Looks like Coast Live but would want to see the underside of the leaves to be sure.

Coast Live Oak is the only live oak we've ever found growing in this area. Interior live oak is very uncommon in the Santa Monicas, only occurring in a few small patches, canyon live oak has never been found there to my knowledge, and there is scrub oak around but it doesn't look like this - much pointier leaves.

Valley Oak also occurs in interior areas of the Santa Monicas.
