Tomorrows conditions are looking very promissing for an epic Kelly session! Our first heat will go off at 6:45. Please get there on time!!
Laura Acton from the HMB High School Yearbook will be there to take pictures for the surfteam section in this years Yearbook.
We are calling a free surf day ... no official practice due to current predicted swell size & weather conditions. There will be a contingent of folks at the beach at Linda Mar (probably Boat Docks) if you care to come join us.
If you're surfer is not an "A" surfer we would ask you to stay and supervise your surfer as we will be surfing and not running practice. Please be advised that the current swell forecast for Sunday is 8-10 ft - 3 ft ... while it will probaly be smaller than this at the South end of Linda Mar aka; Boat Docks - there is still some very strong energy in the water.
Practices will start @4:00pm begining tommorow February the 9th., we will meet at the Jetty. If Conditions are better and off shore winds rule the day we may move...
Also - It is Importrant for the girls to be there, as we will be running elimination heats for the girls. To help determine, who will be selected to represnt the team when we go to the NSSA contest at Huntington Beach.
Seem you tommorow

I will need everyone that is planning on competing in Event 2 to let me know which division is their primary division (see 2 below). Please Contact Dylan at firstname.lastname@example.org - For surfers that competed in 2 divisions in the first contest I just need to know which is their primary division. Email Dylan with your name and division.
If they want to compete in an additional division they can enter that additional division for $10 on our website:
For kids that competed in a single division, I would still like a confirmation email (Please Contact Dylan at email@example.com) that they are planning to come so I can make sure all the heats are full.
2. The 2-for-1 division promotion was for the first contest only. Contestants can compete in an additional division in Event 2 for $10. The signup for an additional division is at:

To our budding Mav's stars:
Mark Visser who was recently documented surfing Jaws at night has a really simple trick for holding your breath longer on a hold-down. Basically you exhail fully before sucking in a fresh lungfull of clean air before the next set wave aims at your head.
