Is your New Year's resolution to learn to surf? If your answer is yes, what better time than at the beginning of the year? Well yes, I know it's warmer in the summer but half the year will be gone by then! Get on those resolutions now, and come out Saturday!
I will give a brief tutorial to the beginners, then we'll be off to the water! If you're not new to surfing, come out anyway. Let's make it a great meetup!
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. 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 small, blue '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.
There's free street parking in the surrounding neighborhoods, but if you do use metered parking, I suggest you put in enough money for a couple hours and avoid the 1 hour parking spots. We gotta enjoy the morning!
See you soon!
