CRSURF NEWS for April 2007

Professional surfing in Costa Rica has reached a new level of success in March as Frederico Pilurzo made it to the finals of the $25000 Vans Pier Classic, a WQS event held in Huntington Beach, California that featured the best surfers in the world. Pilurzo earned second place, with Micah Byrne winning the event, and Eric Geiselman and Michael Hoisington coming in third and fourth place, respectively. This is the highest result of a Costa Rican surfer in a WQS event, and currently Frederico is 198th in the world on this year’s standings.

The second edition of the Central American Championship of Surf takes place from March 30th to April 1st at Playa Los Pinos in Guatemala. Teams from the host country Panama, Nicaragua, El Salvador and Costa Rica will be competing for bragging rights at $4600 in prizes.

For the April travelers, be prepared for the Semana Santa crowds. During the week of Easter, many thousands of Ticos travel out to the beach for their vacation. There will be lots of ‘bailes’ (dances) and guaro (a local liquor made from sugar cane) so you may have to travel a little farther to find a quiet beach. What is nice is that after April 15th the crowds disperse as quickly as they come, and as the high season ends so do the higher prices.
