Registration Open for Walter Caloca Surf Open No. 8

Posted by admin October 12, 2018, under News | No Comments


 

This annual charity event held at San Miguel, Baja every year is one of the largest surf event in Ensenada and one of the few bi-national events in the Californias. This surfing event symbolizes that the ocean has no borders and surfing can bridge the divide between countries and cultures. More importantly, the event celebrates the life of one of Ensenada's most beloved surfers, Walter Caloca, who tragically passed away several years ago, but not before he spread his love throughout the region's surfing community and beyond.
 
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. Registration opens November 1st, 2018.
 
Baja Bound Surf Series

The binational surf series has been established for the 2018/19 season. The series will combine two surf contests in Baja and one in San Diego: The Walter Caloca Surf Open at San Miguel, The Dempsey Holder at Imperial Beach, CA., and The Baja Surf Club Invitational at San Miguel.
 
The series are 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 $5,000 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 kicked off with the Dempsey Holder held on September 22nd at Imperial Beach, CA.
 
The contest series dates are as follows:

Dempsey Holder -September 22nd -Imperial Beach, CA
Walter Caloca Surf Open - December 1st and 2nd - San Miguel, Ensenada
The Baja Surf Club Invitational - January 19th and 20th, 2019 - San Miguel, Ensenada. Double in points.
