The former four time National Champion, Gilbert Brown López took the win at the Marley Cup on the second stop of the Kolbi National Surf Circuit in Puerto Viejo, this past weekend and after five years since his last win.

In the female division it was Paulina Summers, also a local of Puerto Viejo, who took the Open and Junior.

Brown also took the Masters category, the 37-year-old managed to beat the favorite Jair Pérez who took the lead a few times but was finally beat by the local in the last wave.

“My respect to all rivals. I had many years without a win and at 37 it means a lot considering the high level of surf we have today. But I am even happier that so many children from Puerto Viejo are surfing so well and getting good results in the Circuit”, commented Brown.

Jair Pérez still maintains the top of the ranking, but Brown is now in the competition as one of the favorites to win the national title 2019.

Puerto Viejo offered big waves that served for a great show.
