Jairo Perez beat Jason Torres who is the leader of the 2008-2009 DayStar’s CNS Tournament.

The powerful showing of Jairo whose determination proved he has what is takes to be national champion surprised fans and sponsors too.

While Jason Torres is still favored to win the entire circuit and become the next Costa Rican surf champion, he must have felt chilled seeing his Jaco buddy steal the show in the 5 foot plus waves in Nosara, Costa Rica. Many surf vacation hotels, Costa Rica surf camps located in Nosara were filled this past weekend as fans flocked from all over Costa Rica and other countries to see this contest which is proving to be a real climatic event.

This year not only is the championship at stake but the Billabong World Surfing Games conducted by the ISA or International Surfing Association will take place in Playa Hermosa, Costa Rica for the first time in history. So every surfer is not only determined to win the national title but also to earn the right and honor of surfing in front of their families and friends in Costa Rica’s first major international surfing event this August. With surfers like Jairo Perez who outshined some of his mentors like Diego Naranjo and Luis Vindas, there is a lot of hungry surfers and determined athletes who want to share in the limelight this August at the 2009 International Surfing Association (ISA) Billabong World Surfing Games Costa Rica 2009 in Hermosa.

In the woman’s category, Nataly Bernold also out of Jaco, Costa Rica won again. She beat her mentor and six time Costa Rican surf champion Lisbeth Vindas. This is Nataly’s third consecutive win which puts a lot of pressure on Lisbeth to make a strong showing in the final two legs of the CNS contest.
