Bahia Todos Santos, Mexico, Approved as World Surfing Reserve
Reserve surf zone to include iconic breaks at San Miguel, Isla Todos Santos and Salsipuedes
January 23, 2013 – World Surfing Reserves and Save The Waves Coalition are excited to announce that Bahia Todos Santos, Baja California, Mexico, has been formally approved as a World Surfing Reserve. The Bahia Todos Santos Reserve, or Todos Santos Bay, will be a surf zone that extends from the surf break Stacks just south of San Miguel, to Isla Todos Santos to the west (including the famous big-wave break Killers), and to Salsipuedes to the north.
Bahia Todos Santos becomes the sixth site to receive World Surfing Reserve status, and the second in Latin America, following the recent approval of Huanchaco, Peru. Several local organizations were involved with its application for World Surfing Reserve status, including Ensenada-based SURF-ENS, Mexican NGO Pronatura and environmental nonprofit WiLDCOAST, and will be involved with the implementation and ongoing management of the Reserve.
