HUNTINGTON BEACH, California - The first-ever Quiksilver Pro Puerto Escondido comes to Playa Zicatela’s famous “Mexican Pipeline” this August. The event is an ASP World Qualifying Series (WQS) 3-Star contest and is the first ASP event ever to be held during Puerto Escondido’s peak swell period. The event will run from August 12-19 and will be webed live at Quiksilver.com.

To accommodate the anticipated large surf, organizers have scheduled an eight day holding period window for the contest as opposed to the usual three days. Surf heights could reach above 20 feet. With waves this huge, expect a full-on assault by the best big wave local chargers and international talent where one thing can be for certain the contest is going to be big.

Quiksilver Latin American team-riders Cristobol de Col, Gabriel Villaran, Martinez and Ramon Navarro are set to compete along with Quiksilver Young Guns Clay Marzo and Tyler Newton out of Hawaii and Quiksilver in Memory of Eddie Aikau Invitee Mark Healey. Newton will be gunning for a pro win and a piece of the $50,000 cash prize purse up for grabs. The young rippers will be joined by legendary Northern California Mavericks charger Peter Mel who is signed up to compete as well as co-host the contest’s web.
