Surfistas muestran lado humano de México (Mahatma Millán)

Surfers in Mexico and the United States have taken part in ceremonies to pay respects to two Australians who went missing in Mexico last month.

Adam Coleman and Dean Lucas were on a surfing trip in Mexico when it is believed they were attacked by gangsters, shot, and their van set alight on a rural road in an area of Sinaloa that is home to a powerful drug cartel.

"We wanted to organise something to show the families and friends in Australia the shame, sympathy, the love and the respect," Mexico Surfing Federation president Luis Skeen said.

Organizers from the Mexican Surfing Federation said thousands of people had turned out at events throughout Mexico and the US.

Mr Skeen was joined by about 50 other surfers and 100 wellwishers under sunny skies at El Camaron beach in Mazatlan, where they built a tribute of flowers and photos and read a statement from the family.

He said relatives of the two men had travelled to Mexico and were holding a private ceremony at a beach near Puerto Vallarta.

Pictures have been shared on Facebook of the paddle out at Mazatalan.
