Rosarito Beach Welcomes The WQS Surf Contest In April

Rosarito Beach Pro added to WQS schedule

Surfersvillage Global Surf News, 18 February, 2009 : - - The City of Rosarito Beach, Baja California and FDt Marketing  are proud to announce they have reached a formal agreement for a new WQS event to be held April 3rd- 5th, 2009 in Rosarito, at the Rosarito Pier. 

The event, which has been in development for nearly 4 months, will be a Men's WQS 1-STAR event, and be held just after the Vans Pier Classic in Huntington Beach. 

"We are very excited to have all the competitors here in our beautiful beaches and look forward to the event in April. Rosarito has always been recognized as a very attractive spot for surfers and this event will bring many positive things to our city." Laura Wong president of the Rosarito Beach Convention and Visitors Bureau.

FDt Marketing, the management company behind the Rosarito Beach Pro, feels they are bringing this contest to Rosarito at the perfect time of year, seeing huge potential for this year and beyond. 

"We wanted to give this surf contest a different feel, a different atmosphere if you will. Come April 3rd Rosarito will still be in Spring Break mode, so we wanted to surround the contest with a young, beach minded, college party atmosphere. We felt that with the spring breakers still in town it would help draw a large crowd during the contest, plus we are planning a concert on the Saturday night April 4th." 

Jeff Stoner, President of FDt Marketing:  The event will be webcasted with live scoring on Saturday and Sunday, April 4th and 5th, and can be seen on rosarito.org/surf  or by clicking on the Rosarito event logo on the ASP website.  For more information on the event, travel arrangements, or the City of Rosarito, please visit the Rosarito website rosarito.org
