Los Cabos, Mexico (February 2018) – One&Only Palmilla, the ultra-luxury resort situated in Los Cabos on the edge of the stunning Baja Peninsula in Mexico, has partnered with TropicSurf for two exclusive surfing weekends led by renowned professional surfers. Guests will have the unforgettable opportunity to take surf lessons with World Championship winner CJ Hobgood from March 8 to 12, and rising professional Tatiana Weston-Webb from June 17 to 21, as part of the ‘Art of Luxury Surfing’ programme with TropicSurf at One&Only Palmilla.
Guests of all surfing abilities, from novice riders seeking first-time lessons to advanced surfers looking to perfect their style, will have the opportunity to meet, hang out, and hit the waves with the professionals. This one-of-a-kind surfing experience takes place at one of the most beautiful and popular surfing destinations in the world. Los Cabos has year-round warm waters and several diverse point breaks, and with One&Only Palmilla having one of the only swimmable beaches in the region, it is the perfect place to discover this exhilarating experience.
From March 8 to 12, CJ Hobgood hits the shores of Los Cabos. A fan favorite who has enjoyed a long and illustrious career, CJ competed in the World Surf League tour from 1999 to 2015, and won the world title in 2001. CJ earned a reputation for being unstoppable in big left hand reef breaks and he is synonymous with dramatic wave-running in some of the most extreme surf locations around the world. Following his retirement in 2015, CJ joined the Salty Crew brand, connecting fashion and with his ocean-life.
Later in the year, One&Only Palmilla will welcome up-and-coming pro-surfer Tatiana Weston-Webb from June 17 to 21. Topping the women’s list at number one on SURFER Magazine’s Hot 100 Young Surfers in 2016, Brazilian-born Tatiana has quickly made a name for herself in the surfing world. She has competed and placed in the Vans US Open, as well as the WSL Championship Tour.
