Surf Circuit Switches To Playa Hermosa
The second date of the 2007-08 National Surf Circuit will take place Saturday and Sunday in Playa Hermosa on the Pacific coast, announced José Ureña, president of the Costa Rica Surf Federation (FSC). Called Trofeo Op, the three-star tournament will begin each morning at 7 a.m. in front of Hotel Backyard.
“Hopefully, we are going to have the same number of surfers, or better, in Hermosa that we got in Jacó,” said Ureña, referring to the 180 registered competitors who came to the debut CNS date, the Copa Mango on Dec. 8 and 9.
“The waves in Hermosa this weekend are expected to be a little bit better,” Ureña added.
Sign-ups for the competition take place Friday at Jass Surf Shop in Jacó, from 5 p.m. to 7 p.m. Fees are ¢6,000 ($12) for Open, Women’s Longboard, Bodyboarders and Masters, and ¢5,000 ($10) for Boys, Juniors, Junior Women’s, Grommets, Mini- Grommets and Novices. Additionally, firsttime registrants must pay an annual FSC membership fee of ¢10,000 ($20).
Each winner will receive $100 and a chance to earn the big title – and $1,000 – at the finals in April.
