Heads up people... just heard in the news that the State Parks pass costs will be raising the price of annual park passes by as much as $70 on May 1.
The cost of an annual day use pass that is valid for all California parks will jump from $125 to $195. The Golden Poppy pass, which provides entrance to 98 parks..., will go from $90 to $125.
So if you're close to renewing your Califonia State/Poppy Park Pass do it sooner rather than later and save some $$$... as it may make sense to renew before the prices climb.
I (Amber Johnson) am leading a biodiversity tour to Costa Rica during the summer of 2013. This tour is set up for college students at SFSU, but we still have some space available that we can fill with friends and family too! Take a look at the link below to see the itinerary. The tour is coast to coast with amazing stops along the way. This is not a surf trip, but the tour ends on the Guanacaste Coast and travelers can choose to extend their stay and surf if they like. The tour is currently discounted until April 5th! For those under the age of 30 it is $137/month (after $95 enrollement fee and transfer fees) or$1906. For those over the age of 30 it is $154 per month or $2146 as a lump sum if you book by April 5th. If anyone has any questions send me an email or give me a call (650-452-4593) and I would be happy to answer any questions!
If any families are considering sending just their surfer, please call me ASAP as there are some age restictions that I would like to talk to you about. If you feel that your child is ready for this type of an adventure, I'd be happy to have them!
Please note that this tour actually takes place during the last week of school! If there is enough interest - I could schedule a trip during summer proper (maybe 2014) if there are families that would like that option.

Surfers and Parents,
As many of you may have already heard, we will not be attending State Championships in Oceanside this year. The cost to get down there, register our surfers, lodging and food went far beyond our annual budget surplus. Now more than ever, we really need to have a super successful Luau!!
Please join us at Camerons this Thursday for pizza and good times. We will be handing out the Trophies from the CSSL league to the high school surfers that placed in the top 6 of each catogory and announcing how the team placed. In addition, we would like to hand out Luau packets to everyone that could not make last Thursday's meeting at Cunha.
See you Thursday!!
Luau for the SurfRiders kick-off meeting, Thursday March 22nd at 7PM at the Boys and Girls Club room (Cunha school campus)Submitted by okeeton on Wed, 2012-03-14 08:35
To all our HMB Surf Club Families, Mark your calendars for the 5th annual Luau for the Surfriders, Saturday, May 12th!!!
Hard to believe that this is our 5th year. The support that our club has continued to receive since its inception is amazing. The luau has given us the opportunity to get all members of the surf community involved in what we are doing as well as serving as our primary fundraiser for both teams. We will be holding the kick-off meeting on Thursday March 22nd at 7PM at the Boys and Girls Club on the Cunha school campus. We ask that at least one parent and one surfer of every club family attends this meeting. This meeting is a critical step in having a successful event and we need every family that benefits from the club to help in some way. Our budget requirements for next year have risen and we will need everyone's help to reduce our costs and to increase our donations.
In order to get off to a good start, we are looking for a few volunteers to help in two primary areas. The first is help with the silent auction and raffle. Lele Keeton has bravely volunteered to run this again this year! The second is help managing the kitchen area the night of the event.
Lele will require assistance from all of you:
- Donations for the silent auction – we need 20- 25 major items for the auction. We ask for your help to solicit donations of services and items.
- Raffle items – Attendees purchase raffle tickets at the luau; these are the prizes we hand out during the event. Smaller items are fine if we can combine them to make a great prize.
The job of managing the kitchen area includes:
- The night of the event will involve working with surfers to make sure all of the food gets set up and served.
- Cleanup up and organization of rental items for Monday pick up.
- Besides surfers, there will be 4 or 5 people involved in food preparation (Richard and his crew and 1 or 2 others hired by us).
Please reply back and let us know if you would be willing to help in either of these areas. It would be greatly appreciated by all!
Aloha and see you on March 22nd!
~Mara Krasts, Paula Bell and Lele Keeton

Formal surf club and team practices will be temporarily suspended with the end of the regular contest season this weekend.
The junior high team finished strong at final contest at the Hook and the high school will wrap things up this Sunday at the Lane with the final comp of a very long season. Please free-surf with your buddies in the meantime and feel free to contact coaches about the conditions, but there will be no supervised practices for now.
Coaches will notify those going on to regionals and states in April and we may hold some heats in late March for those taking part.
Mahalo and many thanks for a really great and fun season,
