Dear Surfers, Parents and Friends, 

I am deeply saddened to be sending this letter.

Many of you have already heard of the sudden and tragic  passing of Sophia Bartlow on 1/28/2017. (Bruin Alumni 2008).


Thank you to all who have already reached out with love and support.


 The Surf team has established a perpetual award/scholarship to the Wilson Surfer who exudes the aloha spirit, positive vibe, and joy always displayed by Sophia.


I have known the Bartlows for 25 years . Sophia was a wonderful young lady who always brought smiles and warmth to those around her.  Her family is a spectacular example of the best of surf culture. Our prayers and love go out to Ava, Jericho and all of the Bartlows.


Please consider donating to honor Sophia  and her family.


Donations should be made to:


Wilson High School

Memo: Surf Team, Sophia

Please deliver all support to:  Tony Martinho or Meredith Heggie (Wilson Banker)


Thanks again,


Coach Tony Martinho

Wilson Surf Team
