Our surfing legend Juan Ashton made sufing history today in the World Master Surfing ISA Championship on the beautiful beach of Punta Roca in El Salvador. His flowing surfing style and veteran tactics help him to be the first surfer in Grand Master category to earn an unprecedented 4 world titles. Leading the Puertorrican team to a 4th place overall , winnng the copper medal over 22 countries competing in this contest.
Another Puertorrican figure was Carlos Cabrero who placed 2nd in master division, obtaining a well deserved silver medal. Also I have to make clear that Carlos is the only latino in winning the prestigious Pipeline Volcom Contest in history. The Puertorrican surfing community and " The Alternative Surf Culture" blog thank's your bravery in the wave arena and the honor of having athletes with our country in the soul. Enjoy the ride y ARRIBA PUERTO RICO!

Another figure that impact the surfboard construction and was present in San Diego Expo was Javier Huarcaya. His extruded polystyrene blanks, closed cell, which mean that do not absorb water, is a most go choice. I still have a retro fish and do not have dings or pressure dings. The new 7 series resist high temperatures and do not delaminate. High tensile strengh foam with combined epoxy resin. Enjoy the ride!

I had the magnificent idea to travel from Puerto Rico to the Sacred Craft Expo in San Diego California for an academic sabatic in surfing. After 9 hours in an airplane we arrived to San Diego with a superb weather, blue skies and a shining Sun. My first booth stop was Surfy-Surfy and for my surprise I met the legend and creator of the Bonzer, Malcom Campbell. Last year stopped in Puerto Rico on his shaping tour and made some light vehicles on our island. He knows well Puerto Rico and its surfing community! Will post some of our photos and experiences daily, Enjoy the ride!
