An international bodyboarding contest at one of Mexico’s premier beach breaks
The legendary beachbreak of Punta Colorada, Mexico will play host to a major international bodyboarding contest his August, boasting a massive $15,000 prize purse.
The 2015 Colorada Pro is a men’s and women’s international bodyboarding event which will attract some of the best athletes in the world to participate in two categories taking place from August 1 to August 16.
Contest organiser Clive Richter said the event aims to raise awareness for the Punta Colorada wave, which has been under threat due to development in the area (as highlighted in our “waves under threat” feature in Issue #203).
The competition is also to raise awareness to try and save this wave,” Mr Richter said.
