3rd Annual URT WOMP, Bodysurfing Contest at North Beach - Sunday August 12th
It’s that time of year again! Grab your fins and your sunscreen and come out to Coronado’s North Beach (just South of Dog Beach) for the 3rd Annual URT WOMP.
This Sunday, August 12th, local Coronado clothing company, URT (like the sound a sea lion makes), will be putting on their self proudly proclaimed “world famous” bodysurfing competition.
The competition will consist of three divisions. The kids or sqURTs, 0-13 years in age, will start the event at 8AM. The OPEN division for all the ladies and gentlemen fourteen and up will square off at 10AM in fierce competition. At high noon the HANDPLANE division will end the day off on a high note as they bring their mostly homemade hand planes to the starting line. If you do not know what a hand plane is imagine attaching a cafeteria lunch tray to your hand and then bodysurfing with it.
The event has grown in popularity from the first two years and with a promising swell on the way it should prove to be one to remember. Come out and compete or just watch and show your support for a local company. Coffee, coconut water, and snacks will be provided.
