Maverick's Paddle Out Friday (Nov-9)

11/09/2012 3:30 pm
America/Los Angeles

HMB Team/Comp surfers are invited to join the paddle out for the Maverick's opening ceremonies on Friday (Nov-9). Club surfers are welcome to come spectate at the beach inside Maverick's.

The ceremonies technically begin at 2 p.m., so please be prepared to head over immediately after school, be suited up and ready to go by 3:30 p.m. at the latest. The paddle out and ceremonial circling of the surfers in the waters just offshore will be at approximately 3:45 p.m. This a serious and sacred event for the invited surfers that kicks off the contest window and we expect you to conduct yourselves respectfully with that in mind. They will likely be honoring fallen comrades and looking forward to a safe and spectacular contest.

This is one of those events that makes living in HMB so special, and being part of the surf club and surfing community here such a privilege.

See you there,

Your Coaches

HMB Surf Team/Competition Practice @ Kelly Weds (Nov-7) 3:30 pm

Due to the time change we will start practice earlier and wrap up by quickly sundown, which is now about 5 p.m. The surf is forecast to drop, but the weather is set to cool off with some West winds picking up, which could bump up conditions. Be prepared for a venue change if we are forced to retreat.

Note, Team surfers have been invited to the Maverick's paddle out on Friday and the concert-fundraiser at the OPL is on Saturday. More details will be forthcoming ahead of these events.

See you tomorrow,

HMB Surf "Team/Comp" Practice Sunday in Santa Cruz @ 41st Ave./Hook

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.

HMB Surf Team/Competition Practice @ Kelly Weds (Oct-24) 4 pm

We will try to run practice at Kelly Ave, though the winds, rain, swell could beat us back to another location such as the Jetty. The forecast looks good, however, for cleaner conditions by this weekend's competition, which will likely be held at Kelly. Competition for our teams will start at 7 a.m. each day this weekend, so be sure to be there by 6:30 a.m at the latest, especially for the men's first heats -- warmed up and suited up.

High school surf team members should have already received an email with the roster details and there will be no team meeting this week for HMB high. Please let me know if you can't make it, or didn't get the email, since there are other surfers waiting for a place.

See ya there,
Coach Mike
