The second annual Intercollegiate Surf Tournament in Playa Tamarindo, Guanacaste will be held today, Saturday, December 1st.
The tournament is organized by the Surfing Commission, Liceo de Villareal with the aim of promoting the sport and creating opportunities for recreation, with the development and exposure of young talent in Guanacaste.
This initiative is seen by its organizers as a way to fight student dropouts and social risks to which students are exposed in the area. The only requirement for participation is that they are students, enrolled in school.
The first edition of this tournament was held in 2008, also in Tamarindo and had the support of the Ministry of Public Education (MEP) and the Surf federation of Costa Rica (FSC).
The organizers are hopeful that the tournament will gain greater importance to the students and they would perform and excel each year as a result of this perfect end year activity.
The organization has the support of the Youth Action Foundation (JWF), a nonprofit organization that helps prevent student dropouts by implementing various mechanisms, such as football games and now Surf.
