They came, organized, surfed incredible and won one of last year’s awards: Build their dream board in the workshop of Enjoy Your Surroundings by the advisory of shaper Erik Labayen. This video shows the Garcia family working on the process and how their surfboard. We are sure they will rip will it in this edition.

In our 12 years of cosmic journey, surf families have been a pillar and an essential part of the festival. As this great surfer family grows, things are getting more difficult but also more exciting to reach that first place. And from here we take the opportunity to appeal to all those families who want to fight for your honor and glory. Surfing families, this is your event, so do your best so you can also build the board of your dreams.

For those who are new to this topic, you should know be aware that the “Tag Team of Families” is a relay heat composed of parents, children and occasionally grandparents. The test gathers up to 3 generations of surfers from the same family competing as a team. We turn an individualistic sport like surfing into real collective stoke for the families, gathering the past, present and future generations of surfers.

Last year the Garcia family clearly won the Tag Team Familias, so as a prize they won the possibility to shape and build their dreamed board with Erik Labayen from Enjoy Your Surroundings workshop. Led by one of the greatests Spanish and European surf champs, Dani García, followed by his son Néstor  (13 years old), his sister Silvia and his brother Raúl (alma mater of this festival and personage of the industry and surfing celebrity for decades).

Familia Garcia shaping their board

In the video you can see how they built a nice replica of their very first single-fin, bought to one of the spanish surfing pioneer Jose Manuel Merodio. It has been a source of inspiration ever since.

Thank you, thank you and thanks again to the whole Billabong crew, for the past 10 years of support, enthusiasm and commitment to this shared and collective cosmic dream

In 2006 we started creating a new event concept avoiding conventionality and competition use. Committed to bringing together the pioneers and families of surfing life, and focusing on the culture of surfing, the environment, the retro boards and music as a thread.

This surfer celebration of the summer solstice, became the first festival of the European season for the last 10 years. And the support of Billabong was key to grow from the national to the international scene. Today is a benchmark that has participants from different corners of the planet: Professional surfers get together with the retro surf lovers, families, surfing legends, gromets, mermaids, artists, shapers and rockaholics and influential characters of the surf culture from different generations.

In this eleventh edition Cosmic Children crew takes a new direction with its festival, with new players and fresh ideas.

We will be eternally grateful to Billabong and we want to make special to Sam Carrier and Dani Garcia, as well as other great professionals like Craig Sage, Carl Weisser, Reid Pinder, Rafa Vilallonga, Carmen Sainz, Dave Rastovich and many others.
