Nice write up by the Chronicle's Bruce Jenkins.
I wish I woulda known about this contest, but I didn't see the sign for it until I stopped in by coincidence at a surf shop on the day it was taking place. Not that I'm any good at body surfing, really, but I've long been stoked by the example of Judith Sheridan and the one or two other folks on this board who bodysurf. (I think one of the guys has moved to the east coast at this point.) I've even been heckled for bodysurfing, so I think I must belong to this crew in some vague fashion or other.
SO awesome, well done everybody!
