HMB Surf Team/Competitive surfers:
Practice for Wednesday (Sep-12) will start at Kelly from 4 p.m. sharp. Arrive early and ready to go if you want to warm up in the surf. A steep-angle combo NW and windswell should still be in the water, while the wind may back off in the afternoon. Fingers-crossed, but we may move if conditions prove marginal.
See you then,
Deadline for SCSSL League and Boys&Girls Club dues/membership is Friday Sep-14:
Thank you to all who showed up Sunday morning for a great team meeting and paperwork-fest, followed by a really good team practice in challenging conditions.

***Please note we will be taking part in a Beach Clean-up Day at Dunes Beach on Saturday Sep-15 at 9 a.m., which will count toward your academic volunteer hours.
***Wednesday's Sep-12 practice for competition surfers will be at 4 p.m. sharp. Venue is TBA and it will be quick practice for HMB high surfers due to open house at 6 p.m. (Note: regular attendance will be one key factor in determining our rosters for upcoming competitions).
