June 7 – 13 Cabo welcomes the return of the Los Cabos Open Surf to Playa Costa Azul. Since 2013 the Los Cabos Open Surf has been the premier professional surf and music event in Mexico. Each year young surfers from all over the world come to Cabo to compete in this World Surfing League (WSL) qualifying series and pro junior event. In order to compete in a junior event, the surfer must be no older than 19 years of age in December prior to the event. Surfers compete in three and four contestant heats and accumulate points towards qualifying for the World Tour and Championship.
Zipper’s Beach at Playa Costa Azul hosts the annual surf and music extravaganza. A miniature boardwalk is constructed to facilitate the event. Local vendors are on hand serving a variety of food and beverages, including a full bar, for the fans. The Los Cabos Open Surf competition begins just after sunrise and continues throughout the day. Locals and visitors gather in beach chairs, under umbrellas and large tents to witness truly great surfing from the Los Cabos Open Surf contestants.
As the sun sets, the party’s just beginning as each night features a different musical guest. A huge sound stage, complete with the latest electronics, provides the greatest musical entertainment venue in Cabo. General and reserved seating is available. The VIP area provides excellent viewing and wait service for your favorite beverages. This year the Los Cabos Open Surf & Music Festival welcomes the reggae rock sounds of Pepper! Their latest release “Ohana” is currently available on iTunes. Saturday evening headlines the internationally acclaimed Kinky performing their wildly popular blend of Latin rock, dance and techno hits. Popular local bands The Shamans along with Tim Lang and the Post Surf Crew will play sets during both nights of the Los Cabos Open Surf & Music Festival.
