Cabo’s National Surfing Tournament got off to a great start on Tuesday with the inaugural “Ceremony of the Sands “ – a ritual for opening every surf tournament, national or international.  Where surfers all bring sand from their own country or state to mix together as a symbol of unity.


In this national competition each of the 12 participating Mexican states paraded the streets of San Jose del Cabo before the sand ceremony. Over 200 surfers in all.


The competing began early yesterday morning and will continue until Sunday. Events are taking place on three of Cabo’s beaches - Costa Azul, La Roca and La Bocana. 

Luis Skeen de Alba, president of the Mexican Federation of Surfing, has christened Cabo as the surf capital of Mexico. This is because it the third major surf competition to be held in Cabo this year – after the National Youth Championships in June, and the international Los Cabos Open of Surf in July.


"This is unprecedented, never in the history of 54 years of surfing in Mexico, no state has hosted events in the same year, apart from Los Cabos, home to the World Los Cabos Open of Surfing. So we can say that right now Los Cabos is the capital of surfing in Mexico, " Alba said.


Alba invited everyone in Cabo to come and enjoy the competition and support Mexico’s top surfers. Reminding everyone that these surfers are also top athletes. Surfing is now an Olympic sport. And Cabo is the perfect place to practice and compete in this sport.
