This past Sunday, Sept. 8, local company URT Inc. put on the Ninth Annual URT WOMP Bodysurfing Competition at North Beach. All proceeds from ticket sales went to One More Wave which is a San Diego based Non Profit that provides wounded and disabled veterans with customized surfing equipment and community.

With a solid 2-4 ft. swell and a little wind from the South West the stage was set. The weather was hot, but the competition was hotter. One hundred contestants applied sunscreen-like warpaint as they battled it out heat after heat heat until there was only one winner. 

There were three divisions: Men’s, Women’s and SqURTs (7-14 years old).

The first to finish was the Men’s Winners: first place - Donald Cheetham; second place - Rob Garnet; third place - Xavier Tongson.

Women Winners: first place - Meredith Rose; second place - Daryl Dawson; third place - Brooke Keating. 

SqURT Winners: first place - Drue Wall, second place - Hickey; third place - Aiello.
