Daniel Alvarez took 1st place, longboard category, competing in the Copa Marley National Circuit at Cocles Beach, Costa Rica.
This is a heavy beach break and the conditions were not easy with strong currents and open and closed barrels. It was very exciting to see all of the competitors killing it during the heats, gnarly conditions for everyone.
The longboard final was held on the left side of the beach. It was super intense between the competitors and Daniel and another Longboarder Dorian were neck to neck. Daniel was the only competitor that was able to do a noseride in these conditions. (the wave was not longboard friendly) Daniels leash broke causing his longboard to crash on the rocks when the set came, so yeah, totally broke his longboard in half. Dorian in 2nd place helped Daniel get out of the waters risking his heat. This final was awesome !!!
The competition was held on the Caribbean side of Costa Rica, Rasta Vibes. Great vibes, great food, great people! Really loved the energy!
