DNO Surf Team Members and Parents:
Welcome to Diegueno Surf Team 2023/24 season.The team will compete in the Scholastic Surf Series in the San Diego Middle School Division 1 and the State Middle School Championships. Students in the 6th-8th grade may participate on the surf team to compete or just improve their surfing skills. Male & female students can compete in Shortboard, Longboard and Bodyboard.


Our practices are on Wednesdays from 3:15-5:00pm at Grandview in Leucadia. Season begins late August and ends early May. There will also be a swim test that students must pass in order to participate. Students will not be permitted to participate if completed forms and team fees have not been received (see below).

*Returning surfers will have priority. If we exceed 30 surfers we will have tryouts at the first practice to determine the remainder of the team.

Surf Contests:

5 regular season team competitions are scheduled on Saturday mornings beginning in October and ending around April; State competition is typically scheduled for end of April/May. Visit www.surfsss.org for more info on rules, contest locations and results. If your grom wants to enter State Champs it’s an additional $70 per rider due prior to the contest. Scholastic Surf Series contest days & team practices are subject to change & cancellations due to rain, water quality, holidays, poor & dangerous surf conditions.
