Don’t miss the details of this surf competition! For the first time, a Dominican surf team takes four participants to the final of an international event.
Dominican Surfing Team sweeping in Puerto Rico and qualifies to attend the 2014 Volcom Catfish Surf Series World Championship to be held in Newport Beach, California, USA, May 9-12.
On Sunday, March 2, one of the competitions of the Volcom Catfish Surf Series 2014 was held at Domes Beach, Puerto Rico. A circuit designed to select the best surfers in the world, inviting the winners to a grand finale in California, USA, where the best of the world’s surfing meet as well as the international press and multinationals in search of talent.
With the purpose of bringing the best surfers of the country, the Triple Crown Circuit was held in the Dominican Republic. Three competitions were organized in three different beaches of the north coast: La Puntilla in Puerto Plata, Playa Cosón in Las Terrenas, and concluding with the grand finale in Playa Encuentro, Cabarete. The circuit was successfully organized by CNU (Costa Norte Underground) represented by Brandon Sanford, a well-loved surfer from Cabarete and part of the Volcom Latin America team.
The final price would be to win the trip to the Puerto Rico Catfish for the 3 winners of the three categories. All this was possible thanks to the private sector and the community of Puerto Plata, Las Terrenas, and Cabarete. For next year we have the support of the Minister of Sports represented by Jaime David Fernandez Mirabal, Marcos Diaz, and the private sector.
Now the next goal is to take the two qualified athletes to the Volcom Catfish Surf Series World Championship to be held in Newport Beach, California, May 9-12, 2014.
