Sobre la familia surfista de Cozumel: Nacho es oriundo de Cozumel y ha estado surfeando desde que tená 13 años de edad. Ha participado en competencias alrededor del mundo, incluyendo las Islas Canarias, España, y , por supuesto, en México siendo Puerto Escondido su sitio favorito.

 

Después de más de 20 años de dar instrucciones, ha enseñado a muchas generaciones a surfear. Su conocimiento sobre el deporte y el océano en si es relevante y sumamente diversificado. Ha aparecido en diversos artículos a nivel nacional, en la televisión, entrevistas en radio, revistas, libros de viajes e incluso fue mencionado en la revista Outdoor en una ocasión. En pocas palabras, Nacho literalmente creo la cultura del surf en Cozumel.

 

El hijo de Nacho ha seguido sus pasos en la tabla y ha competido a nivel estatal; en tanto que su mamá Katie esta camino a las competencias nacionales en dos categorías distintas.
