Mexican National Surfing Championships Scheduled For September in Rosarito Beach
For the first time in its history, the Mexican National Surfing Championships will be held in Rosarito Beach this Sept. 19 through Sept. 23, according to Alex Vega Meza, president of the Mexican Surfing Federation.

Vega announced the competition on June 19 at the Rosarito Beach Hotel, which will host the event.

Twenty-eight member teams of amateurs from each of Mexico ’s 14 states will compete in 10 categories. They are the finalists from previous competitions held in Ixtapa and Cancun .

From the Rosarito event, a 28-member Mexican national team will be selected to compete at the Pan-American championships in November in Chile and the world championships next May in Portugal , Vega said.

At the September event in Rosarito, up to 40 entries will be accepted for an open competition which will feature trophies and prize money and be held in conjunction with the championships.

About 5,000 people are expected to attend the competition, which also will include contests, music and other entertainment, Vega said. Registration and other details are available at www.rosarito.org

Rosarito was chosen for this year’s championships because of its proximity to “ California , the Mecca of surfing,” and because Rosarito city officials and business leaders were very supportive of the event, Vega said.

“And it has good waves,” Vega added of Rosarito, which includes famous K-38 among surfing spots along its 20 miles of coastline.

Among community leaders who attended the conference announcing the championships were City Councilman Raul Aragon, Convention & Visitors Bureau President Cesar Rivera, Restaurant Association President Ricardo Moreno, plus others.

Leading Rosarito surfers also attended.

“This is an exciting event for the city of Rosarito ,” said Laura Torres, president of the Hotel & Motel Association and vice president of the host hotel. “We look forward to welcoming the surfers, their friends and families and many fans.”
