ROCA LOCA, Puntarenas -- With an unusually light schedule for this year’s Latin Pro, the Association of Latin American Professional Surfers (ALAS) was fortunate that Diego Naranjo stepped in to secure two Costa Rica stops on the association's competitive circuit.
"I'm very proud to be one of the first surfers in Jacó. I am seeing the results of everything I've worked for. It's not something I deserve; it's something I've earned. I worked for it, and I'm still here working hard and still have a lot of passion."
Jason Torres claimed his first national surf championship after 10 years competing on the Costa Rican national surf circuit. Meanwhile, Lisbeth Vindas continued to make history with her 12th national women’s championship title.
