Can you feel the love? On Valentines Day weekend, URT be celebrating their love for the ocean by putting on the 1st Annual URT FLURT. The FLURT is a tandem surfing contest that takes places on the border of Dog Beach in Coronado, CA on Sunday February 12th starting at 10AM, but this contest comes with a furry surprise.
In an effort to show people that our love for the ocean knows no bounds they will have three very different divisions competing for their respective crowns: the “Human/Human” division, the “Human/Animal” division, and finally the “Animal/Animal” division which is also affectionately known as “Beast Mode.” That’s right people this is an animal tandem surfing contest.
Partner up with your friend, your mother, your pet pig, your “other” girlfriend, your love dove, your grade school crush, your P.E. teacher, your locker buddy, your HR department rep or just go ahead and sign up both of your neighbor’s dogs, but whatever you do don’t surf solo. URT does not discriminate when it comes to tandem surfing; the ocean always sorts it out.
Prizes will be given to the top three tandem teams that place in each division. Surfing animals will be watched very closely as there will be several volunteers in the water at all times. Animals must be equipped with a life jacket to be eligible to surf in the contest. If needed, several big boards will be available for tandem teams on a first come first serve basis. All contestants will receive an official URT FLURT event shirt upon signing up.
