Sun, sand, surf and reggae at the Punta Sayulita Longboard and SUP Classic 2013
It’s on again the 4th Annual Punta Sayulita Longboard Stand-Up Classic taking place from the 8th to the 10th of March in beautiful Sayulita, Mexico. Bringing together the best long boarders and stand-up paddlers competing against each other to see who can pull of the best floater, cut-back, cross step and hang ten over two days of intense competition.
Activities get underway on Friday the 8th of March with a free surf clinic for special needs and under privileged children followed by a beach clean up organised by former pro surfer James Primbram and an eco art class organised by local Sayulita artist Treva Dea. What better way to start the Punta Sayulita Longboard and Stand up Classic than by giving a little bit back to nature and make beautiful Punta Sayulita even more spectacular?
The events for the Punta Sayulita Longboard & SUP Classic get underway at 8am Saturday the 9th of March with the surf competitions being held, watch Long boarders Darren Eudaly and Mary Osborne competeing to see if they can finish ahead of their competitors. It’s all about getting that perfect wave.
At 12pm the Offshore Elite SUP race gets underway this event promises to push competitors to the limit as they race around the one mile course four times, a true test of endurance. After an intense day of competition, competitors and fans can relax to the soothing sounds of world renowned Reggae musician Mishka who is giving a benefit concert starting at 8pm. Funds raised from the concert and the Classic will go to the Reef Check Foundation and The Punta Sayulita Foundation.
The following day will see the surf competitors in the water at 8 am and the truly gruelling Punta to Punta SUP Distance Race will start at 11am, this event consists of paddling ten kilometres over open water to see who crosses the line first. After the close of the day’s competition an expression session will be held, where surfers and paddlers compete in a non judged competition with no prize money. It is an opportunity for competitors to engage in a bit of fun freestyle surfing where anything goes.
The final event at the Punta Sayulita Longboard SUP Classic 2013 is the Classic Award Dinner Fiesta to be held down at the waterfront featuring a typical Mexican Buffet, live music and a raffle. After an intensive weekend of surf where better to unwind than in one of our apartments in Puerto Vallarta.
