Duely noted, the the Puerto Vallarta Board of Tourism sponsors and supports the professional surfer during the World Cup circuit in Hawaii and California. The young athlete proudly represents Puerto Vallarta and our country in a series of international tournaments attended solely by the best in world rankings.
