“The growth of SUP – welcoming thousands of spectators and top caliber professional athletes – has certainly propelled the region, especially Sayulita, into becoming a top surfing destination,” said Kevin Roberts, the event host of Punta Sayulita and Event Director of the Punta Sayulita Classic. “Moreover, given the region’s miles of pristine coastline offering excellent conditions for an array of outdoor pursuits coupled with year-round events and attractions, it’s no surprise that many have chosen to vacation in Riviera Nayarit or even call the destination their second home.”
In addition to the surfing and SUP race competitions held over the weekend, on Friday, March 8th, the festivities kick-off with a surfing clinic for special needs and underprivileged children under the supervision of renowned Malibu, CA longboard surfer, Jimmy Gamboa, and members of his TheraSURF Foundation along with other participating professionals and instructors from local Sayulita surf schools.
Moreover, in conjunction with honorary ambassador, James Pribram of the Eco Warrior Foundation and members from Project Save our Surf, a community-wide beach cleanup event is scheduled with an interactive-educational program following thereafter with a children’s interactive Reef Day art camp with local artist TrevaDea of Sayulita Art Camps.
Alaska Airlines, the official event airline sponsor, is offering a special airfare discount code ECMU117 to anyone travelling to Sayulita to compete or to simply take part in the weekend festivities.
