Summer 2017

Posted on Updated on

A fun time was had with a capacity crowd for the sreening of “Forgotten Island of Santosha” at Mario’s on April 19, 2017. New members received recognition and the talk story was epic as usual.

HB Cult Magazine hosted Locals Appreciation Day on April 29 had a fun pro-am surf contest at Goldenwest and PCH. The highlight was Sugar the surfing dog! Thank you for the great event!

We cancelled the Surf n Bowl. Next year we may change the surfing venue to avoid the pier crowds. Happy springtime to all! We did not send our team to Santa Cruz for the Logjam or the Steamer Lane Classic on Memorial Day weekend. Congrats to team Windansea Surf Club for sweeping the other clubs at both events up north! We are sorry to have to miss these events this year. The Malibu Boardriders’ Call to the Wall had twenty teams with over 300 surfers this year. The HB Surf Team came in 11th with Long Beach edging us out by 10 points. The biggest challenge was keeping to under 6 waves. Most of us had problems keeping track as we are use to six waves. Regardless the team did very well with early wins by Kirra Kehoe, Drew Milton, Noel Terrado, Scott English, Gary Sahagen and Chris Kinner. If we had done the paddle race and came in last we would have passed Long Beach and Ventura. Thank you to all the team members including Ted Lancaster who made the valiant effort to surf against Steve Bigler in the final. Thanks to Bobby Friedman and Alexia who placed third in Tandem. Kristina Hehl came up to surf a shortboard heat taking out two San Diego Surfing Ladies members. Riley and Spencer Grant came up with their family for the weekend. Tim Reda had a heartbreak heat in the first round bu still gave us team points. Team points were contributed by all top two finishers in each division.

Oceanside was next as the OLSC held its 33rd Annual Surf Contest and Beach Festival with vendors, live music, raffles and a beer garden. Our HB Surf Team competed against 15 other clubs from California and one club from Texas! We barely beat the Texas club who ended up in 12th place, we got 11th. Our team was fairly small with Tim, Scott, Drew, Joseph, Gary, Riley, Spencer and Jovan Smith-Scott. We brought a videographer, Ray Allen from Ventura. Jovan and Gary Sahagen were the only finalists. Jovan placed 6th in 15-19 Jr Men and in the 60-69 division where Gary placed fifth (and a third place in the presidential heat). Thank you to all the team members who came down and contributed the points!

Thank you to all the team sponsors and donors who helped get us down to Oceanside and both Malibu events!

Malibu Surfing Association’s Malibu Classic was on September 9-10, 2017. We had eleven surfers from Huntington Beach go. Kirra Kehoe made the finals in her division and got fifth overall. Tim Reda and Tim McCollum advanced. Our team did well finishing in the middle of the field of over 20 teams/clubs. Thank you to Eldon, Barry, James, Kenny, Christina, Pamela, Glenn, Priscilla, Lenny, Bob and Lee who stepped up and really helped our younger surf team members get to the meets with almost $300 raised by these generous members. A note from Jovan: “So stoked to be a part of the Huntington Beach Longboard Crew and thank you so much to anyone who donated, it really means the world to me and my family. It’s really an honor getting to surf with such rad people. Thank you”

We have lots of our members entered in the End of Summer HB City Surf Contest September 16-17, 2017. Results will be posted in the next blog entry.
