With the intention of generating healthy and educational events, as well as promoting the unity of the community and women who practice the sport of surfing, women from Ensenada will hold the “Sirenas al Agua Surf Festival”. This is the first female surfing tournament, which will take place on April 15th and 16th at Playa San Miguel, with a prize pool of 30,000 pesos and a registration fee of 500 pesos. Yolanda Sierra, a member of the group “Nosotras y el Mar”, indicated that the female event will begin with an icebreaker on the evening of April 14th at the craft beer establishment called “Magnánima”. “As Ensenada surfers, we believe it is necessary to hold healthy and educational events to promote the unity and community of women in surfing,” she said.
She pointed out that in addition to promoting healthy competition, the basic rules of the sport will be disseminated, among other factors, so that it can be practiced safely. They also seek to encourage healthy competition in the younger generations and promote surfing as a professional sport, creating healthy habits through responsible and friendly events between humans and the environment. Additionally, this tournament seeks to generate an economic benefit for the community due to the people who could come from other cities or the neighboring state of California.
Finally, it was reported that on April 14th, during the icebreaker, registration will take place, and a competition kit will be provided to the competitors. Informative talks will also be offered, and films related to this exciting activity will be screened. The tournament will take place on April 15th and 16th, and at the same time, there will be yoga, skateboarding, music, a bazaar, and a camping area.
