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.

Getting ready for Cosmic 2016

Get ready for the surfing fiesta next June 17th to 19th!

This year will be the last one… Well, that’s what we scream out loud after holding the event for 10 consecutive years as if there was no tomorrow. Post-cosmic hangover normally leaves us no strength to go for a new edition. Specially as  work and family commitments boost up year after year. But there comes this moment when we started getting calls and encouraging comments from brands and people we love, telling us about their stoke with the things we do, and then we try to find just enough energy to go for a new edition.

This year was no different. In 2015 we had already completed a 10 years cycle. We found a good way to say goodbye, feeling proud of what we accomplished: Organize a retro and experimental surf event, that brought together surfer families of up to 3 generations, amateur surfers, retro surf lovers, Pro’s of different nationalities and generations. Creating a great vibe for everyone involved, from the grommet to the oldest surfers of the beach. Proud to pay tribute to the pioneers of surfing that no one had ever devoted a word or trophy for their exploits. Therewith, to unite the past, present and future of the most inspiring characters of the surf culture.

The first thing that comes to mind whenever we start preparing a new edition is always all good, great moments, friends and surfers have been able to gather on the same beach to enjoy this tribute to the surf and waves. Always we remember the countless sessions of surfing on some of the first surfboards ever manufactured in Europe. Memorable parties, rock & roll at the Beachfront, awesome Super 8 movies to the starlight, and endless anecdotes.

On the other hand, we also think of the great effort and endless hours of work that leads to program, lovingly prepared and organized to the last detail our little cosmic dream that was built from scratch 11 years ago. Back in the days, it took a win for people and sponsors to trust and go for it. Today has become a source of inspiration for many other festivals an events.

Despite the good critique, the festival always find great obstacles and roadblocks, seriously discouraging our continuity to this. But facing of adversity and moments of weakness we grow. Especially when in time to give a last goodbye to cosmic, we received a couple of unexpected calls from two premium brands, that gave us back the faith and the desire to return to the fray with more desire and motivation than ever. Brands that love the philosophy of the event and believe they can bring renewed energy and a touch of freshness to it.

Vissla

Our main sponsor is a great brand despite their youth. Vissla is taking the laurels in the industry winning the SIMA AWARDS as best brand of the year in USA. They convey very aligned philosophy with Cosmic Children for two slogans represent perfectly our understanding of the south and the idea of festival:

“Creators & Innovators” representing the creative freedom of custom and innovative shapers.

“Surf ride everything & anything” encouraging surf all types of waves with all kinds of tables.

Mercedes-Benz

Guess we don’t need to present the leader in automotive committed to promote its Class V and Marco Polo Activity in a core event rather than making unrealistic adverts using the image of surfing as a total fake. Mercedes-Benz will be our official vehicle.

We are proud to have these two great brands supporting, and all the rest of sponsors and collaborators.

We would also thank you in advance for coming and join us this year. We hope to keep the stoke and continue to offer a great show. Surfing in its purest form.

Raul, Javi and the rest of the Cosmic Crew!
