS

From the second Natalie Anzivino rode her first wave, she was hooked. Happiest when she’s surfing, the 22-year-old is down by the Manhattan Beach pier nearly every day practicing for upcoming competitions. South Bay Digs caught up with Anzivino to chat about

What do you like about surfing in the South Bay? Everyone is really friendly here when you are surfing. If you go down south or up north, people are really aggressive. I like this area being below the radar because of that. Everyone travels to Newport, Huntington and Malibu. Here it is cool. I usually surf Manhattan by the pier, which everyone makes fun of me for, but I also will occasionally travel. Sometimes I’ll surf El Porto or go What have you accomplished in surfing since graduating from high school? After high school, I had the decision of traveling to compete. I had a few sponsors, including Channel Island Surfboards and Mike Benavidez from Ercoles. I went to France, Hawaii and Florida, and I did pretty well. They were competitions run by the Association for Surfing Professionals and World Qualifying Series. The first big tournament I went to was in Hossegor, France when I was just 18. The whole thing was a pretty scary experience. I’d never been out of the country and got lost on the way there, but it was a growing experience. I saw all of these girls that I see in surfing magazines and was just trying to stay cool and not be star struck. My surfing isn’t what was holding me back, I just didn’t know how to compete at that level, but my surfing was there. I’d make it through a few heats, but never win any. What are some of the things you are trying to focus on in these competitions? I love going out and being free to catch waves and work on my surfing, but when you go out in a heat, especially with high level contests, you have to be very aggressive. It is almost like you are mean to the other surfers. That is so hard for me. I’m learning that it is a big part of competing and strategy. It’s almost about not letting others catch certain waves. Tell me about the contests you are competing in now and how you are staying involved in surfing. I’m trying to think more like an athlete. When I go out and surf every day, I am thinking about bettering my surfing. I am thinking about where I should be placing myself on the wave and doing more critical turns. I am also trying to train and eat like an athlete. I just did a 6-Star WQS event, which was a cool experience. I learned a lot and I know the scores I got, I know I can beat all of those girls, I just need to have a better strategy. I’m also doing strength and balance work. I’m just trying to surf seven days a week. Also as a surf instructor, I am in the water before and after lessons and work around that.
