HMB High School Surf Team/Comp Practice @ Montara Tues (Nov-27) 3:30-5:00 p.m.

**Due to the IMPENDING STORM and big West swell we have moved the high school practice to Tuesday from Wednesday and have cancelled the junior high practice this week. The swell should still be small tomorrow and hopefully we'll get lucky and it won't be destroyed by strong south winds yet. If blown out, we will send a follow-up email ASAP. The coast may not be surfable for the rest of the week, so join in if you can make it. There is also a chance the Hook contest could be moved or postponed, especially for the junior high on Saturday.

***HIGH SCHOOL TEAM MEETING will be at lunch on Weds (Nov-28) in Mr. Lawrence's room to go over the roster and heat strategy for the Hook (yes, there will be pizza).

****VIDEO FOOTAGE of Sunday's practice at Kelly has been posted by Chris Loeswick. Please check it out and compare notes with the feedback you're getting on technique at the beach, which should help you step up your game. Big thanks again to Chris!

HMB Surf Team/Competition Practice @ Kelly Sunday (Nov-25) 9:00 am; Club Meets @ Dunes

America/Los Angeles

HMB Surf Team/Competition Practice @ Kelly Sunday (Nov-25) 9:00 am; Club will meet @ Dunes.

We're hoping that the easterly offshores will hold for us just one more day. If you're in town, come on down and grab some waves before the weather changes mid-week.

Note we have just one more week to go before our competition next weekend at the Hook in Santa Cruz (junior high Saturday, high school Sunday). Comp surfers will need to work on going right (especially goofy-footers), popping up quick and getting your hits in fast and sharp in short peeling waves. We will try to run heats if conditions are favorable. If you plan to compete on body board, please bring them tomorrow.

See you there,

Your coaches

Sunday Practice Captured on video by Chris Loeswick

Sunday's practice was captured on video by Chris Loeswick:

Anyone who made Sunday's practice should check out Chris's video. Nice straight air by Mr. Hunter Murison.

Conditions we're kinda wonky and back-washy, so all you guys did really well to get some contestable waves and turns.

Remember, for comp surfers we need to continue to work on "speed, power and flow" as well as opening up the front shoulder to set up turns with the hands. Variety is also very important. If you did a roundhouse, follow-up with an off-the-lip and floater (or air!).

Chris promises to get even more kids next time around.

Thanks Chris!

Maverick's Paddle Out Friday (Nov-9)

11/09/2012 3:30 pm
America/Los Angeles

HMB Team/Comp surfers are invited to join the paddle out for the Maverick's opening ceremonies on Friday (Nov-9). Club surfers are welcome to come spectate at the beach inside Maverick's.

The ceremonies technically begin at 2 p.m., so please be prepared to head over immediately after school, be suited up and ready to go by 3:30 p.m. at the latest. The paddle out and ceremonial circling of the surfers in the waters just offshore will be at approximately 3:45 p.m. This a serious and sacred event for the invited surfers that kicks off the contest window and we expect you to conduct yourselves respectfully with that in mind. They will likely be honoring fallen comrades and looking forward to a safe and spectacular contest.

This is one of those events that makes living in HMB so special, and being part of the surf club and surfing community here such a privilege.

See you there,

Your Coaches

HMB Surf "Team/Comp" Practice Sunday in Santa Cruz @ 41st Ave./Hook

HMB Surf TEAM Practice will be in Santa Cruz on Sunday 9:15 a.m. (Nov 4th) - Team/Comp Practice will be a "Free Surf Practice" split between the Hook to Pleasure Point depending on the surfers ability and conditions.

We will first meet up at Starbuck's in HMB at 7:45 am on Sunday morning to depart for SC for a tune-up at our next competition venue at the Hook. Then we will make our way to The Hook parking lot at the end of 41st St by 9:15 a.m. The purpose is to gain familiarity with the break. If anyone needs a ride, please show up promptly. After Practice we will head over to Steamer Lane to watch the WCT - O'Neill Cold Water Classic - to witness some high performance contest techniques in person.

Surf "Club members" are encouraged to get in the water at the Jetty in HMB at 9 a.m. Though there will be fewer coaches, we should have the trailer available and some support. If you want to see some truly outstanding surfing after practice, you should try to make it down to Santa Cruz to see the top 32 surfers on the ASP World tour compete at the Lane. This is also a good opportunity for the groms to hound the Pros for autographs... just sayin.
