Alberto Muñoz, Open Men's Champion of CNS kolbi - COPA Fox May 25 2015

Alberto Muñoz, the talented brother of rising international surfer Carlos Muñoz, shall not be underestimated regarding his own talent and style of surfing. Alberto, "Beto", Muñoz won the fifth date of the National Surfing Circuit here in Playa Jacó, Costa Rica this past May 17th.

After winning his semi final heat that had fans screaming from the beach, Beto moved on to win the final against fellow surfers Olman Morales, second, Ariel Gutiérrez, third, and Jason Torres to round out the final four. Making the win even more special was having brother Carlos and Mom Carmen Herrera at the event to support Beto's efforts and share this victory.

The win places Alberto third in the overall current ranking on the National Costa Rican Surfing Circuit (CNS). Congratulations, Beto on this well deserved win and best wishes for continued shredding success!!
