Costa Rican Surfer Girls Rip up Waves in Playa Cocles, El Caribe! January 29 2014

This past weekend, Costa Rican surfer girls headed to compete at the second date, segunda fecha, of the Circuito Nacional Olympus 2014. The event took place at Playa Cocles, 2 km south of Puerto Viejo in the Caribe.

The weekend was full of spectacular wave riding by all and fans were not disappointed. The guys had plenty of fun as well, particularly in the aerial show on the final day.  The vibe was pura vida all the way through!

Thank you all competitors for bringing your best and thank you to all sponsors for hosting an enjoyable torneo!.
