We had some very contestable waves with 2-3' waves, sunny and light offshore conditions.
In the Team on Team event ... we were defeated by Mission Hills 77 - 49. Though we had a good day and every one got in the water. We had three alternates seeded into the event and saw Marius Kulda with his first short board debut and Kacie Sorfleet stepping into take a spot in the young womens short board event.
In the Individuals we saw two of our surfers making it thru to the Finals:
Kalea Johnson took 2nd - Womens Long Board
Kelby Kramer took 3rd - Co-ed Body Board
Congratulations and to everyone for coming down and enjoying a beautiful day at the Hook!
Kalea Johnson took 1st in Girls Longboard
Nicky Sorfleet took 6th in Girls Longboard (First time in the finals!)
Kalea Johnson took 4st in Girls Shortboard
HMB fell to New Brighton 71 to 55
Conditions were sublimely groomed in the morning, with light offshores and waist to shoulder high peeling mostly left-breaking waves at high tide and rights as the tide drained towards low. Towards the end of the day onshore winds picked up.
***Most of the Midde School Surfers received their SC SSL T-Shirts. Rocky will have them available for the rest of the team at the next couple of practices.
Fantastic job HMB!
...and just for good measure some video shot by the guys at www.boardwarrior.com on this beautiful day!

HMB Surf TEAM Practice will be in Santa Cruz on Sunday 9:15 a.m. (Nov 4th) - Team/Comp Practice will be a "Free Surf Practice" split between the Hook to Pleasure Point depending on the surfers ability and conditions.
We will first meet up at Starbuck's in HMB at 7:45 am on Sunday morning to depart for SC for a tune-up at our next competition venue at the Hook. Then we will make our way to The Hook parking lot at the end of 41st St by 9:15 a.m. The purpose is to gain familiarity with the break. If anyone needs a ride, please show up promptly. After Practice we will head over to Steamer Lane to watch the WCT - O'Neill Cold Water Classic - to witness some high performance contest techniques in person.
Surf "Club members" are encouraged to get in the water at the Jetty in HMB at 9 a.m. Though there will be fewer coaches, we should have the trailer available and some support. If you want to see some truly outstanding surfing after practice, you should try to make it down to Santa Cruz to see the top 32 surfers on the ASP World tour compete at the Lane. This is also a good opportunity for the groms to hound the Pros for autographs... just sayin.
Congratulations HMB Cunha Surf Team on Dual meet win over Santa Cruz Mountain:
HMB 82 vs Santa Cruz Mountain 41
