This annual charity event is one of the largest surf events in Ensenada and one of the few bi-national events in the Californias. With youth competitors from the United States and México, spectators, music, prizes and other entertainment, this year’s event is expected to be a tremendous success. Proceeds from the event will support UAPO’s efforts to promote a bi-national surfing experience among youths on both sides of the US/Mexico border. Sign up online now! Viva Walter!
 

Baja Bound Surf Series
 

A brand new binational surf series has been established for the 2015 season. The series will combine three surf contests in Baja and San Diego: The Walter Caloca Surf Open at San Miguel, The Dempsey Holder in Imperial Beach, and the Paradise Cove Surf Open at Teresa's in Rosarito.
 
The new series will be organized by UAPO (United Athletes of the Pacific Ocean), WiLDCOAST and Baja Bound Insurance, with the goal of promoting youth surfing, cultural exchange and environmental issues shared by the US and Mexico. "Surfing in Mexico started in the sixties because of surfers traveling the coast searching for waves" says UAPO President Alfredo Ramirez. "It didn't matter if they were in Alta California or Baja California - friendships were created, surf clubs were born, and it produced a community beyond borders. This new surf series is a testament to the idea of one ocean, one passion."
 
Baja Bound Insurance will be putting up a prize purse of $2,500 that will be awarded to the top three open men's and open women's points leaders at the third and final contest. The surf series will kick off with the Walter Caloca Surf open on March 28th-29th at San Miguel, the iconic pointbreak in Ensenada. Registration is available online at www.uaposurf.com
 
The contest series dates are as follows:
 
Walter Caloca Surf Open - March 28th-29th - San Miguel, Ensenada
The Dempsey Holder Ocean Festival - September 20th - Imperial Beach, San Diego
The Paradise Cove Surf Open - November 14th-15th - Teresas, Rosarito

This year, UAPO is partnering again with WiLDCOAST to provide promotion in the U.S. and Mexico, outreach and logistical support. San Diego County and Baja California surfers will join together again for the 5th annual Walter Caloca at San Miguel for a day of competition and celebration of our collective coastal region. The event will provide not only an organized surfing competition experience for many under-served youths in San Diego County and Baja California, but also an opportunity to engage with fellow surfers from across the border. The event will be part of a weekend of surf festivities in Ensenada.
