Congratulations HMB High Surf Team on Dual meet win over Harbor!

Congratulations HMB High Surf Team on Dual meet win over Harbor!

HMB prevailed by 83 to 26 over Harbor High

HMB's deeper bench of surfers really stepped it up at Manresa, despite missing a couple veteran team members against Harbor's leaner, rebuilding program. Once again we had at least 1 individual finalist in every category and 2 finalists in 3 events. HMB is now 3 for 3 wins so far this season with 2 events left to go at Pleasure Point and The Lane.

Conditions were sublimely groomed in the morning, with light offshores and shoulder-to-head-high peeling mostly left-breaking waves at high tide, favoring our heavily goofy-foot biased team. Tide plunged over the course of day and the left turned into a mosh-pit of sectioning close-outs, forcing many of our finalists to switch to their backhand on the right-breaking sandbar. HMB made the adjustment with style to spare.



Special mention goes out for several "firsts" and highlights. Freshman Thomas Lundgard made his first final in shortboard with some very consistent and smart rail-to-rail heat surfing. Junior Konrad Wallace notched his first victory in longboard finals with combination of stylish cross-stepping, fades and cutbacks. Sophomore Luke Eveslage made a strong statement with his first longboard final. Freshman Kaira Wallace was the only double-finalist in women's shortboard and longboard in a test of will and stamina. Freshmen Hunter Murison and Malcolm Feix both made body board finals, keeping our streak alive.

Body Board: Malcolm Feix 3rd, Hunter Murison 4th
Women's Longboard: Kaira Wallace 2nd
Men's Longboard: Konrad Wallace 1st, Luke Eveslage 5th
Women's Shortboard: Kaira Wallace 2nd, Hannah Tonnessen 6th
Men's Shortboard: Thomas Lundgard 6th

***Finalists have all received their SC SSL T-Shirts. I will have them available for the rest of the team at the next couple practices or you can contact me directly.

Fantastic job HMB!
Coach Mike

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.
