45 contestants from across the US were on hand and battled for top honors and a share of the $2,500 cash purse. Local riders held their own against some of the sport’s top talent as Jake Sieler won the junior Bodyboard division and local Mason Adsit took second. Men’s Bodyboard was won by Kyler Bill of Utah.
