The "Big Chill Out" longboard contest will be held next weekend at Linda Mar on Saturday Oct-6. Sponsored by the Pedro Point Surf Club, this is a perfect tune-up event for aspiring competitive high school team longboarders.
We have negotiated a discounted $50 entry fee for HMB team surfers (includes T-shirt and dinner/awards) and I would highly recommend that any high school surfers who want to compete in longboarding take part in this event. In order to reserve slots, I need to know immediately the surfers who plan to participate. I have extra copies of entry forms that I can email to you as well.
Entries can also be sent to or you can try to sign-up on contest day:
Pedro Point Surf Club

Pacifica, CA 94044
** Please note the HMB Surf Team discount and your age, name, shirt size, address, phone, email, etc. and whether you are in "Junior Men" (19 and under) or "Junior Women" (25 and under) categories**

HMB Surf Team and Club practice will be at the Jetty @ 9 a.m. Sunday (Sep-30).
A new south swell and a hurricane pulse will be filling in, along with the NW swell holding firm. Conditions could be a little challenging for new club surfers, so parents please use your discretion. We will be running heats for the high school team and any junior high competitive surfers who wish to join in.
Congratulations to the Middle School Team for a fine opening performance at the Lane today in solid conditions!! Go HMB!!
See you Sunday,
Below is a link to video footage of last night's high school heats at the Jetty for those who may wish to check their style and execution. Conditions were fickle, but contestable:
Take away points:
1) Wave SELECTION key
2) Make MOST of conditions
3) PROWL the line-up, don't just sit
4) Surfers must bring ENERGY to weak waves
4) Set up and FINISH your waves
Special thanks goes to Koz Nouripour for filming last night and posting the raw footage. Please see the coaches if you want more insight into improving your technique after reviewing video.
HMB Surf Team/Comp practice will meet @ Jetty Weds 4 p.m. (Sep-26).
There is a very high likelihood that we will move more experienced team members to another break as the NW swell backs off more and a SW swell fills in. Please look for an email and Twitter update tomorrow afternoon prior to practice. We plan to run heats.
We will be having a HMB Middle School Surf Team meeting at lunch time in the Boys & Girls Club Room, on Wednesday 9/26.
We will be going over the coming Competition at the Lane on 9/29 and having some Pizza!
See you then...
Practice will be at 9:00AM ... we will meet in the Parking lot at the South end of Montara State Beach on 09/23/12 at 9:00AM (but on the north side of the restaurant)
Just a heads up the HMB International Marathon will be going on in HMB from 7:30 to appx 11am ... so factor that in when you are driving to the beach... another reason we will start at Montara. as it is out of the way of the marathon.
See you in the morning!
