Club Surfers,

There is a possibility that we can pull off a club surf tomorrow. I will not be able to get the trailer, so bring your own board or stop at Rocky's and grab a soft top out of the Trailer.

Conditions will be too big for beginner's, but should be okay for intermediate surfers.

Please email me at or text me at 650-773-0936 if you are planning on attending. I'd like to make sure we have enough in attendance to pull it off.

Dunes Beach 9am.

HMB High Surf Team Results from the Hook

HMB High Surf Team results from the Hook:

HMB finished the regular season with a solid performance in clean and contestable surf at the Hook on Sunday, unperturbed by the high tide lulls and swing sets that made lining up the best waves a distinct challenge. The weather was pretty balmy to start and the forecast contrary south winds fortunately never showed, though the tide drain and mist later kept team on its toes.

Team Round:

HMB (60) took down rival Santa Cruz Moutain (45), doing the heaviest damage in the first two rounds where a remarkable 5 out of 6 men's shortboarders from HMB advanced. Many of our surfers had taken part in a Life Guard training swim qualifier the day prior, in a testament to the superb fitness of our surfers. Hunter Murison (1), Nate Feix (2) and Coel Miller (3) swept the first heat and Malcolm Feix (1) and Ryan Bair (3) advanced in the second. In women's shortboard Kaira Wallace (1) advanced. Men's longboard saw Coel (2) and Hunter (3) progress, while in women's longboard Kaira (1) also moved forward.

Individual Round:

In the alternate seed into the individual round Mitchell King asserted himself by advancing from men's shortboard (1) and longboard (2) with keen wave selection and energetic carving. Our favorite twin competitors Nikki Sorfleet also moved on in women's longboard (3) and Kacie Sorfleet in women's shortboard (3). Nate, Mitchell, Coel and Malcolm ended their run in quarter finals of men's shortboard, while Hunter and Mitchell made the semi-finals of men's longboard before retiring. Nikkie bowed out in women's longboard semis and her sister Kacie in women's shortboard semis after some newly inspired surfing. Freshman Ryan Bair stuck with the plan to get on the first set waves and rode them maturely to men's shortboard semis. Hunter did his best imitation of WSL Snapper Rocks victor Matt Wilkinson with a deadly backside attack through the early rounds, but the wave-starved shortboard final was not his friend. Kaira finished the season strongly with solid tactical positioning, improved fitness and adapted her game well to the shifty conditions.

Final Results:

Kaira Wallace: (3) women's shortboard, (1) women's longboard
Hunter Murison: (5) men's shortboard

Special shout out to Team Padua for providing a very tasty hot plate lunch to both the junior and senior high teams this weekend. Gino and Wendy - we really appreciate you going the extra mile. Tom Feix thanks for running the heat results.

Next up is the SSS State Championships in Oceanside the weekend of April 16th. I want to meet or speak with each of you over the next week or two to discuss individual training plans/techniques to work on for states. There will be only Sunday practices if conditions permit.

High School Surf Team State Championships Forms

High School Surf Team State Championships Forms:

Coaches will be submitting the team roster and fee for states this week, which will be covered by the Surf Club, but surfers will have to fill out two forms to take part: an "Individual Competition Entry Form" (for those who wish to take part in this additional event Monday, April 18) and "Student Membership" waiver (required for both team and individual events).

1) "Individual Competition Entry Form"

- Specify which individual events you wish to take part in - $50/event
- You must get a coach's signature on the form
- Surfers will send in their own individual entries, membership waiver and checks

2) "Student Membership" waiver

- Everyone must fill out the form online and submit directly
- Then print out form and include with your individual entry form with a check
- If not participating in individuals, print a copy send to the SSS

Let's try to get this all done by this weekend's practice for coach signatures. The drop-dead due date is April 4th, but by then many of the slots may be filled. Surfers are responsible for their own individual entries, payment and getting a coach's signature.

From Wendy Padua:

All Surf Club families are invited to come to the HMB Brewery Friday night, 2/26, from 7:00 - 10:00 for the great reggae/rock sounds of Redwood Roots, Gino Padua's groovin new band. What a fun way to kick off the Jetty Classic contest on Saturday (unless you have an early heat)!
