Punta Mita Surf Events

Punta Mita surfing along the Bahia de Banderas draws tourists from all over the world.

This coming weekend Punta Mita is hosting two exciting surfing events. The 2nd Annual Punta Sayulita Longboard and SUP Classic takes place March 12 and 13. If last year's event is any indication, the beach will be lined with thousands of people watching international professional and amateur surgers compete. Surfers will compete in longboard and standup paddle surfing (SUP).

Last year's champions will return - Chuck Patterson from Dana Point, CA; Ikaika Kaway from Maui, Hawaii; Patricio Gonzalez from Sayulita; and Mary Osborne from Ventura, CA.

Maui Jim Sunglasses is sponsoring a Hawaiian team to compete. Surfers include the famous Gerry Lopez and Candice Appleby.

All funds raised from this event will benefit the Reef Check and Punta Sayulita Foundations.

The second exciting surf news is the Gerry Lopez SUP Camp. This 3 day clinic will be held March 14, 15, and 16 at the CINCO Watersports Center at Hotel des Artistes. Gerry will be teaching SUP techniques, yoga and healthy lifestyle tips, including diet, yoga, longevity, and his personal philosophy.

After spending the day in the water, Gerry will teach land lessons. This camp is geared toward intermediate and advanced surfers, but instructors are available to teach beginners. There are only 10 spots available in this camp.
