SURFERS FROM 4 CONTINENTS AND LOADS OF ROCK&ROLL

 

¡Gracias a todos los que vinisteis al Cosmic! Amantes del single fin y de lo retro, Familias del surf, profesionales, shapers, pioneros y leyendas vivas del panorama surfero internacional, body-surfers, sirenitas, músicos, artistas, fotógrafos, activistas ambientales, personajes estrambóticos, travestis, zombies, avatares, mariachis y sobre todo grandes aficionados al surf en estado puro, de todos los rincones del planeta. A todos, gracias por el mejor arranque del verano y esos grandes momentos pre-solsticio.

El nuevo formato y la integración del Shred Your Shape by Vissla” creemos que ha sido un éxito y estamos muy contentos.

Ha sido un auténtico lujo haber logrado tener surfistas referentes  y grandes pesos pesados de la industria del surf, procedentes de Australia, Estados Unidos (Costa este y oeste), Sudáfrica, Brasil, Inglaterra, Alemania, Irlanda, Italia, Francia, Portugal y por supuesto todas las comunidades autónomas costeras incluidas varias islas de Canarias.

Así que a pesar de la lluvia que acompañó durante la primera mitad del festival, en general estamos muy contentos y queremos daros las gracias una vez mas por acompañarnos.

WAVES AND ROCK&ROLL IN PLAYA DE LIENCRES

 

Tras la toma de contacto santanderina, el festival comenzó el sábado bajo intensa lluvia y con vientos frios del oeste. Pero la belleza del Parque Natural de Liencres en el municipio de Piélagos y el ambiente que se siempre se crea en su playa durante el evento, consiguió contagiar el espíritu festivo a todos los asistentes, y aunque algo más tarde de lo previsto, se celebraron las sesiones de surf con tablas antiguas de una sola quilla y más de 40 años de antigüedad (single fins), y con otras de dos quillas (twinfins) y originarias de los años 70 y 80.

Los surfistas profesionales de diferentes épocas tuvieron sus momentos de gloria mientras se jugaban como trofeo un viaje a bordo del magnífico yate King Millenium por las islas Mentawai, para ir en busca de las olas perfectas del suroeste de Sumatra, Indonesia, el ganador fue el tinerfeño Alex Bauduin. Y en la categoría amateur compitieron por una estancia de 10 días cortesía del Mango Surf House en las islas Maldivas, también en el Océano Indico, cuyo premio recayó en el donostiarra y ex campeón de España Asier Ibañez. Así mismo, los mejores grommets (niños surfistas), Jules Langlois de Francia, y León Agurruza de Fuerteventura, se llevaron una tabla de surf Styling  hecha a medida y un traje de surf Vissla como trofeos por ganar sus respectivas mangas.

La esperadísima fiesta nocturna se celebró con un reparto musical de auténtico lujo en el restaurante-bar de la playa de Canallave Al Otro Lado. Después de una multitudinaria y sabrosísima cena, abriendo la fiesta y recién llegado de Lisboa para la ocasión comenzó un impresionante concierto Frankie Chavez, un rockero y surfista actualmente de gira por Europa, que acompañado tan solo de un batería y un amplio repertorio de guitarras hizo las delicias del respetable, hasta la toma de relevo de la banda de rock psicodélico cántabra Los Estanques, que brillaron como nunca y demostraron su talento. La fiesta de repente se convirtió en fiestón cuando The Limboos, otro de los grandes grupos nacionales del momento, subieron al escenario y lo inundaron con su rock “tropical” de los 50 provocando congas y bailes exóticos por doquier. Del cierre de fiesta se encargó magistralmente el DJ y surfista zarautarra Mario Azurza, El Ciruelo, un gran personaje que puso el punto y final antes del que saliese el sol.
