Over 170 surfers participated in the national competition that kicked off the 2017 season this past weekend and we were there to take it all in!
A HUGE Congratulations goes out to Playa Samara local and CRsurftrip instructor, Sean Foerster, for his success in the first competition of the 2017 Circuito Nacional de Surf (National Surf Circuit) which took place in Playa Dominical this past weekend! Sean took first place in juniors (18 and under) and made the men's open finals for the first time in his career, taking 2nd place in the men's open overall, finishing right behind the powerful Jason Torres.
Another noteworthy accomplishment was made by Coral Wiggins who took first place in both the female juniors and women's open, which is not an easy task! Well done, Coral!
