HMB High Surf Team Practice Schedule:

Hope you are all having a great holiday break and a swell New Year. The high school squad will begin practicing again on Sunday (Jan- 5) at 9 a.m. at Kelly. The forecast looks very good with a moderate swell, light offshores and a rising tide. Assuming that forecast is accurate, we will have heats to kick off 2014 as our next competition is only 2-weeks away on January 18th at Pleasure Point.

See ya there,
Mike, Kerri, Chris

HMB High Surf Team Practice Schedule:

1) Friday - Kelly 3 pm
2) Sunday - Roosevelt 9 am

Hang tough, you're almost through with finals. We may get lucky as the winds mellow out Friday and Sunday in between squalls, though the seas may still be a bit raw. Saturday and Sunday some longer-period swell hits and we may need to seek a little more shelter. Please keep a weather eye on the email if we change the practice location last minute to adjust to the conditions.

See ya there,
Your coaches

Hoping the swell backs off and the winds stay favorable - we will be at Kelly Tuesday 12.17.13 @ 6:30am.... Marty will check Kelly and I will be looking at Dunes to compare notes... we will send a text to the group if there is to be any change. But it should be good somewhere!

HMB High Surf Team Practice Schedule:

As a reminder to the high school squad following yesterday's team meeting, all practices through finals week will NOT be awarding roster points. They will still be held, but if you need to study for finals you will not be penalized by missing out on any participation or heat points. On the other hand, if you need a study break and want to blow off some steam, by all means "drop in."

1) Friday Dec-13 4 pm Roosevelt
2) Sunday Dec-15 9 am Roosevelt

Solid swell is back in the forecast for both days, though we may be "unlucky" on Friday-the-13th with onshores. Even bigger swell forecast for Sunday and offshores. Please look for updates on the day. We will have an abbreviated practice schedule for Xmas and New Years weeks, but may call practices for those still around if conditions look favorable and the demand is there.

*****PLEASE NOTE THE DATE OF THE NEXT HIGH SCHOOL COMP IS JAN-18 AT PLEASURE POINT, WHICH IS A HOLIDAY WEEKEND. THE SCSSL JUST RECONFIRMED THIS DATE. IF YOU HAVE MADE PREVIOUS PLANS AND CANNOT COMPETE, PLEASE LET US KNOW ASAP, SO WE CAN GIVE OTHERS THE SLOT.*****

We are also considering an upcoming visit to "House of Air" trampoline park at Crissy Fields to work on our airs and team-building. This event will be open to all Club and team surfers for both middle- and high-schoolers. We will post further details when we have them. Check it out at: http://www.houseofair.com/about/park/

Hi Folks!

Looks like we may get a couple windows for the high school squad to practice later this week if we're lucky. Let's start with this format and adapt if Mother Nature has something else in store:

1) Friday Montara 4 pm - smaller swell and south winds may blow us here.

2) Sunday Kelly 9 am - swell will rebuild later, but East winds could grace us in morning.

Hope you all had a great break!

Your Coaches,

Mike, Kerri, Chris

NO Practice - conditions are not working in our favor - Tuesday 12.2

Till next time

There will be no formal practices for the high school squad this long weekend; so enjoy the swell and east winds. Buddy up with your teammates. If you wish to join in and help out with the club surfers at Dunes on Sunday at 9 a.m. that would also be swell.

Again, fantastic job at Manresa last weekend. But make sure you take advantage of the break to get caught up on any missing assignments with school and make one last push to finish the quarter strong. We will be discussing the importance of academics with a few surfers after the break to avoid this becoming a factor for the roster ahead of our rescheduled contest on Jan-18 at Pleasure Point: http://www.scsurfleague.org/

Hope you all had a great Thanksgiving!

Your Coaches,

SCSSL Middle School Competition at Manresa State Beach

The third Middle School contest of the Santa Cruz Scholastic Surf League took place this past Saturday, November 23rd. The contest had to be moved from the Hook to Manresa State Beach of Santa Cruz due to very small surf in the 1 to 2 foot range. Cunha surfed against Mission Hills, the top rated school in the league, and was defeated in the team round by a score of 77 to 49. Considering the terrible conditions, not Half Moon Bay surfers prefer type of surf, the Cunha competitors surfed very well.

All was not lost as three Cunha team riders advanced all the way to the finals:

Emma Stone surfed her way to the finals in two division and took 2nd place in Girl's longboard and Girl's shortboard. Ella Catalano-Dockins took 5th place in Girl's shortboard while Cunha's very own Clay Johnson took 4th place in Boy's Longboard.

Fun was had by all the competitors as we look forward to our next contest on January 19th, 2014 at the Hook in Santa Cruz.
