Magnum Martinez at Witchs Rock Costa Rica Feb 12

Word is that Magnum Martinez will be at the Witchs Rock Surf Camp on Friday the 13th!  I do not think Costa Ricans have any delusions about the day Friday the 13th but I sure hope all goes well for them.

It seems Joe Walsh is promoting the Magnum Martinez autograph session during a boozefest of Happy Hour specials from 5-9pm. For those of you who do not know about him, Magnum was born in Caracas Venezuela but according to Quiksilver he now hails out of Carlsbad, CA. His bio on the site reads “Magnum is a soulful, spiritual surfer from Venezuela who is an Alas Tour champ known for his powerful style. He’s well traveled and his intelligent, easy-going nature has made him a ton of friends around the world” Happy Hour at WRSC doesn’t sound like the ideal environment for autograph signing for this spiritual warrior.

Plus, I don’t think any host here will disrespect him by presenting him for autographs during a chemical intoxication session for this great athlete and surfer. In addition, this past weekends CNS Nosara Surf Contest winner Jairo Perez who is another spiritual warrior and a major up and coming star in the Latin surf world will be in attendance with Magnum Martinez according to the flyer posted on Joe Walshs’ blog.

Jairo Perez beats Jason Torres in Nosara, Costa Rica Feb 10

jairo-perez-costa-rican-surfer-by-fabian-sanchez1Big news this weekend out of Playa Guiones in Nosara, Costa Rica where the fourth leg of the CNS or Circuito Nacional de Surf for national championship was held. Jairo Perez beat Jason Torres who is the leader of the 2008-2009 DayStar’s CNS Tournament. Jason and Jairo both Jaco natives have known each other all of their lives, and have seen each other grow in their surfing skills. 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. more…
