LOS ANGELES, April 15, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Beginning today, shoppers eager to say "¡hola!" to Cabo San Lucas, Mexico can head to Flip Flop Shops® for a chance to win an action-packed luxury yacht vacation for two, complete with professional surfer Bethany Hamilton and Destination: Baja Sur TV host Bill Boyce as their cruise companions. To enter, simply try on a pair of Cobian sandals at any participating Flip Flop Shops locations, then post it to social media under the hashtag #showusyourcobians.

"I'm stoked for the chance to hang out with a fellow flip flop enthusiast, and on a luxury yacht, no less," commented "Soul Surfer" Hamilton, a Cobian ambassador. "The grand prize is a 5-day, 4-night adventure in the waters off Cabo and we'll be surfing, fishing, stand-up paddling, scuba diving, swimming, and of course, lounging in our sandals and soaking up the sun."
Joining the vacation adventure is fellow Cobian ambassador Boyce, a renowned photographer, fisheries biologists and TV personality. Boyce hosts the popular NBC sports show Destination: Baja Sur, which the winner may also be featured on as part of the trip.
The 160-foot yacht the Pacific Provider will serve as the trip host, and is complete with six luxury suites, an inside bar and lounge, outdoor entertainment area and more. The grand prize package also includes airfare for two for a total prize package worth more than $17,000.
