The Los Cabos Surf Open multi-day event is one of Mexico’s biggest surf festivals, and brings together some of the world’s best surfers to the competition held at Zippers, Costa Azul, in San José del Cabo. Beginning in 2013, the event started ASP 6-Star Men’s competition, and in 2014, it became the rst Women’s ASP 6-Star festival in Mexico. Huge crowds are once again expected for this 3rd Annual popular sur ng bonanza.
Zippers is described as a cobblestone right-hand wave that produces 8 to 10 foot waves during the summer. It is mainly a right point beach break and it breaks best on a solid south swell and medium tide.
It has its best shape at 4 to 5 feet, and the bottom is sand over boulders. The take-off is a short, steep fast drop and then it’s a fast “lippy” wave with a few good sections to hit! The inside is shallow over the rocks with a nice quick barrel section at the beach. The best board to ride is your favourite high- performance short board. Nobody can deny that Los Cabos is a world class destination that attracts surfers from all over. The incredible musical lineup for 2016 will include the reggae rock band from California: Pepper. This band has been a mainstay on festival and club stages for years. Since the band’s formation, they have released ve studio albums as well as one live album, and are on the verge of releasing the band’s latest, the highly anticipated, “Ohana”, now available on iTunes. On Saturday, June 11, from Monterrey, Nuevo Leon, Mexico, the internationally acclaimed and beloved party band, Kinky, will be hitting the stage performing the band’s incredible mix of Latin, rock, dance, techno, and just overall awesome brand of music. Supporting the headlining bands will be amazing local bands such as The Shamans, Tim Lang & The Post Surf Crew, among others. Both nights are totally free and all ages, open to the public.
