National Surf Circuit Moves to Tamarindo

February 1, 2008
Copa Witch’s Rock, the third competition of this season’s National Surf Circuit, will take place this weekend in Tamarindo, on the northern Pacific coast.
Expected to take the waves this weekend is Costa Rica’s most recognized international surf ambassador and Tamarindo hometown guy Federico Pilurzu. The 23-year-old surfer was recently named one of the country’s most outstanding athletes by the Costa Rican Sports and Recreation Institute (ICODER).
Also returning to familiar waters is national women’s surf champion Nataly Bernold, 14, who recently moved her home base from Tamarindo to Jacó, on the central Pacific coast.
Good conditions are expected for the event, with a swell of three to five feet and sets of 14 seconds, according to the surf report Web site www.wetsand.com.
Inscriptions for the event take place today from 5 to 7 p.m. at Witch’s Rock Surf Camp in Tamarindo. Surfing will take place Saturday and Sunday at the Tamarindo river mouth, starting at 7 a.m. each day.
