Los Cabos Open of Surf
By Justin Porter Biel
Surf fans from around the world descend on Los Cabos this month to watch the Los Cabos Open of Surf. A weeklong event packed with clean waves, sizzling sun, cool music, and late-night parties, it’s one reason June in Los Cabos is our favorite time of year.
Now in its sixth consecutive year, the Los Cabos Open of Surf is the largest professional surfing contest in Latin America. Hosted by the World Surf League, the event is a favorite of surfing pro’s, and a regular stop on the Women’s Qualifying Series.
The wave of choice for this year’s contest is the world famous Zippers, on Costa Azul beach. A fast, powerful wave that pumps hardest during summer months, Zippers is a right beach break over cobblestones. The pros on the circuit know Zippers for its steep drop, lippy shape, and its hollow curl near the beach.
While the best of the surfing world rip in the water, fans attending this free event will kick back for this once a year, Baja surfing experience.
