IGP promotes 146 cops

Inspector General of Police (IGP) N.K Illangakoon has promoted 146 police constables to the rank of police sergeants with effect from 2009, the police media unit said today.The constables were promoted after they had filed fundamental rights petitions in court saying they had faced injustice by not being promoted. After considering their petitions filed in court last year the IGP has decided to promote them with effect from 2009.2.15, the police media unit said.

Climate change threatens selfdetermination of citizens in island States UN rights council

The President of Kiribati and the Prime Minister of Tuvalu were joined by Deputy UN High Commissioner for Human Rights Flavia Pansieri, who opened the discussion, telling the Geneva-based Council that human-induced climate change is not only an assault on the world’s shared ecosystem but it also undercuts “the rights to health, to food, to water and sanitation, to adequate housing and – for the people of small island states and coastal communities – even the right to self-determination.”The spokesperson for the Office of the UN High Commissioner for Human Rights (OHCHR), Rupert Colville, briefed the press on the discussions, saying that continued sea level rise at their current rate, could result in low-lying Pacific Island States, including Kiribati and Tuvalu being submerged within decades. He noted that some citizens have already been forced from their homes, while the two Governments struggle to supply people with adequate supplies of food and clean drinking water.According to a Government minister from Kiribati who briefed the Council in January, preparations are underway for a time when climate change “refugees” might exist. The Government of Kiribati has been buying land offshore and providing people with the skills to “migrate with dignity” when their islands were no longer habitable, Mr. Colville said.Survival is one thing but if the islands of Kiribati and Tuvalu do disappear, the spokesperson said, gone with them will be all the trappings of a modern state – Government buildings, courts, hospitals and schools. That will undermine those States’ peoples’ right to self-determination.Their leaders will have to find ways of reconstituting their States elsewhere, or persuade another government to provide their citizens with passports, welfare and protection. If they can’t do this, these “climate change refugees” will become stateless.“We are calling for human rights standards to be put front and centre of discussions on mitigating the negative impacts of climate change,” said Mr. Colville. “Any action designed to limit climate change must have people’s rights at its core. This should be taken into account when the UN Climate Change Conference convenes in Paris later this year to draw up a new global agreement.” read more

Deschamps Tactical changes were key to France win

first_imgFrance boss Didier Deschamps said that the tactical changes he made in the first-half had a key impact on his forwards in their 2-1 win over GermanyLes Bleus bounced back from Toni Kroos’ 14th-minute penalty to claim all three points in their Nations League clash with Germany after a brace from Antoine Griezmann in the second-half.It’s France’s 11th win in their last 15 matches and one more against the Netherlands at Rotterdam next month will secure them the top spot in Group A1.Speaking after the win at Paris, Deschamps praised the reaction of his players following a difficult opening 45 minutes and reflected on the changes he made during the game.“There was a reaction and we upped the intensity and tempo. The Germans played with real intensity in the first half,” said Deschamps on the UEFA website.“I modified my tactics after 25-30 minutes and found a better balance that gave more freedom to my forwards, especially Kylian (Mbappe) and Antoine (Griezmann) on the wings.Top 5 Bundesliga players to watch during the weekend Tomás Pavel Ibarra Meda – September 11, 2019 With the international activity cooling down for the next month, we go back to the Bundesliga’s Top 5 players to watch next weekend.The German…“It’s a good thing in terms of our aim of finishing top of the group, but we were up against a very good German side today.”France lead Group A1 with seven points from three games.#FRAALL 🇫🇷 2-1 🇩🇪 #NationsLeagueLe fait/homme du match, c’est _________. pic.twitter.com/ciFUWazno6— UEFA Nations League (@EURO2020) October 16, 2018last_img read more

Xbox One or PlayStation 4 Which system for which type of gamer

first_imgDo you like TV? Are you a hardcore gamer? Are you a casual gamer? Are you a tech layman? Well, those categories are pretty vague and the Xbox One and PlayStation 4 aren’t out yet, but I’m going to spitball and determine which is the right system for you. These are guidelines, based on my intimate knowledge of your tastes and personality, and you should feel in no way concerned that the Kinect or PlayStation Eye will tell me anything I don’t already know.FPS player (bro)Call of Duty: Ghosts and Battlefield 4 are coming out for both systems, so it’s a pretty hard choice. You can win an Xbox One if you get Mountain Dew and Doritos, or you can win a PlayStation 4 ahead of time if you buy the Taco Bell $5 lunch box. Unfortunately, I don’t think you can enter to win both if you get a Doritos Locos taco, Cool Ranch or not. It looks like the junk food marketing aspect is a wash, but only the Xbox One washes it down with Mountain Dew.Ultimately, Halo’s going to be the dealbreaker, and Halo 5 is practically confirmed for the Xbox One some time in the future. You think any of your friends are gonna be playing Killzone? Put on your Spartan armor and get pwning when you get bored with your military shooter of choice.FPS player (standard)Okay, now that the bros are out of the way, let me remind you that you’re a serious FPS player. Why should you sully your hands with a gamepad when a mechanical keyboard and high-sensitivity laser mouse, both wired of course, are the only tools worthy of your craft? Let the kids have their toys.So you won’t be playing Halo 5. You probably won’t be playing Destiny either, unless a PC port is announced. You can still play Call of Duty: Ghosts and Battlefield 4 if you want a laugh, and for true gaming you’ll always have your well-worn, memorized installs of Counter-Strike and Team Fortress 2.You know you weren’t really considering getting a console, anyway.Sports fansAsk your friends which systems they’re getting. If you’re better than them at Madden, get the same system so you can beat them any time. If they’re better than you at Madden/NBA 2K14, get the other system so they can only play you on your home turf.Indie gamerYou can’t use Desura or GOG or download Humble Bundle games on Xbox Live or the PlayStation Network, man. Keep gaming on your PC but, if you want a console right now, the the PS4 has a lock on the indie titles.Retro gamerSurprise: Get a Nintendo Wii U. The Xbox One and PlayStation 4 don’t have much word in what classic games will be available on them, and the Wii U not only has its own Virtual Console, but a Wii menu with a pretty full back catalog of Virtual Console games you’ll be able to upgrade to full Wii U versions (so you can play on the gamepad) for $1.50 a pop when they come out.When the PlayStation 4 gets PSOne and PS2 Classics, though, that’ll be another story entirely.Early adopter (with money to spend)Uh, get both. What are you, a Luddite content with Angry Birds? Step out of yesterday and jump into tomorrow!Early Adopter (with an actual budget)Sell a kidney, then get both.Early adopter (with no budget)Sell two kidneys. You’ll be fine (note: I am not a doctor).Brand-dedicated hardcore gamer with discerning tastesLet me remind you just how superior Microsoft/Sony (circle one) is at crafting a genuine gaming experience, unlike the bros and casuals at Sony/Microsoft. The Xbox One/PlayStation 4 is clearly the superior console of the generation, and the people who spend money on the PlayStation 4/Xbox One have no taste.Not only does Xbox Live/PlayStation Network offer a much better online gaming experience and more services than PlayStation Network/Xbox Live, but the Kinect/PlayStation Eye will offer valuable gesture controls and video chat and it’s obviously better than it’s included/not included in the box. The new Xbox One/PlayStation 4 gamepad is also immensely more comfortable and responsive than the PlayStation 4/Xbox One gamepad, and you can’t even use the PlayStation 4/Xbox One gamepad without your hand cramping up.Then there are the exclusives. I mean, sure the big games around launch are going to be cross-platform, but look at how Ryse: Son of Rome/Knack/Crimson Dragon/Killzone: Shadow Fall/Killer Instinct/Forza Motorsport 5 look amazing/underwhelming, with Driveclub/infamous: Second Son clearly looking like inferior/superior titles down the line.RealistNew game consoles are coming this month. They cost $400-500. They don’t have many major titles that won’t also be released on a competing console or PC. Wait a bit for more interesting games to come out, or you’ll be using either system as little more than a three-game toy that plays Blu-ray discs for the next six months.last_img read more

PWN2OWN Hacker Contest Targets Smartphones

first_img None of the smartphones that were slated for the attack were compromised. With mobile devices limited on memory and processing power, many researchers (hackers) main exploit techniques are not able to work.TippingPoint also identified unexpected complications with the possible combinations of handsets, operating systems and carriers introduced into the exploit equation. A spokes person at TippingPoint went on to say; “we didn’t realize how complicated it was.” In some cases TippingPoint wasn’t able to determine the exact phone or operating system’s version early enough to give researchers the lead time they needed to work up an exploit of a vulnerability they might have already uncovered. In next years Hackers Contest, TippingPoint plans to work out the details ahead of time so that it can publish the rules and specifications of the smartphones in plenty of time for researchers to prepare.An Apple iPhone could have been hacked if a researcher had wanted to part with the vulnerability. A TippingPoint spokes person commented, “there was an exploit at the show that could have broken the iPhone, but the researcher said that the $10,000 wasn’t enough to part with that level of vulnerability.”Some researchers just want to hold on to the bugs they have uncovered, even when offered $10,000 in cash.

Expo Liberia a Tico tradition

first_imgExpo Liberia is 10 days of celebrating history, ranching and agriculture of Costa Rica’s most productive region, Guanacaste. From July 19-29, the streets of provincial capital Liberia, in the northwestern part of the country, will be filled with 100,000 expo-goers. Events includes a carnival, rodeos, bull fights, cattle shows, horse parades and numerous mounted competitions.Héctor Muñoz, president of the Liberia Chamber of Cattle Ranchers, the group organizing Expo Liberia, said the event is a union of ranching culture and tourism.“In one place you can find all of the diversity of Guanacaste,” Muñoz said. “The expo reveals the true identity of the region.”The celebration has taken place for nearly 200 years. It began in 1824, when the people of the Nicoya Peninsula chose to annex from what today is Nicaragua. The annexation anniversary is July 25.One of Muñoz’s favorite aspects of the week is the horse and cattle shows. There are numerous shows for different breeds raised in Costa Rica, and judges award breeders prizes for having superior animals.“These shows present the most beautiful horses and finely bred cattle,” Muñoz said. “It’s full of adrenaline and what ranching families have been practicing for decades.”One example of pride, tradition and beauty at Expo Liberia is the nomination of a novia, or bride, of the expo. This year’s novia is Irene Sánchez, great-granddaughter of one of the founders of the Liberia Chamber of Cattle Ranchers. Muñoz said she will hand out awards and prizes throughout the week.The rodeo is July 24, and includes barrel racing, pole bending, team penning and breakaway roping. Costa Rica’s horsemanship championship will be held on July 25. The traditional tope, or horse parade, is on July 28.Evenings during the expo will be filled with presentations of traditional Guanacaste music and dance, and of course, regional food.“There’s horchata, tamales, barbeque, fresh tortillas, sweets and more,” Muñoz said. “You can have all the delicacies of Nicoya, one right after the other.”See more details on the celebration and history of Guanacaste in next week’s edition of The Tico Times.For an event schedule and more information, visit expoliberia.com.

Costa Ricas Solís administration seeks changes to 485 million Chinabacked highway contract

first_imgRelated posts:Lawmakers could approve $395 million Chinese loan to expand Route 32 as early as this week Lawmakers to discuss San José-Cartago highway expansion Lawmakers pass $395 million loan for Limón Route 32 in final debate Solís pledges to fix La Platina bridge – the third president to make the promise Costa Rica will send China a new proposal by the end of the month for a revised contract to expand Route 32, which connects San José with the country’s Caribbean port city of Limón, Public Works and Transport Minister Carlos Segnini said Tuesday.Following a weekly Cabinet meeting Segnini said Chinese officials had agreed to consider renegotiating the terms of the $485 million contract signed by former President Laura Chinchilla’s administration. The plan calls for a four-lane expansion of 105 kilometers of the highway, the main access to the Caribbean.Officials from the Public Works and Transport Ministry, or MOPT, traveled last week to China to discuss what President Luis Guillermo Solís’ administration believes are flaws in the contract that could jeopardize the project.Costa Rican officials asked for an extension through February to provide a final evaluation. Costa Rica hopes to revise a loan agreement with the Export-Import Bank of China, as well as the deadlines for property expropriation and the relocation of public utilities.Other problems include the terms of arbitration for potential legal disputes. The contract states that disputes would be settled in Chinese tribunals. Costa Rica hopes to appoint a neutral third country in such cases.Costa Rica also now opposes waiving immunity for government officials during legal disputes, which Solís’ administration believes is unconstitutional. Segnini earlier this year said several provisions of the contract need further review, including clauses that set substantial fines if Costa Rica fails to comply with the terms.Representatives of several professional associations and private sector chambers also say the agreement is problematic.Transport officials are seeking to renegotiate provisions by Chinese contractor CHEC that require only Chinese workers and companies be used to carry out construction.“We made ​​it clear to our counterparts in China that while this project is significant and important for our country, the [contract] provisions were negotiated by the previous administration under conditions that we believe are not appropriate for our country’s interests,” Segnini said. “Those conditions not only jeopardize final approval in the Legislative Assembly, but they also could be ruled unconstitutional by the Constitutional Chamber of the Supreme Court.”The minister said China would respond by Nov. 30.Members of a legislative commission focused on issues affecting Limón who met with Segnini before the Cabinet meeting appeared skeptical about the minister’s report.Social Christian Unity Party lawmaker Luis Vásquez said, “Mr. Segnini made no progress and failed to bring concrete proposals from China.”The National Liberation Party’s Danny Hayling said all 18 of his party’s lawmakers are willing to pass the bill to approve the contract in its current form, because “it is clearly beneficial for the country.”A majority of lawmakers last week agreed not to discuss that bill until President Solís returns from a trip to China in January. Solís hopes to directly renegotiate with China’s Xi Jinping some of the contract clauses. Facebook Commentslast_img read more

New generation of Costa Rican surfers puts sport in the spotlight

first_imgBut the fan pick didn’t quiver under the towering presence of his idols. Muñoz, who bounces through chaotic waves in the tranquil way a frog bounces across a pond, beat Medina in the first round with 7.73 and 6.17 wave scores. By virtue of the first round win, he automatically advanced past the second round, but in the third round Medina got his revenge and knocked Muñoz out of the tournament.“When I was leaving the water after Gabriel Medina won, I thought to myself for a second, I can’t believe I did so well against these guys,” Muñoz said. “For a kid from a little place like Esterillos to be in front of all the cameras, it was awesome.”Now, as his international image grows through connections with big-name brands and magazine photo shoots, Muñoz said he remains conscious of being a leader for the country’s younger surfers.At the Grand Reef Final last Saturday, after a winning heat, three teenaged boys tiptoed up to Muñoz while playfully shoving each other and laughing. They waited for him to finish posing for a selfie with a fan before greeting him with hugs and congratulations.One of the boys was Malakai Martínez, a 14-year-old surfer from Tamarindo who Brenes calls one of the leaders of his age group. With Martínez, Oscar Urbina and Aldo Chirinos, the boys national champion (15 and under), the sport has a line of visible talent for years to come.“These are the guys who are going to be world champs in four years,” Brenes said. “At this stage they might be surfing even better than Cali (Muñoz) or Noé Mar (McGonagle) did.”Muñoz said he gets goosebumps watching the juniors, while 21-year-old Fillingim admitted that the next group is on the verge of bringing Costa Rica surfing to an even higher level.“I remember when I was that age I was still dreaming about doing some of the stuff they’re doing,” Fillingim said. “But now they’re like doing backside full-rotation airs and frontside full-rotation airs and getting rail gains. I think the younger generation is going to be even better.” Cali Muñoz (left) and Carlos Brenes share a laugh with President Luis Guillermo Solís during a July 7 visit to Casa Presidencial. (Courtesy of Casa Presidencial)An olive branch from Casa PresidencialThough it has overlooked surfing in the past, this year Costa Rica’s government gave the world champion team the highest form of acknowledgment by extending an invitation to visit President Luis Guillermo Solís in Casa Presidencial earlier this month.“These surfers are another example of this extraordinary talent that shines in many tough conditions,” President Solís said while the surf team looked on. “These athletes haven’t always received our support or understanding of what they’ve had the heart to take on in the sea.”From the sands of Playa Hermosa, the soft-spoken Fillingim said younger surfers can look up to the medal-winning team and now follow a blueprint for winning future surfing crowns. When he was a kid growing up on his hometown waves of Santa Teresa, the champion surfer said he didn’t realize that his passion could be a vehicle, carrying him to his dreams on dry land. “Since I was little I wanted to meet a Costa Rican president, and thanks to surfing we just did it,” he said.Still, a short chat with the president does not make up for years of inattention. One way the government can strengthen its recent commitment to surfing is by investing in more major surfing events, which can, in turn, help tourism and local municipalities.During his meeting with the team, Solís compared politics to surfing, saying that politicians choose which legal path to take the same way surfers decide which wave to ride. Now, policymakers at the Costa Rican Institute of Tourism have to decide whether or not to take up an offer to host the World Surf Games for the first time since 2009. Costa Rica is currently in back-and-forth talks with Aguerre and the ISA about hosting the event, which holds the promise of bringing more money to surfing and tourism.In May, Costa Rica rejected the ISA’s $800,000 charge to set up the event, according to daily La Nación. But Brenes said the government is rethinking its original decision and calculating how much revenue could be made from the event. In 2009, tourism numbers boomed as 100,000 visitors descended on Playa Hermosa during the week-long surf fest.As talks between the government and the ISA continue, Aguerre says Costa Rican surfing needs more support from its public sector to build on the momentum established through its world title.“(Costa Rica) is really benefitting from this but it’s not investing much in terms of national resources,” he said. “If you have the best restaurant in town but you don’t promote it, then nobody is going to go.” 2015 Grand Reef Final mini-grommet champion Isuaro Elizondo, 11, of Panama said he comes to Costa Rica to surf for the higher level of competition. Alberto Font/The Tico TimesAs one wave goes out, another formsThough the highest possible team goal was achieved through the world title win, surfing’s most sought-after honors are normally reserved for the individual pro circuit. So as the country’s top surfers develop, they are likely to venture further away from national events, especially as they climb higher in the world rankings.Muñoz and Noé Mar McGonagle (Mar opted out of last weekend’s Grand Reef Final to surf in California) are ranked in the top 25 of the World Surf League’s Qualifying Series halfway through the season. To break into the Championship Tour, however, they must finish in the top 10 by season’s end.Noé’s sister Leilani ranks among the top female surfers in the world for her age group. And Fillingim, who said his goal is to break into the top 100 qualifier ranks next season, continues to rack up accolades throughout Central and South America.Though the Dream Team may never come together again in international competition, it’s left a golden mark on a country that’s wavered in promoting it.As ISA president, Aguerre was in Playa Popoyo, Nicaragua on the World Surf Games podium to lay medals on the champion riders. After Aguerre crowned the Costa Ricans, the young stars circled around with their right hands stretched into the middle.“Who are we?” they shouted. “Ticos!” they answered in booming unison.“Where are we from?”“Costa Rica!““How are we?”“Pura vida!“Seven weeks later, past the sponsor tents and the onlooking parents camped on the black sands of Playa Hermosa, you could almost hear the chant coming from the waves as an 11-year-old surfer popped up above the crashing water before landing an aerial.“Costa Rica surfing has shown that it can get to this level and continue going up,” Brenes said. “It’s not just once. There’s so much material for years to come.” Facebook Comments PLAYA HERMOSA, Puntarenas – Four by four, they launch themselves on surfboards into burgeoning waters like a disciplined and fearless army. All of the skinny soldiers — kids not more than 15 years old — emerge from the swell to tame seemingly intimidating waves with laughable ease.Behind their mid-afternoon silhouettes dotting the sea, cloudy skies blend with the Pacific so that the western horizon fades away into a blue mesh that seems to have no boundary.Today is the first day of the 2015 Grand Reef Final in Playa Hermosa, Garabito, where the country’s top junior talent opens the competition for the older stars. This year, Costa Rica’s national surfing championship brings together the country’s best for a weekend that is both a celebration of a world title just won, and a peek into a golden generation of young surfers that is stirring up a tidal wave of buzz.There’s the 15-year-old girl with diamond eyes and a surreal instinct in the water. As she walks parallel to the shore, the ocean bends towards her. Once in the surf, she zigzags the water in search of the perfect drop-in before popping up on the board, which moves as if attached to her feet from birth.Unlike most young surfers who wait in one spot for the right wave, Leilani McGonagle hunts for them with a strength that is impossible to imagine in a teenage girl until you witness it firsthand. And despite her age, the weekend’s winner of the female junior category is already closing in on the world’s top 100 women surfers in the World Surf League’s Qualifying Series. Her older brother, 19-year-old Noé Mar McGonagle — absent from the weekend’s competition — is currently the top-ranked Costa Rican surfer in the world at 17th in the men’s Qualifying Series.Then there’s Carlos “Cali” Muñoz, the shaggy-haired surfer from Esterillos, dubbed by a popular surf magazine as the “Flying Costa Rican.” At Playa Hermosa he lands an aerial spin amid collapsing waves to draw awes from the beachside audience.Anthony Fillingim Abarca, the current Latin American surfing champion, came to the event early to coach his 13-year-old cousin competing in the grommet’s category.Along with now national title-holder Jason Torres and 12-time women’s national champion Lisbeth Vindas, these young athletes make up what’s come to be known as El Equipo Soñado, the Dream Team. And they’re leading the way for a golden generation of surfers in a sport that has historically been neglected by the government. Even with the swell of collective talent, which came together to win this year’s International Surfing Association (ISA) World Surfing Games in Nicaragua, Costa Rica is still struggling to find support for its prize-winning sport.“You have an enormous amount of young talents who have the oceans as their courts, but they’ve been overlooked in favor of other sports,” said ISA President Fernando Aguerre.Born on a waveRaised on the famous wave break of Pavones on Costa Rica’s southern tip, Leilani McGonagle says she’s too young to even remember the first time her surfer parents put her on a board, though they tell her she started when she was about 18 months old.“It was either you go surfing or you sit on the beach and watch,” she said, seated on the winding root of a palm tree at Playa Hermosa. “I decided I wasn’t going to sit on the beach alone.”McGonagle and her brother, Noé Mar — children of a British father and American (U.S.) mother — led the way to Costa Rica’s first-ever world championship win last month. Noé Mar’s individual gold medal at the World Surfing Games, highlighted by a spectacular 9.93 run (out of 10), and Leilani’s silver medal pushed the tiny country over perennial surfing powers like the United States, Australia, and Brazil. Together with the other four members of El Equipo Soñado, the McGonagles proved the future generation already has its footprints planted in the present.Costa Rican Surf Federation spokesperson Carlos Enrique Brenes says surfing has taken off here in recent years thanks to surfer parents like the elder McGonagles. With built-in coaches training their kids on the waves before they’re even potty-trained and taking them on international travels as they grow up, the country’s young surfers have seen so much by the time they’re teenagers that they surf without fear, Brenes said. It doesn’t hurt that they share the waters with equally talented friends and siblings.Brenes, who’s been involved with the sport for 12 years, said international events used to be too big for Costa Rican surfers. That’s changed.“These kids aren’t intimidated anymore,” Brenes said. “They’re friends with the best surfers in the world.” Overlooked and underpaidThough Costa Rica is now on the map with some of the world’s best competitive surfing nations, a few years ago the national surfing federation couldn’t even afford to take a team to international championships. Severely underfunded and basically ignored by the government up until two years ago, federation leaders could barely scrape together enough money to pay for airfare, not to mention room and board for each athlete.Surf federation president Randall Chaves said without a steady stream of support from the government, Costa Rican surfers have clear disadvantages going into international competitions.“They don’t have money to eat, they don’t have money to sleep or to travel,” Chaves said. Ideally, he said, “we always try to put them in their comfort zone so that the only thing they have to worry about is to compete and win.”This is despite the fact that the Costa Rican Institute of Sports and Recreation (ICODER) has officially recognized surfing as the country’s highest performing publicly-funded sport. Costa Rican surfers have won nine world medals in the past four years.Still, today surfing is in line behind cycling and track in terms of government funding, according to surf federation spokesperson Brenes.International Surfing Association president Aguerre suggested the country’s leaders had misguided sports priorities. “The game is here,” he said during a recent phone interview, referring to surfing. “There are not many sports in which Costa Rica can compete for Pan-American gold medals and world gold medals. Well, they just won one of them with surfing.”But the sport is slowly demanding more attention. This year, for the first time, surfers became eligible to receive government scholarships. Ten surfers are currently getting scholarship money, according to Andrés Carvajal, head of ICODER’s Sports Performance Department. The department has a half-million dollar budget to dole out annual scholarships to young athletes across the country.Carvajal said the addition of scholarships for surfers was the government’s way of recognizing the regional and global achievements that the athletes have garnered while carrying Costa Rica’s flag.On top of domestic sponsorships from the likes of Kölbi and the national beer company, international surf and skate brands also fund the surf federation’s tournaments, helping to improve the sport’s infrastructure. And, apparently, it pays off for those brands: more surfing merchandise is sold in Costa Rica per capita than anywhere else in the world.Still, private sponsorships aren’t enough to keep the sport advancing, said Aguerre, who co-founded Reef, the major surfing brand that hosts Costa Rica’s surf finale each year. He said if the country neglects its young surfers by failing to provide long-term funding, pot holes will sprout up on their road to development.“It’s world-class talent without the world-class means,” Aguerre said. Though only 14 years old, Malakai Martínez is already being hailed as the next great Costa Rican surfer. Alberto Font/The Tico TimesSurfers grab their placeAt Playa Hermosa, the biggest waves hit “Cali” Muñoz when he comes out of the sea. An unrelenting swarm of fans, one after the other, crash upon the always-vibrant Muñoz. Each request for a signature or picture is met with gratitude and smiles from the country’s biggest surf star.Streaks of gold run through his dark, bushy hair, which sags heavy with water over a marketable smile that never wavers. A few miles away, his facade is plastered on a 20-foot billboard over Route 34 as it nears Jacó. With sponsorships from Red Bull, Volcom, and FCS in his pocket, the 22-year-old Muñoz is the humble rock star of Costa Rica’s world championship team. As recognizable as he is talented, the surfer from Esterillos carries such an upbeat ethos that Aguerre says he could be an advisor to the pope.It’s easy to see why: sponsors give him monthly pay checks to do what he loves and help support his family. Muñoz says surfing kept him afloat when he could have sunk under bad habits.“When I was young I had a lot of problems like anyone else,” he said. “(Surfing) opened up an incredible culture for me, like traveling and doing your own things and also helping my mom. I think surfing is my whole life.
