A year ago our dream came true. Those who were from July 31st to August 8th, 2009 in Playa Hermosa, Jaco understand specially if they are real surfers.
The history of surfing in Costa Rica was marked by a before and an after, following a competition such as the Billabong ISA Wolrd Surfing Games, hosted in Playa Hermosa, which reunited 35 countries with their respective surfing national teams showing the best surf Costa Rica has ever seen.
Added to that, the Costa Rica national team performed excellently, finishing seventh in the 35 participating countries. It has been almost a year and the results achieved in such a competition are still showing.
Jose Ureña, president of the Costa Rica surfing federation and coach of the Costa Rica surfing national team; Diego Naranjo, one of the participates in the event plus one of the more experienced surfers in Costa Rica, talked to us about what is still being collected after the Costa Rica Billabong ISA Wolrd Surfing Games.
