L.A. Urban Rangers brave the exclusive beaches of Malibu

August 16, 2009 | 10:00 am


Who knew Malibu's tony beaches were filled with so many vicious predators? (And we're not talking about sharks, folks.)

On any given safari conducted by the Los Angeles Urban Rangers, there's a good chance that you'll run into an angry property owner demanding that the group gets off his or her "private" land. 

The confrontations can sometimes turn ugly, as shown in the above video in which Ranger Jenny and Ranger Nick do their best to fend off a couple of verbal attacks. The L.A. Urban Rangers say that their goal isn't to pick a fight but rather to inform the public about its right to walk on land that belongs to everyone.

In case you were wondering, the L.A. Urban Rangers aren't affiliated with an official parks organization. They are in fact a performance group that adopts the ranger persona as part of its act. Currently, they operate along the beaches of Malibu but are planning to bring their unique form of urban exploration to downtown L.A. in the not-so-distant future.

Read the full story to meet the intrepid gang behind the L.A. Urban Rangers.
