HMB Surf Team/Competition Practice @ Jetty Weds (Dec-26) 3:00 pm
For team surfers still in town for the holidays we will be holding a practice at the Jetty tomorrow. A broad combo swell from S-WNW will be picking up some steam and the wind is forecast to flip around to stiff NW gusts, which should put the Jetty back in business.
We will run a couple heats if there are enough surfers, since the next SCSSL competitions are just around the corner. The high school team will be up against Harbor at Manresa on Saturday Jan-12 and the junior high will be against New Brighton on Sunday Jan-13.
Free surf / weather Cancellation - surf if you can or support your local surf shop & take Care of your Xmas shopping locally!Submitted by okeeton on Sat, 2012-12-22 19:01
Surf if you can or support your local Surf Shops... swing by and say "Hi" to Lucy At Cowboy Surf Shop or Jeff & Cassandra at Mavericks Surf Shop. They will help you take care of your last minute Xmas Shopping Needs. If nothing else pick up some wax for your favorite surfer's stocking, as they will probably need that and a whole lot of other stuff once this weather clears!
"Free Surf" Practice Weds for HMB Surf Team competitors due to finals week.
Time to grind it out studying for finals this week - study hard, so you can play hard over the break! We will not be holding a formal practice this week as a result.
If you carve out some time for a surf later in the week, please exercise due caution from Thursday onward as a XXL west-northwest swell is set to arrive with some more ferocious and contrary south winds. This will leave few places to hide.
Have a great week, good luck on finals!

HMB Surf TEAM/strong Comp Surfers (expecting 4-6 ft at 16-17 secs) to Kelly for a free surf at Kelly.
We're hoping that the easterly off-shores will hold for us in the am but south winds could kick-in and ruin the party.
HMB Surf Team/Competition Practice @ Jetty Weds (Dec-12) 3:30 pm
Faced with NW winds tomorrow afternoon, an increase in bumpy wind swell and a -1.6 foot low tide we will have to take our chances and seek shelter at the Jetty. This actually fine, as we all need to work on our small wave technique, which means less hopping and more rail-to-rail "S-turns."
Please bring a small wave shortboard if you have one (wider and flatter) and, as a back-up, bring a skateboard - preferably a "Carveboard" style board. If you have extras, throw in one for a friend.
See ya there,
Oliver and Marty will be at Kelly Street tomorrow morning to unlock the gate and check the surf. If it's decent, we'll be surfing! Hopefully it will be as clean as it was this morning!
Congratulations HMB High Surf Team on your dual meet win over Aptos Saturday by 70 to 55!
Another great team performance turned in by HMB in small and tricky conditions at The Hook in Santa Cruz. Everyone contributed to the win, our second straight for the season. With a team stacked with goofy footers, the small right breaking reef definitely put HMB on the back foot and at big a disadvantage, but no matter...
In the team competition Hunter Murison (2nd), Konrad Wallace (1st) and Peter Lundgard (3rd) advanced out of the mens shortboard rounds; Hannah Tonnessen (3rd) and Kaira Wallace (1st) advanced out of womens shortboard; Konrad (2nd) and Kaira (1st) advanced from their respective longboard heats; and our Ace squad of Zander Dragony (1st), Hunter Murison (2nd, subbing for brother Carson) and Malcolm Feix (3rd) swept again in bodyboard. Fantastic!
In the individual finals HMB surfers placed in every category with the following results:
Womens longboard: Kaira 3rd
Mens longboard: Konrad 2nd
Womens shortboard: Kaira 5th
Mens shortboard: Peter 4th
Co-ed Bodyboard: Hunter 3rd, Zander 5th
Really great job, fine team spirit and super fun day. Thanks to everyone who participated and helped out. Next up we have a contest on January 12th against Harbor at Manresa, another beach break which should suit us just fine. Look out!
