Wow what a day!

This morning saw some poor conditions but the guys and gals out there crushed it! This afternoon that wind picked up and made things a bit… challenging. We ended up having to call the Master’s, HP Women’s, and HP Men’s heats. The plan to to make up for it on Sunday and stay tuned for that. Today’s results. friday_heats_2017_score

As a reminder to competitors:

The only place to enter the water for the surf contest zone is the Cowells staircase or beach. Due to safety limitations set by the city the following areas are banned for entering the water: the Surfer Statue, Lighthouse Staircase, cliffs, and/or It’s beach. Any competitors caught by an official entering the water in this way will face a DQ.

Please be sure to be prepared and leave time for the 5 min paddle!

Hello paddle surfers!

We are a month away from the event and we are adding some heats! SUP at the Lane is getting some more spots. If you are on the waitlist you’ll be contacted this weekend. Check your inboxes everyone!

Other surfing categories are filling up and are going to waitlist. There is still a small amount of room in our time window and if we get a category that has a full waitlisted heat we will try to add it (looking at you HP Folks).

See you in Santa Cruz soon!
