Though every season is surf season in Cabo, the Los Cabos Tourism Board is pleased to announce that June 9 -14 will mark the destination’s third annual Los Cabos Open of Surf; welcoming surfers from around the globe to ride the waves of the crystal blue waters surrounding the Baja Peninsula.
The festival will be held at the world-famous surf spot, Zippers Beach along Costa Azul, known for its 4-5 foot, fast, fun, lippy waves and will focus on a Qualifying Series (QS) 6000 women’s division competition as well as a co-ed pro junior event where surfers will compete for a massive prize purse and ever-important points toward qualification on the World Championship Tour. Not only is the Los Cabos Open of Surf the largest surf festival in Mexico and Latin America, but this year’s festival will also make a splash with music fans, as Donavon Frankenreiter, a popular artist among the surf community, will be performing a special concert on Friday, June 12th.
“We are thrilled to once again host this exciting event attracting surf aficionados and families alike to Los Cabos”, said Luis Palacios, Commercial Director of the Los Cabos Tourism Board. “Every year the festival is growing and aims to attract visitors with interests not just in surf but art, authentic cuisine, music and more.”
We’re super excited to have the best Jr’s in the world coming to Los Cabos to compete,” Says Chris Cote, Communications Director and Cultural Ambassador for the Los Cabos Open Of Surf. “Adding Pro Jr’s to the QS6000 Women’s event is going to give the spectators a really cool look at the future of our sport, and is the perfect compliment to the Women’s QS, an event that will spotlight the world’s best women surfers at a break that is perfect to showcase high performance surfing.” Cote went on to say, “The list of women coming down to compete in Los Cabos is amazing!”
