Daniel Alvarez takes 2nd place in Copa Surfing Republica

Daniel takes 2nd place "Longboard category" in the Copa Surfing Republica

Congrats to Daniel for 2nd place "Longboard category" in the Copa Surfing Republica at Nosara. The final had onshore conditions, it was great to see classic longboard surfing! The competition was held at Playa Guiones, great peaks, and really good waves for longboarding. Daniel is still in the 1st lead of the Longboard Surf ranking of Costa Rica

Nosara is a nice town, we stayed just 8 min from where the competition was held at an airbnb called Refugio del Sol in Pelicano beach. Refugio del Sol was a very nice airbnb and the owners that greeted us were very welcoming.  If you want to stay very close to Playa Guiones I believe its more pricy, if you don't have a car its best you stay around this area. The weather in Nosara was insanely hot, Nosara is also very dusty, however, that didn't seem to bother me, but if a person suffers from allergies it might be uncomfortable. 

Playa Guiones, waves and conditions described for the weekend contest.  Very good for longboarding, for me this is a longboard scenario! It had its time where there were very strong offshore winds and that's the time you do not want to surf it, especially if you are on a longboard. You have to check the forecast and notice the wind direction level (this is great advice) 

We had breakfast and lunch at Soda Tica, this Soda was walking distance from Playa Guiones. The service was good, there's always a lot of people because it's so good, so you need to be patient when you order here. Very good quantity, price and the restaurant decoration were pretty and simple.
