HMB HIgh Surf Team Practice Schedule:
1) Friday - Kelly Ave. 4 pm
2) Sunday - Kelly Ave. 9 am
South swell will slowly wind down into the weekend and the wind may flip on us by practice on Friday after a run of epic sunny, offshore conditions. We'll try for Kelly both days anyway, with fall-backs at Roosevelt or Jetty if needed.
We are thinking there is a chance for surf in the am... so if you are interested I will have the gate unlocked for a free surf before school - it was pretty fun this morning.

HMB High Surf Team Practice Schedule:
1) Friday "Free Surf" at Jetty - 4 pm
2) Sunday Heats at Roosevelt - 9 am
Friday looks to be pretty blown out everywhere, though those desperate enough may find a couple of corners at the Jetty if the windswell picks up (not a formal practice, surf where you can find it). Sunday looks quite a bit more promising with offshores returning and we will try to run some heats at Roosevelt.
P.S. Great job again to both the middle school and high school teams at the Lane last weekend - overcoming home court advantage in Santa Cruz.

HMB High Results from Lane Comp:
Team Result: HMB victorious over Live Oak/Carmel (HMB now 3 wins and 1 loss)
Chilly day at the Lane with fog and overcast skies not dampening HMB competitive spirits in small-clean surf. Lucky to get team heats done before high tide lulls put the comp on hold and then it resumed the individual round as tide dropped. HMB placed 2 surfers in double finals.
HMB advanced at least 2 out of 3 surfers possible in every event but longboard against a feisty Live Oak/Carmel squad for another fine team performance on Saturday. Malcolm Feix placed first in both his shortboard and longboard heats, Hunter Murison took first in shortboard and bodyboard heats, and Kaira Wallace earned firsts in both shortboard and longboard. These veteran competitors really stepped up and anchored the solid team effort, along with others. Special mention goes to Hunter, who launched into a series of barrel rolls in his bodyboard heat, earning kudos from the commentator Austin: "who IS that guy!?" and big scores from the judges.
Zach Rach, Luke Eveslage and Coel Miller advanced as far as the quarters in men's shortboard; Malcolm advanced to the semis. Hanna Pintarelli and Katrina Sponsler made women's shortboard semi-finals. Tanner Islander made men's longboard semis, while Elina Vanuska and Hanna Pintarelli made semis in women's longboard.
Bodyboard: Hunter Murison 3rd, Kelby Kramer 6th
Women's Longboard: Kaira Wallace 4th
Men's Longboard: Malcolm Feix 5th
Women's Shortboard: Kaira Wallace 2nd
Men's Shortboard: Hunter Murison 6th
P.S. Rumors are circulating of very special performances in the middle school comp, results forthcoming.
HMB High School Comp at Lane:
We will have a team meeting at 8 a.m. sharp Saturday before team heats start at 8:30 a.m. Tide will be high during our team round and the swell will be small, so plan accordingly. You will need to hug the cliff, hold inside position and catch waves inside to advance. We will need surfers in every division: shortboard, longboard and bodyboard to all step it up to succeed as a team. Your reward will be a great sand bar, dropping tide and offshores in the individual rounds.
**Reminder - there is no practice this afternoon. Surf where you can find it.**
See ya there,
