Baja Surf Club Invitational returns after more than 50 years

Surfersvillage Global Surf News, 21 January, 2016 - The Baja Surf Club Invitational has returned after 50 years of absence. Nacho Felix, founder of the club gave an emotional speech to all the surfers in the event: 'This is the birthplace of Mexican Surfing and the gathering place for surfers since the 60's, the souls of many good surfers of this region are here'.

He remembered Windansea Surf Club champions like Skip Frye, as well as great surf performances of Miki Dora, and David Nuuhiwa. 'Keep this tradition alive'.

We were also honored to have with us Luis Skeen, President of the Mexican Surfing Federation who also commented on the importance of bringing back this historic event.

With perfect waves running 8 to 12 feet (same day the Todos Santos challenge was on) all the surfer's had a blast. Local surfer Kevin Meza won the event and the series.

San Diego surfer Demi Buesteri  won in the women's division, and Californian Chloe Buckley was crowned champion of the Baja Bound Surf Series.

The Baja Surf Club won for the first time in 50 years the Baja Surf Club Invitational. Thanks to our main sponsor Fu Manchu, the art of surf and skate, as well as Wildcoast, Baja Bound Insurance, and United Athletes of the Pacific Ocean-UAPO for your support.
