Luis Vindas: on top of the table

The 10th annual Circuito Nacional de Surf DayStar 2009-2010 will come to a conclusion this weekend June 25, 26 and 27 at Playa Hermosa’s La Curva.

It will be a war zone for Jaco’s Luis Vindas and Jason Torres who will put everything they have into the water for the Open category National Title. Due to the fact that this 7th date of the Circuito carries 5 stars and with it awards 2,000 points to the winner of each category, the athletes of the championship intend for this appointment to be their fourth best win, a situation that puts anyone who wins in a good place in the final ranking. In the best case, it will reward the surfer with the #1 ranking and the National Championship win.
