We'll be meeting at the circle, at the end of Windward Ave. This is basically at the intersection of Windward Ave and Ocean Front Walk. However, we will be near the beach where the giant grass circle is. Look at google maps in satellite view if you'd like to see the exact spot. I'll be holding a white 6'0" Lost fish board and wearing a black Quiksilver full-suit. We'll wait until about 8:45 for everyone to show up and then head down to the water.

For anyone who will be late - we will likely be surfing directly out from the circle, somewhat near the rock jetty. Look for the 'SMS' flag that I will be "installing" in the sand. See my pictures if you want to know what the flag looks like ahead of time. You'll find us in the water somewhere near the flag. The flag is small though, and we will likely drift in the water so I always recommend being on time if you don't know what some of us look like.

See you soon!
