The best surfers in Costa Rica gather today and tomorrow (May 26 and 27) at Playa Bejuco in Parrita for the fifth date of the Kolbi Surf Tournament: Copa Los 40 (The 40’s Cup).
The last time the tournament had a stop at Bejuco Beach was back in 2016, an event that saw Anthony Fillingim and Emily Gussoni take the first place positions.
The organization of the event confirmed it has received one of the highest registrations so far this year, a result of the amazing waves offered by this surf break in the Central Pacific and the closeness to Jaco Beach (25 minutes), beach town that hosts one of the biggest surfing communities in the country. Unfortunately, though, some important figures will not be taking part in this date due to their participation in the Word Surf League events.
So far, Jordan Hernandez from Limon, has managed to maintain the first place of the tournament by taking the first place in two of the four stops. Figures such as Malakai Martinez and Andre Chacon will also be present.
In the female category, Rubiana Brownwell who took first place in the fourth date in Santa Teresa, Coral Wiggins, Zulay Martinez and Lisbeth Vindas will be battling for the first position in the ranking.
Action begins at 7 a.m. and concludes at 5 p.m. today, while on Sunday the competition kicks off at 7 a.m. and it’s expected to close by 3 p.m.
In addition to great surfing the Kolbi National Surf Tournament will offer live music, balance board, playlist in video, beautiful models, games and products by sponsors.
