Cosmic Session El Palmar – 27 diciembre

Cosmic Session El Palmar – 27 diciembre

blog @en

Surf clásico y experimental con una buena Cosmic Session en El Palmar (Cádiz) el martes 27 de diciembre.

 

Hace tan sólo unos días, en un momento de calentón, hemos decidido despedir el año como se merece, con una sesión de surf clásico y experimental sin precedentes. Una quedada a la vieja usanza en la que no habrá prize money, ni sponsors, ni pegatinas, pero seguro que habrá muchas risas y se dejarán caer varios míticos de la playa; pues ya tenemos confirmados algunos legends, shapers, activistas ambientales, artistas y amantes de la cultura surf. 

 

Después de muchos años celebrando el solsticio de verano en el Cosmic Children, y además habiendo sido el año año en el que el espíritu Cosmic ha viajado por distintos rincones de la tierra (California, Cantabria, Costa Rica, Brasil y Chile), creemos que ha llegado el momento de cerrar bien el círculo y celebrar el solsticio de invierno en un lugar tan especial como El Palmar (Cádiz).

 

Para la ocasión llevaremos unas tablas, muchas ganas de surfear, un par de guitarras y ganas de liarla parda en algún tablao surfero. Buscaremos pescaito frito, barbadillo y el derroche de simpatía que caracteriza a la gente de esas tierras. Y esperemos encontrarnos con el sol (por algo es la Costa de la Luz) y con buena mar. El último Cosmic del año está por llegar.

 

Larga vida al surfing.

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.

As in previous editions, you will be able to try out some new creatures provided by Pukas, Ahau, MW Surfboards and Donald Brink himself put some boards available to participants to test the fluidity of retro, experimental and asymmetric. This year we will also have some hand-planes shapers such as Michael Kenney and fin makers such as the local Macho brothers from Macho Fins, a local manufacturer spreading their stoke tru the globe delighting riders as Leah Dawson.

This weekend you will be able to ask all these great shapers for they give advice on shapes that best suit your surfing.

Find out a few examples of handmade beauties and their construction process:

Embarking on a journey through California, Mexico, Indonesia, Hawaii, Puerto Rico and Australia, watching this movie is a must.
