HMB Surf Club surfers will meet at the Jetty at 9 a.m. Sunday (Sep-16) for practice. Please check in with Rocky and Oliver, as Amber is out of town.
Competitive/team surfers will start at Kelly at 9 a.m. Conditions are expected to be marginal, with a minor pick-up in windswell. Bring a floaty board as a back-up if you have one. We may try to run a couple heats depending on the conditions. We also have an option of heading 10-15 minutes south of town, if the surf better, pending an eye-witness update then. If you have missed some practices this may be a good opportunity to make up some roster points anyway.
Please check your emails and SMS texts in the morning for a further update in case of venue change.

There is a California Coastal Beach Cleanup this Saturday Septmber 15th 2012 - the HMB Surf Club will meet at Dunes Beach at 9am to help clean up!

See you in the morning!
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,
