Super Bueno : MexiLogFest 2021
Posted on June 23, 2021
There's hardly anything not to like about MexiLogFest. Yes, it's a surf competition. But it is so much more than that. It's really a celebration of community, place and people. The competition is fierce but it is mostly an excuse to gather, meet new people, celebrate Mexico and have a good time. The competitors cheer each other on, help each other in the water and certainly hang out together by night. And, believe us, you do not need to be a surfer or even know which side of a surf board to stand on to have fun at this event.
We just got back from our annual pilgrimage to this year's event in Punta Del Burro, Nayarit and we are counting the days until the next one. We had a fine crew of Howler Ambassadors (Nate Floyd, Kai Welch and Nacho Pignataro) and friends like photog Jonathan Nimerfroh staying with us at Howler House. We spent our days soaking in the comp or sneaking off to surf nearby breaks and our nights drinking margies, putting on beach asados (thanks to our amazing contingent of friends from Uruguay) and hanging at MexiLogfest events with people from 30+ countries.
Our hats off to those who surfed for Team Howler - Nate Floyd, Israel Preciado and Nacho Pignataro. We're proud to know you boys. Congratulations Nacho on your 4th place finish. That's quite an accomplishment! And, our biggest thank you and congratulations to Howler Ambassador Israel Preciado, the godfather and creator of MexiLogFest, for putting on another wonderful event despite the many challenges of COVID and the weather. We are honored to be a part of it!
Here's some of our photos to prove all of this is true...
