The Longboard Crew's goal is to have fun while generating funds and providing services for worthy causes such as:
Colette's Children's Home is one of our selections for our 2013-2014 causes to support. Celebrating 15 years of healing homelessness.
Also selected is Morgan's Wave of the Day Expression Session Fundraiser. This is our third year and the event raises funds each year for a local charitable cause. This year the proceeds go to Kevin Woyjeck Memorial Fund.
Member's ages range under 10 to over 75 years old.
Our members are well traveled and take excursions to remote areas of the world. When we get together it's normally just for fun in Surf City.
The club hosts tournaments, monthly meetings,
an amateur surf team for CSC events and other fun social events for its members. The membership fee is $40.00 per year for the family!

Our 2012 holiday party at Mario's was well attended. We had a complimentary all you can eat buffet and a canned food drive. We collected about $600 for our charitable causes.The 2012 awards were given out to Young Lioness, Maddie Comargo; Comeback Competitor, Joey Hawkins; Most Improved, Bill Brewer; Perpetual Trophy, Tim McCollum. Gary Sahagen was awarded the Huntington Beach Longboard Crew's Lifetime Achievement Award.
The Longboard Crew sent a team to the DLSA Gathering of the Tribes on January 5-6, 2013. Our team got ninth out of 17 teams. A great article about it appeared in the OC Register written by Laylan Connelly.
The 28th Annual Pier Paddle was held on February 2, 2013. The event was won by Shane Jones with a 5 minute and 55 second time. This set a new record for the race. It was low tide, small waves and no wind. Perfect conditions for a fast race. Noel Terrado was second with a time of 6 minutes and 37 seconds. Third place and also beating last year's time was Tim McCollum finishing at the 6 minute and 48 second mark. Thomas Da Silva, Sharon Lee and Maddie Comargo rounded out the top six with times of 7' 21", 7' 28" and 7' 48" respectfully. Laylan Connelly wrote an article which appeared with photos by Pat Fabian in the OC Register on February 5 in the Local section.
February 3, 2013 the Crew returned to the beach not to surf but to host the Surf City USA Marathon's Beer Garden for the sixth year. If you missed out you can join the fun at the 2014 event on February 2.
In March, the Master Chef filmed on the beach and many crew members participated. Tim McCollum had a starring role as an extra.
The Crew supported the Rincon Invitational with a team again for March 16, 2013. Thank you for coming up to surf Rincon and winning third place for wave sharing. Bill, Tim, Mike, Gary, Tony A., Shane, Lee, Wendy, Myra, Yvette, Hans, Jon, Pete, Dakota, Derek, Shon, Tony B. and Steve.
In April the crew served up the 13th Annual Robin Hauser Surf n Bowl. The surf was fun and so was the bowling. Thank you to all the participants and Jim Angeley for the vintage surfing monkey trophies. Results were:
Open Men 1st Gary S.
Open Men 2nd Steve H.

For May 2013 the club went traveling from Malibu to Swamis and there were waves up and down the coast. We were getting the team geared up for Malibu Boardriders' Call to the Wall in June. By the time June rolled around the team was ready to step up and meet the call. We sent a strong team up but met with problems from the get go. Injuries and judging aside it was a fantastic tournament with epic waves at the world famous Surfrider Beach. Imagine a perfect wave with only six surfers out. Maddie Camargo took first in her longboard division and fourth in her shortboard division. Todd Messick brought home a third place trophy. Many club members made it through a round or two.
Oceanside was next followed by another Malibu event in September for the surf team. The Blessing of the Waves and the HB City Contest for residents happened in September as well. Many members supported these events. Finally we attended the 24th Annual Dale Velzy Surf Classic and Luau at Doheny State Beach. It would have been Dale's 86th birthday! What a blast with Stewie taking home a first place! Way to go Mark!
October 2013 and summer finally arrives in Huntington Beach. Warm water and some offshores provide some much needed surf for us. Hope you goy some with the crew. The team hit La Jolla and Cardiff for a couple of coalition events. Tim attended La Jolla as a team of one. This represented one of our top team places for the year! Way to go Tim!
The Cardiff Reef Invitational in October was attended by a few more members and the team placed seventh out of 20 clubs that got invited. John, Jeremy and Gary placed third in their divisions. The camping was great and supporters were there in force. Thanks to Kathleen, Tim, Irena, Chris, Todd, Mark, Ted and Noel.
The Huntington Beach Longboard Crew's Surf Team headed for La Jolla in November for the Cardiff Surf Club's and the Pacific Beach Surf Club's Tourmaline Club Challenge. We camped all weekend at Tourmaline Beach Park. Great food, company and the team did quite well. Thank you to all who came down. Our team's finalists included John W. who got third in classic surfing. Awesome job by Maddie C. who got fifth in classic surfing and sixth in shortboard. Mark Stewart absolutely killed it all weekend with a third place in shortboard and taking home first place in classic surfing with some incredible waves in all his heats. Stewie also had fresh caught halibut served up for us after the awards ceremony! Gary S. won a third place in the presidents heat. Our team cumulated points based on how far you got in the contest. Jeremy G. made it to the semis, Stephanie D. advanced and Duncan M. advanced in both classic surfing and SUP heats. Sean R., and Larry C. were pitted against each other in their opening heat. They had a strategy to get points and it was Sean who went down in a show of personal sacrifice as he took one for the team. Thank you all!
