Surfing experts agree it was a tough day for longboards as the wave was quite heavy and there is a lot of shallow reef at this particular surf break.  Perfect board breaking conditions; just ask Juan Caraballo and his board.

Congrats to the winners and kudos to all participants and supporters that made this event possible. Surf is a great sport and Bocas del Toro is blessed with plenty of it.
