Annual Sayulita Surfing Tournament, a Second-Year Success

Published Mar 16, 2011, 5:55pm - (Updated Nov 28, 2011, 6:55pm)


The Second Annual Punta Sayulita Longboard and SUP Classic wrapped up successfully this past weekend. Throughout the three-day event, local and international competitors gathered in Sayulita in a convivial atmosphere largely provided by the organizers and sponsors, who created an event that far exceeded the previous year. Acclaimed performer Mishka was in hand to perform an excellent free concert at the beach on Saturday evening. And as in the previous year, a traditional Huichol ceremony served as a perfect opening, blessing the event, its participants and attendees. One of the participants, Slater Trout from Hawaii, took home top honors in the SUP 10K Distance Race and, upon returning home, praised the event in his blog:

Kevin Roberts and his crew sure know how to put on an event!  This was one of those events that you don’t want to miss just cause it is so much fun. Sayulita is this very cool little surf town just north of Puerto Vallarta, the locals were super welcoming, the accommodations were so nice, the food was great, the waves were small this weekend but fun, it was a diverse group of competitors from all over competing in longboard, mens and womens, SUP wave riding and racing and they even had a short fun race. The local surf talent was awesome.
