Custom Chill Out trophies this year

Ken Mueller (tall guy) was kind enough to craft some great trophies in his wood shop again this year for the Chill Out so if you see Ken at the awards dinner be sure to give him a ‘Hi Five’. We all helped sand and varnish, but that’s a fraction of the real work involved.

Grom Infusion

Say what you will about groms (always under foot, clogging up the beach and surf, etc.), but they are our future and we love to see them in the club. Whether it’s at the Family picnic, the menehune event at the Big Chill Out or at our monthly meeting, they’re a welcome addition and a constant reminder that surfing is something special that should be shared. The April Club meeting featured two presentations by some of our younger members and their love of the ocean was crystal clear.

Sascha, a P-town based second grader, received a special accommodation from the Club for her essay on Oceans. Sascha waxed poetic on the special characteristics of the ocean and why Big Blue means so much to her. On behalf of the club, Izzy Szczepaniak presented Sascha with a certificate and one week tuition for …

Ride-A-Wave Saturday, May 12, 2012  Cowell’s Beach Santa Cruz

Saturday, May 12, 2012, Cowell’s Beach, Santa Cruz

Under partly cloudy skies, 35 children and young adults with special needs gathered at Cowell’s Beach for a day with the Ride-A-Wave founder Danny Cortazzo and his spirited staff of volunteers to participate in surfing, kayaking, boogie boarding and have a fun day on the beach.

This year my son Brennan had the opportunity to be a participant.  We met the “check-in staff” at the Cowell’s Beach parking lot at 8:30AM, took care of paperwork and were assigned his “beach buddy” Lisa Ryner (PPSC member).  A “beach buddy” is a volunteer who stays with the participant the whole time making sure his or her special needs are met, that they have an opportunity to participate in all the water activities if they want to, give them some encouragement if they need it, and just have …

Kurt Munchmeyer in Bird Huffman’s Shed

This place was a trip.  Bird (in the background) has a few boards, huh?

Bird loaned vintage boards to the Windansea guys who took 1st at the Log Jam this year.  He said I could borrow one for next year.  Nice guy!

Kurt, Rebecca and I were in awe of this collection.
It’s near the SD airport.

Gary Leong (one of our earliest club members) went down to Santa Barbara to compete in a Stand Up Paddle contest. On his way back Gary stayed a couple of days with us and we had a blast. He not only helped me fix a sink faucet but also got me back in the water!!

Gary is the “Thomas Edison” of the PPSC and always comes up with the most creative ideas. He along with Chris Sangiovani have the most inventive and out of the box minds in the surf world.

Bob Gruber 1944-2009, a major player with the PPSC

Posted on Jan 21, 2010 by PPSC in Member News. Comments Off on Bob Gruber 1944-2009, a major player with the PPSC

Bob Gruber joined the PPSC in 1988 during the first Surfari to the Santa Barbara area. He was great friends with Cam Pierce, grew up surfing Southern California and lived in Seal Beach for many years. Bob and his company, CEMCO, were generous supporters of the PPSC and all its charitable events. Despite living in Seal Beach he became a regular at all our surfaris, Surf Expos, Big Chill Outs and just surfing with us in Pacifica.

A few weeks ago Bob had a massive heart attack and passed at the young age of 66. Those years were packed with energy, love and enthusiasm. He not only surfed but was an accomplished sailor and fisherman. The ocean along with his family was the love of his life. Bob leaves behind his loving wife, Jenny Gruber, three year old son …
