Final contest of the Costa Rican national circuit, Playa Hermosa

This weekend was the final contest of the Costa Rican National circuit in Playa Hermosa. We had awesome waves for the finals on Sunday, with a bit more swell pushing through and an amazing show of surfing put on by all the competitors. The weekend was a complete success and so many people showed up to watch and support the contest, it was amazing, I have never seen that many people on the beach! I was super stoked to get third place in the contest, and I am now ranked number 4 in Costa Rica. I want to thank my sponsors Calavera Swimwear and A3 Energy Drink for all of the support this year, I couldn’t have done it without you! Also a big thank you to everyone who came to support this weekend, you guys all made the event the big success that it was. A huge congratulations to Nataly Bernold, our number 1 female :-), and to Gilbert Brown who won the Open after a final of the most incredible surfing against Anthony Fillingham, Anthony Segura and Noe Mar McGonagle.

I am ready now more than ever to train hard and really push my surfing to the next level for this coming year. I have learnt so much this year through competing in the Costa Rican circuit, and training with my coach Geancarlo. The next few months are important for me to get organised with a decent training programme in preparation for next year and to get together my portfolio to help find sponsorship to help me get to bigger events in competition surfing! I’m super excited and ready to give it my all, best and more!
