Virginia Beach, VA - Wounded Warriors from around the East Coast were in Virginia Beach Sunday for a surfing competition.

Volunteers helped run training programs for eight weeks leading up to the day's event.

Sixteen people from Hampton Roads, North Carolina and Florida were then chosen to compete.

Participants say surfing is an amazing tool in the healing process.

Six months ago one of the competitors was in a wheelchair and Sunday she was able to stand on a surfboard.
