The Huntington Beach Surf Team has been shut down for 2020 due to all the restrictions at each venue. In order to procure a permit for a surf event the county must be in a lower restriction category than we have now at all the venues here in California.
We are planning a gathering at Cruisers Pizza on 5th Street November 18, 2020 at 6:15pm.
Hope you can join us as we begin a renewal of the team for 2021, we hope!

Individual Competitor Ranking
League Scoring Guidelines:
The City of Huntington Beach has some events after the end of the summer. September 16-17 was the 47th Annual Huntington Beach City Surf contest, sponsored by The City of Huntington Beach Community Service Department, Huntington Surf & Sport and Dukes. Participation was limited to persons residing in the Huntington Beach Union High School District. Winners of each division received awards. Driver’s license or school ID with proof of age (birth certificate) must be presented before competing. Ages are as of contest date. Each participant received a contest T-shirt and food all weekend. The HB Surf Team had several members enter and do well.
October 21st was the Senior Surf Invitational. The City of Huntington Beach and the Huntington Beach Council on Aging (HBCOA) “invited” all surfers ages 50+ to register. Surfers competed on the south side of the pier and were judged on wave selection, maneuvers, fluidity and style. Food, goody bags and great awards for the winners made this a fun event for the older members of the HB Surf Team who did not go to the Cardiff coalition tournament hosted by the Swamis Surfing Association on the same day.
On Sunday the 22nd of October a third event was held at Goldenwest and PCH. The HB 80s event. This was the third event in the Triple Crown of Retro Surfing. All contestants had to ride a retro surfboard.
All these events were only $40 each for the entry fees.
The Coalition events ended for the year with Tourmaline, Cardiff and La Jolla Shores as the venues for these last three tournaments. The team ranked eighth at Tourmaline when Tim and Amy Reda won first and second place in their divisions (shown below):
TOURMALINE CLUB CLASSIC
|Senior Men 30 – 39 Results|
|Young Women 20 – 34|
The Cardiff event held October 21-22 had the HB Surf Team show with two members and get 11th place. Thank you to Larry and HK for representing HB. HK finished equal ninth and Larry just behind him.
The last coalition event for 2017 was hosted by the WindanSea Surf Club at La Jolla Shores on November 18-19, 2107. The team had a great showing with Jovan winning his division, Tim and River got 2nd and third in the 20-34 division. Acting team captain, HK got equal 10th. Good job HB Surf Team!! The team results:

A fun time was had with a capacity crowd for the screening 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.
Old boards with no cords is the mantra. We sent a very small team. We heard it was a fun gig with good surf. The results for the 2017 Logjam held at Pleasure Point on April 30th were:
