Cabuya Surf Club, in its ongoing effort to keep area youth involved in competitive surfing, has announced that Mikol Salazar and Steven Serrano will be sponsored for the upcoming national surf contest series. In addition, the Playa Los Cedros Junior Surf Contest was a huge success this year. Conditions were ideal for the two-day tournament with overhead surf, a huge crowd and sunny skies. The contest is a community-based effort that would not be possible without support from area businesses. Many thanks to Hotel Luna Llena, Century 21 Beach Area Properties, Amor de Mar Hotel, Zoom magazine, Ylang Ylang Resort, Armonía Eco Village and Montezuma Surf School and Surf Safari, which donates 10 percent of all proceeds to benefit junior surfing.
