Arroyo Seco, 25 mins north of La Manzanilla, is hosting its first surfing competition this weekend. We headed up to check out the action and the beach, we had only been to Arroyo Seco once so this was a good excuse for another visit. La Manzanilla is a metropolis compared to Arroyo Seco, the long and expansive beach has one hotel and one restaurant.
There were lots of young surfer dudes on hand and judging from the license plates they came from as far away as California. We arrived at 11:00, the start time was 9:30, but they were just getting going when we got there. From what I could gather a couple of surfers headed out each 20 mins and had 20 mins to catch as many waves as possible. I’ve never been to a surfing competition but it was a very entertaining way to spend the afternoon.
