Coco Nogales, a professional surfer and local of Puerto Escondido, is putting on a surf contest April 29th and 30th, 2010 in Oaxaca, Mexico. The event is called “The Coco Nogales Surf Challenge – For the Future Stars” and is being hosted in conjunction with Hurley and Red Bull.
The prizes for the event will total approximately 30,000 pesos (about 3,000 USD), and 20 to 30 surfboards will be given away to local groms who can’t afford to buy boards.
I don’t think the contest has an official website but for more information, you can email [email protected] or call in Mexico (954) 101-6452. Video of Coco and Puerto Escondido below:[vsw id=”vb8ZEULQEXI” source=”youtube” width=”425″ height=”344″ autoplay=”no”]
