Lisbeth Vindas and Leilani McGonagle, representing the women for the Open Women category at the ISA Mundial in Peru, on the Costa Rica National Team, both won their first round heats today. Congratulations!

Costa Rica is proud of their success, way to represent CR ladies!! Hard charging, great surfing helped put both Lisbeth and Leilani at the front of their heats. Lisbeth scored an 8 point wave seconds before the buzzer. We look forward to the next round.

Congratulation also to Anthony Fillingim of CR, who just won his round 3 heat today! 

The National team has established an excellent start to this year's Mundial :)
