World Surf League Catches Wave in El Segundo with New HQ Space


Savills oversaw the relocation of the World Surf League’s (WSL) headquarters to El Segundo. The global home of competitive surfing will move into a 16,324-square-foot sublease at 2201 Rosecrans Ave.

Real estate strategy for the WSL was initiated by Savills senior managing director Michael Shuken and president of the Los Angeles region Josh Gorin. A workplace study was conducted by senior managing director Shannon Woodcock.

With El Segundo fast becoming the epicenter of LA sports as major sports leagues and teams move to the area, the location aligns with WSL’s vision of building its platform as the global home of competitive surfing.

“The WSL was also seeking to consolidate its two previous spaces and upgrade its office environment into a single unified workplace,” said Shuken. “We surveyed multiple options in the Los Angeles area and expanded our search into the South Bay. We located a state-of-the-art opportunity that checked all the boxes for the WSL in terms of size, quality of improvements, amenities, and parking. It’s also less than a five-minute drive to the beach.”
