Upsets reign at Costa Ricas i20 surf championship in Esterillos

first_imgESTERILLOS OESTE, Puntarenas – David Herrera almost didn’t make it on time to a tournament he ended up winning. The first-place finisher of the inaugural i20 Surf Championship in Esterillos Oeste said Saturday after his victory that he was close to being too late to confirm his registration for the event by Friday’s deadline.“I was going crazy, I didn’t think I was going to make it on time and that I was going to be eliminated,” he said. “I had to ask my friend Marco if I could borrow his car.”On his way, Herrera called Carlos Brenes, the event organizer for the Costa Rican Surf Federation, and told him not to close the registration without him. When he finally got to Esterillos Oeste from his hometown of Quepos, about 50 km down Costa Rica’s Pacific coast, on Friday night, the waves coming into the beach looked to be alarmingly small. But on Saturday, the swell picked up and allowed the surfer to pull an upset victory over some of the sport’s big names nationally like Latin American champion Anthony Fillingim and current national champ Jason Torres.“I asked God to let me have fun and bring out some good waves, and I’ll take care of the rest,” Herrera said.
