Surf: 8th Annual Dominical Semana Santa Classic

semana santa surf dominical clasica classic

Once you have crossed the bridge of the Barú River, you have arrived at Dominical, a small coastal city where three regions are coming together: the Central Pacific, Pérez Zeledón and the South Pacific. Every Easter weekend it surprises with the best waves, and this year’s Semana Santa Classic will not disappoint. Last year´s contest raised a bunch of money to help the Costa Ballena Lifeguards out (covering the guards in Playa Dominical, Playa Hermosa and Playa Ventanas). We had a lot of fun doing it. I talked with Justin Hague who has been the lead organizer of the event, and he said the contest would not be possible without the generous support of the community. 

In past years, businesses like Mavi Surf Hotel, Tortilla Flats, Pineapple Tours, Maracatu, Costa Rica Dive and Surf, El Tubo Surf, CR Surf School, Domilocos Transport,, have all contributed. Ballena Tales collaborates with the promotion and Banana Print has donated flyers and banners. Fuego Brewing hosts the awards ceremony on Saturday, April 20th. And Broke-n-Bored always serves up the kindest dishes throughout the weekend.
