High School Surf Team Results from a Wet Saturday at the Point

High School Surf Team Results from a Wet Saturday at the Point:

HMB 48 vs Santa Cruz 78

Well, we got that one out out of the way for the season. HMB went down to their perennial nemesis Santa Cruz High in stormy and wet mixed up conditions at Pleasure Point in their second contest of the season. Hunter Murison in shortboard (3) and Kelby Kramer (3) in body board were the only male team members to advance from the morning team round. Kaira Wallace was the only female member to advance in shortboard (1) and longboard (1).

As for the individual results, the good news was that the tide dropped, the sun broke out and all three advanced through a marathon of quarters, semis and into the finals with the following impressive finish:

Co-ed Bodyboard: Kelby Kramer 4th
Women's Longboard: Kaira Wallace 1st
Women's Shortboard: Kaira Wallace 4th
Men's Shortboard: Hunter Murison 5th

Well done all,

Coaches Mike and Kerri

P.S. As a reminder, no practices over the Thanksgiving break - just stuff in a few barrels to work off the Turkey!

Free Surf/Practice - 6:30 am - ... Kelly Ave Thursday 11/25/14

We are thinking there is a chance for surf in the am... so if you are interested we will have the gate unlocked for a free surf before school.

SCSSL Contest Update:

The forecasts are once again not cooperating with our plans for the Half Moon Bay contests. We are moving the contests to Santa Cruz this weekend.

Location
The high school teams will be at Pleasure Point on Saturday
The middle school teams will be at the Hook on Sunday

Time
Start time is 7:00 am

Schedule
The team round schedule has not changed:

High School

Saturday, Nov 22nd Pleasure Point
7:00 Half Moon Bay v Santa Cruz
8:30 SC Mountain v Aptos
10:00 Live Oak / Carmel v Soquel / Cypress

Middle School

Sunday, Nov 23rd The Hook
7:00 Half Moon Bay v Mission Hill
8:30 Shoreline v Aptos
10:00 New Brighton v SC Mountain/Carmel

The tide is high in the morning and will make entry and exit challenging. Please make sure that your surfers are comfortable with the conditions and understand how to safely get in and out. We'll have a lifeguard on duty but coaches (and parents) should also be prepared to help as needed.

There's a good chance of rain on Saturday so come prepared. If you bring an EZ up tent, it cannot be staked down (it's against the rules of our permit). Bring anchors of some sort instead.

See you this weekend,

Susan

Contest Schedule Update from SCSSL Director Susan Coffey

Contest Schedule Update from SCSSL Director Susan Coffey:

Whenever the forecast for an upcoming contest is less than favorable, we start getting calls or emails. I wanted to pass on some info on our process so you are informed.

1) We always monitor the conditions coming into a contest weekend. We start watching a week or so ahead, and have the support of both StormSurf and Surfline for forecasts.

2) We have back up locations for most of our sites so unless the weather or waves are so unruly that it's uncontestable, we'll run the contest as scheduled. The location may change however!

3) We'll make a final decision on the venue when it gets close to the weekend and the forecast is more certain. Usually we'll know by Thursday before a contest but it has been known to change the day before (and even the morning of, once!).

As for HMB this weekend:

We're monitoring the conditions for this weekend's contests in HMB. It's looking a lot like our last attempt in October so be prepared for another possible change of venue to Santa Cruz. We'll keep you posted as we get closer to the weekend.

Thanks,

Your Coaches

HIGH SCHOOL SURF TEAM Practice Schedule

11/14/2014 4:00 pm
America/Los Angeles

HIGH SCHOOL SURF TEAM Practice Schedule:

1) Friday 4 pm - Dunes
2) Sunday 9 am - Kelly

Let's take a chance that the high tide tomorrow afternoon will compensate for the NW winds at Dunes and take advantage of the clean conditions and smaller swell on Sunday at Kelly. Then it's just a week to go before the comp in HMB, fingers crossed.

Mahalo,

Coach Mike

HIGH SCHOOL TEAM PRACTICE SCHEDULE:

1) Friday - Free Surf
2) Sunday - 9 a.m. Kelly

Stiff Northwest winds, short-period swell and a deep negative tide Friday afternoon have wrecked any hopes of a finding shelter for a practice. Free surf if you can find it. Let's drop back and punt to Sunday morning at Kelly, where offshores, rising tide and moderate swell should give us a better shot.

Mahalo,

Coach Mike

We are thinking there is a chance for surf in the am... so if you are interested we will have the gate unlocked for a free surf before school - it was pretty fun this morning.

HIGH SCHOOL SURF TEAM Practice Schedule:

1) Friday - Happy Halloween & Giants Parade (free surf)
2) Sunday - Jetty 9 a.m.

Rain and other events will conspire against a team practice on Friday, though Montara or Linda Mar may work for a "free surf" with south winds and moderate swell. Sunday we'll be coming off a large swell the day prior, which may still be a little too chunky for our beach breaks. If not the Jetty, we will confirm an alternate venue.

Mahalo,

Coach Mike
