The King of the Boom Contest

Every year Hotel Chancletas puts on a contest for the local surfers in the area. It’s an awesome chance for the locals to showcase their skills, get the spot to themselves for 20 minutes at a time, and fight for the right to claim themselves as El Rey del Boom. 

Isaac Rodriguez had been the undefeated champ for three years in a row, but this year Elton Sanchez claimed the crown with a sick backside tube in the final. The sand has been a little funky this year, but after a few big swells to start out the new season, it’s finally coming around. The contest day had strong offshore winds until 3pm and overhead waves.
