FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:
Del Mar Development, Snell Real Estate and SUP Mexico Present the 1st Ever Los
Cabos SUP Classic (Stand-Up Paddle Board Race)
( Los Cabos, Mexico -September 21, 2010) – SUP Mexico, Snell Real Estate and Del Mar Development
would like to announce the first ever Los Cabos Stand-Up Paddle Board Classic at Palmilla
Beach November 4th-7th 2010, benefiting the Cabo Tortuga Foundation. We are very excited to
be bringing an event of this kind to Cabo while working to better educate our community on how
we can protect our sacred ocean and marine life.
More than 40 competitors including several SUP pros will be taking part in the three day race
which will include two turtle releases, hours of beach activities for children and adults, live
entertainment, local restaurants and more.
Stand-up paddle is currently the fastest growing sport in the U.S. and is quickly gaining
momentum in Latin America. With the recent efforts of SUP Mexico, we have seen a jump in
popularity right here in Los Cabos and other parts of Mexico throughout the last year. Our goal is
to introduce this environmentally friendly sport to our community, local youth, avid surfers and
water lovers. Education presented throughout the classic will provide great exposure to the sport
as well as to the importance of the sea turtles and our environment.
For the last ten years, Cabo Tortugas has been entrusted with protecting the sea turtles in Los
Cabos. The foundation currently has 5 protected nests and works closely with local hotels and
authorities to protect the turtles in their natural environment.
SUP Mexico, Snell Real Estate and Del Mar Development invite you to join the fun while
supporting our local community. Please contact Alfredo Salafranca at 624 122 16 98 or Snell Real
Estate to volunteer, participate or sponsor.
