UPDATE: Check out our latest guide to the event with schedules and all the information here ( Whether anyone has known before that surf in Cabo is quite popular, they will certainly become aware now that Baja California Sur Secretary of Tourism, Ruben Lugo Reachi, recently announced that Los Cabos will host the next 2013 World Surfing Tournament. This June 17-23, San Jose del Cabo will be where members of the World Tournament Association of Surfing Professionals (ASP) plan on hitting the waves at Costa Azul, featuring the participation of surfers from around the world. Contestants will all be vying for chunks of the $155,000 (US) dollar purse. In January, similar competitions, with an equal amount of money awarded to winners and top three finishers, were held in Hawaii, and China. In February, the tournaments have been contested in Puerto Rico and Australia and they continue in March at such exotic places like Argentina and Japan. ''These are the highest level of surf competitions that award points to competitors, which qualify them to the world championships.
