On Sunday, September 30th, 2018, the recently revitalized Bay Cities Surf Club organized the third annual Hermosa Beach Hotdogger Championships Presented by Subaru Pacific at the Hermosa Beach Pier, southside. With a $3,500 cash purse with equal payouts for both men and women, the traditional surf contest attracted top surfers from all over the world with over 200 contestants ranging from ages 9 to 90. Division sponsors like San Onofre Surf Co., Sun Bum, Sector 9, Kinecta Federal Credit Union, Chevron and Hippy Tree stoked out all finalists. Mickey’s Deli provided the traditional surfer fare of pizza and their legendary “sauce sandwiches.” This year’s featured artist, Brian Bent, rode his kookbox (a 1930s styled surfboard) to catch the ceremonially “first wave” of the contest. Award Party was held down the beach at Naja’s Pizza with a special King Harbor Brewing Co.’s “Hotdogger Lager” on tap. Surfers were stoked on the premiere of The Bend presents “The Vault: The LeRoy Grannis Collection,” as well as “The Country Breakfast Band” ending the night.
