Last week, legendary surfer and yogi Gerry Lopez was back in Punta de Mita to host to a sold-out Standup Paddle (SUP) surfing clinic sponsored by CINCO Watersports Lifestyle Center at Hotel des Artistes.

He’s the legend, the icon, the embodiment of the Aloha spirit of surf. And this is what he has to say about Punta de Mita:

Gerry Lopez, grew up in Honolulu Hawaii where he surfed the reef breaks of the North Shore of Oahu. Gerry soon became recognized as the best tube rider in the world and twice won the Pipeline Masters surf contest, which has since been named The Gerry Lopez Pipeline Masters. Gerry has been in the forefront of Standup Paddle Surfing, and displays the same grace and skill in this new and exciting surf sport. As part of these workshops, Gerry offers personalized surfing tips, leads morning yoga classes, and explores the water lifestyle with discussions including diet, yoga, longevity and Gerry’s own philosophy.

Lopez has recently been introduced to the Punta de Mita area, and this was the second of a series of SUP workshops held here, in conjunction with CINCO. These clinics are the ultimate invitation for those who want to improve their Paddle Surfing alongside one of the greatest surfers of all time.
