Last weekend, Saturday, November 29 and Sunday, November 30, Playa Teta in Punta Barco witnessed the last Discovering Surfing Talents (DTS) youth surf tournament of the year. Winners received Banzaii surfboards during an awards ceremony that was accompanied by musical performances from Nicole Vallarino and the rock group Achus.
During the elimination rounds and quarterfinals, competitors waiting their turn took the initiative to clean Playa Teta from trash that had washed up.
The wave conditions were lackluster during the weekend, but as some experts say, “small waves, big moves,” and that is just what José Luis Rodríguez showed during his championship ride.
DST is keen on developing the country’s next generation of surf athletes. Stay abreast of their latest news by visiting DST.com.pa.
