© 2016 Robert OToole | The surfing tournament was held at Todos Santos Island at a surf spot called Killers that breaks off the rocky northern tip of the island, 11 miles off Ensenada BC Mexico. This might seem like a strange place to hold a public sporting event but this surf spot is very well known to surfers all over the planet and is known as one of the birthplaces of big wave surfing on the west coast.
