The 2nd Annual Punta Sayulita Longboard & Stand-Up Paddle Classic is set to take place this weekend, March 12 – 13, 2011 in the surfside village of Sayulita, Mexico, just north of the Punta de Mita peninsula in Riviera Nayarit.

With the participation of top competitors, the 2nd Annual Punta Sayulita Longboard & Stand-Up Paddle Classic is a much-anticipated event, based on the success of last year’s inaugural Punta Sayulita Classic. Thousands of spectators packed Sayulita’s beach to watch an elite field of international professional and amateur surfers compete in longboard and stand-up paddle (“SUP”) contests as well as in offshore SUP distance races. This year, the 2nd Annual Punta Sayulita Classic is shaping-up to be one of the premier longboard and SUP events on the 2011 surfing event calendar.

“In addition to the return of last year’s defending champions Chuck Patterson of Dana Point, CA, Ikaika Kawai of Maui, Hawaii, Patricio Gonzalez of Sayulita and Mary Osborne of Ventura, CA, the 2nd Annual Punta Sayulita Classic continues to receive commitments from some of the top international longboard and SUP professionals including Ekolu Kalama, Garrett McNamara, Kai Sallas, Jimmy Gamboa, Darren Eudaly, Sean Poynter, Scott Bass and Julie Cox, reported Kevin Roberts of Punta Sayulita.

Moreover, in a fantastic effort to spread the ‘aloha spirit’ event sponsor Maui Jim Sunglasses is graciously sponsoring an incredible group of top watermen and women from Hawaii to come over to compete in the Punta Sayulita Surf Classic including surfing legend Gerry Lopez, reigning women’s Elite Race champion from the 2010 Battle of the Paddle Hawaii and California events, Candice Appleby, rising stars, Slater Trout, Talia Gangini and Zane Schweitzer, as well as the talented and renown Hawaiian waterman father and son combination of Aaron and Riggs Napoleon.”

Funds raised at the 2nd Annual Punta Sayulita Classic will be donated to the Reef Check and Punta Sayulita Foundations. According to Punta Sayulita Classic honorary Ambassador, James Pribram, of the Eco Warrior Project, “last year’s inaugural Punta Sayulita Classic was a great example of an event that was predicated on the good old vibe in surfing known as the ‘aloha spirit’ and with the fantastic support and generosity of the surfing community and the sponsors who share the love for the ocean, the 2011 Punta Sayulita Classic is expecting to outperform the fundraising from last year which, at the end of the day, is a significant financial contribution to support the important environmental and community programs established by the Reef Check and Punta Sayulita Foundations.
