Competition

Created in 1990, Popoti the Surf Club is at the origin of several events for the development of local surfing, including OPT horue, one of the most important local surfing competitions and certainly one of the most awaited and most appreciated. It brings together more than eighty surfers local and international. The OPT horue became a rendezvous annual surfing festival. This is also the key to its success : faire de cette competition un moment de plaisir et d’échanges culturels, with the organization of various events : fashion, surf night session, concerts … This competition has helped many local surfers to compete with foreign surfers and make themselves known. In June 2002, as every year, the beautiful black sand beach Papara has hosted this first surfing competition of the season, the twelfth edition of the Opt horue.
