Surf Team Schedule Update:
Our Club calendar has been updated to reflect recent changes in the team contest schedule for both the middle and high schools. This has also just been changed on the SC SSL website as well:
In short, there are no comps next weekend. These have been moved to the weekend of Feb 23-24, while the comps on Mar 9-10 have been swapped. The middle school will compete at the Hook for their remaining contests, while the high school will compete at the Point in Feb and the Lane in Mar.
*In addition, thanks to all who attended and donated to the Maverick's Photo Exhibit and raffle - we raised an additional $640 for the Club!
**Thanks go to Oliver for updating the website banner to reflect our new logo, colors and cool attitude! Hope you like it.
HMB Surf Club practice at the Jetty - be there and suited up at 9am sharp.
See you in the morning-
Maverick's: Everest of the Seas - Fundraiser for the HMB Surf Club
All Club families are welcome to attend and support the exhibit at Saturday night's reception, Jan-26th, from 5-8 p.m. at the Coastal Arts League at 300 Main Street.
There will be an army of Mav's photographers and journalists on hand and likely a couple competitors with whom to hobnob. Raffle items will include a surfboard, wetsuit and other goodies, along with superb photos for sale. Raffle and Club garment proceeds go to the Surf Club.
Come on down and support your team!
HMB Surf Team/Competition Practice @ Jetty Weds (Jan-23) 3:30 pm
We will get another shot of long-period swell on Weds, along with a dose of south winds and low tide in the afternoon. That will likely shut down everything but the Jetty, so let's hope the wind retains a little east in it.
Don't stress if you can't make it, since we'll have to get lucky to pull it off and there's 100% chance of rain in the afternoon.
See ya there, or not...
Oliver and Marty will be at Kelly Ave. to check conditions. Please.. only experienced surfers shouild go out. We are still expecting solid 6 foot plus sets with a lot of current. Depending on conditions we may cancel or move to a different location.
Contest organizers have decided to run the Mavericks Invitational contest this coming Sunday 1/20/13. The Festival will open at 8am on Sunday...
Contest organizers are asking Surf Club Parents who wish to Volunteer an hour or so of their time, in exchange for entrance to the Festival to report to the Volunteers tent on the festival grounds (the Back Lot of the Oceano Hotel & Spa) or you can send an email to the volunteers coordinator at firstname.lastname@example.org (Michele D).
Volunteers are needed to help with:
- drink service at the festival
- perimeter monitors to keep crowds off the bluffs and help monitor festival grounds.
Please come out and support this festival some of the proceeds from the festival will go back into supporting the Boys and Girls Club of the Coastside.
Cheers and see you on Sunday
ps- As a side note we will not be holding practice this coming Sunday
HMB Surf Team/Competition Practice @ Kelly Weds (Jan-16) 3:30 pm
Winds are forecast to stay offshore and the swell is supposed to pick up modestly as the tide drops back in the afternoon. Let's try to get in a comp practice and split up on a couple different peaks if we can find them tomorrow.
See ya there,
Free Surf at Kelly tomorrow (Tuesday) morning at 6:30. Should be clean but small...
Kalea Johnson took 1st in Girls Longboard
Nicky Sorfleet took 6th in Girls Longboard (First time in the finals!)
Kalea Johnson took 4st in Girls Shortboard
HMB fell to New Brighton 71 to 55
Conditions were sublimely groomed in the morning, with light offshores and waist to shoulder high peeling mostly left-breaking waves at high tide and rights as the tide drained towards low. Towards the end of the day onshore winds picked up.
***Most of the Midde School Surfers received their SC SSL T-Shirts. Rocky will have them available for the rest of the team at the next couple of practices.
Fantastic job HMB!
...and just for good measure some video shot by the guys at www.boardwarrior.com on this beautiful day!
