Calling ALL Pepperdine surfers! Whether you're just learning or you shred, we want you!
This year's plan:
1. Go surfing together and have fun!
2. Compete in the NSSA College SW Team season and Explorer contests.
3. Make surf team t-shirts, hoodies, and other gear.
-Our mission is to share our stoke for the ocean with surfers on campus through a community of supportive and driven individuals, and to excel competitively.
All you need is access to a surfboard and wetsuit. Even if you just learned, the more surfers the better!
The Pepperdine Surf Team is part of the NSSA Southwest College Team Division in the Fall, and transitions into the NSSA Southwest Explorer Division second semester as the college team season comes to an end. Not everyone is required or will be able to surf in the contests. We need the best six male shortboarders, the best two women shortboarders, and one longboarder. The Explorer season has no limit on competitive members.
Practices and Other Events:
Practice time and location depends on the conditions. Practices are usually a fun time of encouraging each other to go bigger and harder - the more surfers the better. If you're interested in joining practice, please contact the team to make sure you're on the text message and email list. We also try to hold other fun events together such as a road trips, a Santa costume expression session, and a missions-surf trip is on the horizon. We meet every Wednesday night at 7 o'clock in various locations. Meetings include things like condition dependent team practices, important messages, and "smoovies" (surf movies).
Go Mad Ventures (Amy Johnson), Sticky Bumps, The Surf Channel, and Lets Party Traction.
**It is pertinent to note that there are two sides to our club: we have a competitive (six male short boarders, two female short boarders, and one long boarder during team season, and unlimited during explorer season), and a noncompetitive side. As a noncompetitive member, one can expect to practice with the team, attend fun meetings with food and surf movies, take surf trips, be involved in fundraisers/events on and off campus, or even travel to competitions to support the team.
Contact us if you're interested in joining the Pepperdine Surf Team this season, or if you know of anyone who might be interested. Can't wait to hear from you!
