Tamarindo Talk

November 13, 2009

Local Tamarindo surfer and former national surf champion Isaac Vega is surfing with the Costa Rica National Surf team at the IX PanAmerican Surf Games in Brazil, thanks to the support of a group of Tamarindo sponsors, as well as his own sponsor, Quiksilver. The event began last Saturday and will continue through Sunday, Nov. 15. The funds were used to pay for Vegas’ airfare to Brazil.

Tamarindo Diria’s Judd Stensrud, whose hotel became the first Gold Sponsor –contributing $200 or more – raised the funds from Blue Trailz/Surftech (Gold), Ted Alexander (Gold), Surfrider Foundation Tamarindo (Silver – $100 or more), Remax Ocean Surf Realty (Silver), Horizones Pacific (Silver), Gabriela Valenzuela and Gerry Hirsch (Silver), Xyanna Bateau (Silver) and Valenzuela Architectos (Silver).

The Great Waltini’s Restaurant in Playa Grande has reopened for the high season. It still offers a free boat taxi ride from  Tamarindo for the dinner service if you call for reservations before 2 p.m. the day of your dinner. The number is 2653-0975. Also back in business for the high season is Noguis.

An equestrian contest for kids will begin at 9 a.m. tomorrow (Saturday, Nov. 14) at Casagua Ranch. Competition will include horsemanship, walk-trot, demonstration jumping, trail/obstacle course, and more. Judges will be Jeanne Cordes and Ellen Duggan. Co-sponsors are Casagua Horses and FlamingoEquestrianCenter. For more information, call Amanda at 8819-3610 or Kay at 2653-8041.
