Register for the Rosarito Beach Surf Open!

Posted by admin July 20, 2016, under News | No Comments

The Rosarito Beach Surf Open is back! On August 27th and 28th, 2016, the Rosarito Beach Surf open will be held in front of the Rosarito Beach Hotel in conjunction with the annual Baja Sand Festival.
 

 
The surf contest will be the first stop on the 2016-2017 Baja Bound Surf Series presented by UAPO, WiLDCOAST and Baja Bound Insurance. Competitors in the Men's and Women's Open Divisions will accumulate points towards the $3,000 prize purse for the top three competitors of all four Baja Bound Surf Series contests.
 
The series will be organized by UAPO, 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."
 
The surf series will kick off with the Rosarito Beach Surf Open on August 27th-28th at Rosarito Beach (in front of Rosarito Beach Hotel). Registration is available below.
