Puerto Escondido was host to a successful third edition of the Bodyboard Colorada Pro tournament, which concluded on Sunday with the participation of 140 bodyboarders from at least 10 countries.

The surfers’ feats in several categories were witnessed by hundreds of national and foreign tourists who gathered on the shores of Playa Punta Colorada, a beach threatened by real estate development and lagging environmental regulations, and protected by the bodyboarder community itself, among other activist groups.

The Open Pro category, the top billing event, was won by Samy Morrentino from Hawaii, who was crowned the overall winner of the Colorada Pro tournament by obtaining a score of 18.67 and 120,000 pesos (about US $7,100) in prize money.
