Surf 101 Lessons on Cloud 9

HSD's Andrea Holeman is teaching free "Surf 101" lessons in conjunction with Cloud 9 Medical Marijuana Dispensary in Ocean Beach this summer.  The first lesson is slated for this Sat, July 10 at 4:20pm.

"Surf 101" is not just a surf lesson, we spend about an hour in the classroom (patients can medicate) going over things like surfboard design, different types or breaks, how swells are formed, or just watching videos.  Then the class walks over to the beach for a surf session.  Andrea can provide lessons for first-time, beginner, or intermediate surfers.  Pleas sign up for the lesson at the front desk prior to Sat, as space is limited.

This should be a twice-a-month class.  The next class is scheduled for Sat July 31 at 1:20.  Cloud 9 hosts their monthly BBQ the last Sat of each month, so we thought it would be fun to medicate and surf FIRST.  Please join us!

Patients, friends, beginners, pros- all are welcome to join us for this FREE surf lesson/session.

Happenings at PB Surf Shop

Thought this might be of interest, from Pacific Beach Surf Shop:

Next up for the following weekend [July 17th 7:30-11:00pm] we are having A VERY special guest Glenn Hening with an Audio Visual Presentation of the untold story behind one of the most significant milestones in the history of surfing. As Surfrider Takes off - The Visionary Surfers of 1984 lead the courage and teamwork that created the Surfrider Foundation. The story is entertaining and inspirational. 

Right afterward is the band FMera as they extrapolate its post- Shoegazeresque era influences from bands such as Rid, Jets to Brazil, Interpol, the Smiths and Helio Sequence and masterfully weaves them into a mechanically timed and melodically spaced equation of undulating sounds. Heavy layers of rhythm guitar laced and chimed with notes ring high above the vocals, subdued in tone but not in volume. With lyrics such as "turning on the satellites" and "slowing down... break release", words are not just notes on a piece of paper; rather they are intricate layers of the melodies that form the mind and soul of FMera.

So as the summer starts off you are again invited to take part in the relentless unfolding musicality and history of surfing that will be happening at Your Local Surf Shop in San Diego. Thank you for your time and we look forward to seeing you at our shows.
