The annual Los Cabos Open Surf Competition is ON!

The party is about to start on Zipper’s beach with the Los Cabos Open Surf Competition - June 11 through 17. Qualifying runs are early in the week with the main event towards the end. Surfers are already starting to arrive. Waves are big!

This Competition is for Pro Women and Junior Men.

If you are around it would be worth wandering down to take it in.

Is this still going to be on with a hurricane out there and very likely headed to Cabo?

butlerrk,

Have you ever noticed that just prior to a hurricane (anywhere) the area is usually inundated by surfers (due to the influx of BIG waves), so yeah, I'd say the competition is still on. Now depending the path the storm takes, it may be cut a bit short....... but they certainly are not going to cancel it because of big waves.

¡Diviértanse!

Totally can see and understand that. But...was wondering more about the day the storm would make landfall. But then again I suppose a tropical storm may not be the same as a hurricane. As Bud is expected to be a tropical storm by the time it makes landfall.

They were going strong today. The waves are massive. Will definitely be going tomorrow and the next day. Guess we’ll see what Thursday and Friday brings as there will likely be lots of rain.

Unusual Heavy rain in Cabo is NOT a good thing. The water runoff can wash out roads. (Major Highways) and resorts (RIU Santa Fe and the Palace grounds were underwater)

Tropical Storm Lydia last September was extremely unusual, but worse than many hurricanes that passed thru Cabo.
