Cowabunga Surf Extravaganza


by Terry Sovil

Cowabunga SurferOn October 31, 2009 Manzanillo hosted the Cowabunga Surf Extravaganza II Tournament. The event was by Secret Spot Surf Shop, Mi Paraiso Surf Shop, Juanitos and SOL. There were some free surf lessons, music, vendor stands by SOL, food, special event t-shirts, prizes and a lot of happy faces. It was held at Salvavides Beach (right behind the Open Air Market space in Santiago). The event started at 10am and ran until about 6pm with awards and prizes at the end.

The overall winner for the day was a young man, age 12, called Ban Ban who took the award for Best Trick. He is a fantastic surfer. Overall there were about 60 people that attended the event and 30 competitors over the course of the day. The waves were good for the event and non-competitive surfers and boogie boarders were present all day to enjoy the activities.

The day included various heats (competitions) in categories such as Best Costume, Best Wipeout etc. It was a great day for photos and a chance to watch Manzanillo's rising surfers show off their skills in sun, surf and sand of Manzanillo.
