Vissla Cosmic Hermosa 2016
Vissla is pleased to announce the 2nd Annual Cosmic Hermosa surf festival!
Sign up here and at Mango Surf Shops
The Cosmic Hermosa is a retro-style surf experience paying homage to an earlier era on July 2nd at Playa Hermosa, Costa Rica. Come enjoy a journey back to the alternative, more experimental time of the 1970’s. A place where surfboards ruled the shops, when shapers were gurus, and surfing had a mystical soul about it.
The event will feature three divisions including Locals, Creators & Innovators, and Pros. Some of the Pros competing this year are Tomas King, Federico Pilurzu, Anthony Fillingim, Alberto Muñoz, Jason Torres, Angelo Bonomelli, and Luis Vindas. The Pros and local entrants will meet at the waters edge with the Beach Marshal and “draw cards” prior to their heat for priority on the board selection. It truly comes down to the luck of the draw as to which board you will surf in your heat as Vissla will supply original 70’s and 80’s Single and Twin fin options for competitors to choose from. The Creators and Innovators division consists of local shapers, including Mark Wooster, Nicolas Fischer, Luis Vindas, and Jefferson Tascon. While the local entrants and Pros will ride original craft, the Creators & Innovators will ride a craft they shaped themselves inspired by the 70’s and 80’s time period.
