The event

They're already calling the Mexpipe Challenge Surf Carnival "The Woodstock of Mexico." It will be bringing Thousands & thousands of bare footed, Sunglass wearing, scantily clothed beach goers to put their feet in the warm waters of Mexico's Pacific Ocean & the white sand between their toes of Puerto Escondido's pristine beaches & Coves of this once sleepy little fishing town.

From February 16 to 20, 2007, the area will once again witness the most important surf competition on Mexican soil. Taking place at beautiful Zicatela beach, Puerto Escondido, Oaxaca, for the 7th consecutive year, National and international competitors will reunite. On this occasion, two disciplines which are by far the two fastest growing water sports in Mexico will be featured: surfing in the women's and men's categories.

These events are sanctioned by the (A.S.P) professional surfing association the (F.M.S) Mexican surf federation and the (A.S.E.O.) thef Oaxacan surf association. In addition to the surfing we will be living a beach atmosphere and celebrating carnival in which the public will enjoy carnival parades, spectacles, beach activities, fashion shows and concerts. The mexpipe challenge: the avant-garde of beach events, offers and invites on this occasion, the youth to participate in the carnival, which will be held parallel to the surf event.

The Mexpipe Challenge surf event will reunite surfers from more than 17 countries to compete in the women's and men's categories for their respective purses. The champions of each category will also compete in a man-on-man final for special prizes from many sponsors this year, making it an even larger extravaganza event, "Woodstock"! you're fairly warned.

This year the event transcends to a sanctioned international status by the A.S.P.(professional surfing association) and is a one star event on the W.Q.S. (world qualifying series) tour which puts it on the official calendar. It is also sanctioned by the F.M.S (mexican surf federation) and the A.S.E.O (oaxacan surf association).
