THE MONO AULLADOR SURF SERIES TOOK PLACE IN EPIC SURF AT PLAYA HERMOSA, COSTA RICA MAE!
We woke up at 5am to check the waves and much to our surprise we saw epic
Playa Hermosa Condition with double overhead bombs showing up. We hurried to set up the tents and get the contest started as kids started showing around 6:30 am to secure their spot at the contest. Heats started around 9am with the Pro-Am division and we saw the first epic barrel of the day from Noemar Mcgonaggle just before the horn. The contest went smoothly until we hit the low tide that forced us put it on standby until 1pm. In the meantime staff from the contest started filling up some water bombs and the war was on! Things got even wilder when some kids started pouring cherry and blueberry syrup with a little bit of flour everywhere!
The contest was back on at 1pm with the under 10 division and the whole crowd at the beach was pumped up seeing this little rats charging triple overhead waves.
Around 5 pm the finals took place, where our birthday boy Noemar Mcgonaggle took the win over Caliâ€™s MuĂ±oz brother, Alberto MuĂ±oz. He received his check along with eggs, flour, syrup and people singing happy birthday.
Congrats to all the finalists for such an amazing event and their level of surfing. Pura Vida!

The final event of the 2013-2014 Pufferfish season finished off with a bang at Makaha on Saturday March 22nd. With some solid swell and good conditions in the forecast we knew by mid week that the event was going to be on. Saturday morning, we pulled up in the dark at the world famous Makaha beach to find perfect 2-4ft rights, looking more like Lower Trestles than somewhere in Hawaii. Needless to say it was packed with Groms ready to surf. We started the first heat at 7:30am sharp knowing it was going to be an all day affair. Before we could even blink it was time for the finals and to give out the awards! Thanks to everyone who made the event such a success, especially Kai Borg, and the Volcom surf team for donating some of their boards for some lucky winners.

Carlos MuĂ±oz took first place at the Alas Prime Event in Ecuardor! His rail to rail and air game swept the rest of his competitors! This was the third stop of the Alas (Latinamerica Surf Asociation) tour. The event is rated as a Prime and had the best surfers from Latinoamerica and Brasil. In the final, Cali defeated the former Latin champ, Francisco Bellorin from Venezuela. Cali ended up comboing Francisco with a total heat score of 16.34! After the win, the boys went straight to MontaĂ±itas for the Volcom True To This Premiereâ€¦ And yeah, it was a big night of celebration with the Volcom crew!!!
Good Job Cali!!!

The Volcom Team set sail and landed in Puerto Rico a couple of weeks ago. We had a large crew, including Balaram Stack, Carlos Munoz, Parker Coffin, Noah Schweizer, Pat Schmidt. Also joining us from El Caribe was Ricardo Delgado, Aron Gieger, Willito Carasco, and Brandon Sanford. We scored some fun waves, warm nights, good coconuts, and also met some great people! We rounded out the trip with the premier of 'True To This' at the Pool Bar in Rincon. Was quite a night of festivities!!! Thank you, Puerto Rico, and thanks to all who came out to see the the movie and celebrate with us!

The Quiksilver Pro Gold Coast just happened and Dusty Payne wasnâ€™t there and thatâ€™s weird.Â Dusty is one of the most talented surfers in the world. A place for him on tour was only destiny. But after a few years of ill-timed injuries and lackluster results on the WCT, Dusty bit the dust. Heâ€™s now off the tour â€” but certainly not off the map. As he talks about in the interview below, this year heâ€™ll be chasing fun instead of chasing 4.5s. But come on now Dusty, 4.5s? Weâ€™ve seen that tail toss of yours â€” and itâ€™s at least worthy of a standalone 7.33.Â â€”Brendan Buckely
SURFING MAGAZINE: Are you planning on competing at all this year?Â
Iâ€™ll compete in a few events, but I wonâ€™t be taking the WQS too seriously. Iâ€™m just going to whatever waves I like, the ones that have went well in the past.
So youâ€™re not trying to get back on tour?Â
Thatâ€™s not my focus right now. I didnâ€™t... ((Full Interview on Surfing Magazine's Website!))
