Manual Shore Stations



Latitude:34° 1.38’ N
Longitude:118° 49.98’ W
Operational since December 1956
Measurements Taken
Pt. Dume West Malibu Shore Station

To reduce the effects of solar warming on the waters near the beach, water temperatures are taken in the surf early each morning by the Los Angeles County Lifeguards at Zuma Beach County Park. Temperatures at this site west of Point Dume, are therefore thought to be representative of the nearshore waters.

Please note: manual shore station data is updated periodically, not continuously. As a result, the SCCOOS data repository may lag behind the actual data collection. Thank you for your patience.
