San Elijo Surf Team


2018-2019 Season 

Hello SEMS Surfers & Parents:


Welcome newcomers and returning surfers. This will be our 9th season of the San Elijo Surf Team (SEST). 

Our club & team relies heavily on parent volunteers - parents are encouraged to surf with the kids and come down to the beach at practice times for support. If you would like to volunteer or have a surf industry "hook up", please send an email to: [email protected]

Practices may be cancelled due to inclement weather, large surf, rain/ run off and potential unforeseen events. We will notify parents of last minute cancellations as soon as possible. Please check your email, or our instagram account prior to practice if you have any doubt that practice will run.  Also, sign up on our Remind account to receive last minute notifications. 

New this year:

This season, we will have a winter break.  Last year, we had too many practices cancelled due to rain/ runoff and large surf conditions. The season will run from October to mid December, then we will go on winter break from mid December to March.  Surf team activities will resume in early March  and end in April culminating in a surf team party possibly in May.
