About the LBSA

The mission of the Long Beach Surfer's Association is to provide a unified voice for the surf community and help insure public policy appropriately addresses the needs of our large and vibrant community. To this end, the Association strives to work cooperatively with the City of Long Beach and the Long Beach lifeguards to provide safe and open access to the surf for all. The Association further exists to be of service to the local community through charitable events, contests, and other opportunities to get together, as well as by addressing important environmental concerns for our local beaches and waterways.

The LBSA Board of Directors are Xavier Ceniceros,  Larry Moriarty, Jackie Suskind Kupferman, Jeff Kupferman, and LBSA President Will Hallett. The Board continues to be guided and inspired by the thoughts, words, and actions of Danny Bobis, a founding member of the LBSA. While Danny may no longer be with us, his spirit and dedication lives on in all of us.
