Pro Surfing returns to RINCON Puerto Rico with APSPR event

APSPR Corona Extra Pro Event #2

Domes Beach, Rincon Puerto Rico
12 - 13 March 2011

Event # 2 on the APSPR Corona Extra Pro Surf Circuit competition season set to roll

Surfersvillage Global Surf News, 18 February, 2011 : - - On Saturday and Sunday, March 12 and 13, the Corona Extra Pro Surf Circuit will hold a $15,000 Men’s and Women’s tournament at Domes Beach, in the town of Rincon, on the northwest corner of the island. This will mark the 19th edition of the popular circuit, which runs under the auspices of the A.P.S.P.R. (Association of Professional Surfing of Puerto Rico).

APSPR was founded in 2001 by local surfer and surfboard shaper Werner Vega and his wife, Viviannee, to provide international quality surfing competition to the Caribbean.

The Corona Extra events have become the premier showcase for the veteran surfing legends on the island, like Juan Ashton and Carlos Cabrero, as well as a springboard for a young generation of hot competitors like Brian Toth and Dylan Graves, who are now making their mark in the international rankings. All four of them are previous APSPR Circuit Champions and are expected to compete at Domes.

Graves, 25, from Isabela, became well-known to Pro Surfing fans around the world during last November’s ASP World Championship event, held at his home break of Middles, northeast of Rincon. He was the Puerto Rican Wildcard for that event, meaning that he was selected to face nine-time World champion, Kelly Slater. With thousands of his Puerto Rican fans cheering him from the beach, Graves put on a competitive effort against the Champ, but went down in defeat. Slater went on to win that event and secure his record-setting tenth World Title.

The enthusiasm from that historic event has carried over in the media and put the spotlight on Puerto Rican surfing like never before. Thousands of surf fans are expected to fill the shores of the iconic beach at Domes next month, where the 1968 World Championships were conducted.

APSPR Director Werner Vega is hoping that March at Domes will provide the strong Atlantic swells which make Puerto Rico the surfing mecca of the Caribbean. “The close proximity of Puerto Rico by air has made it the favorite winter destination for East Coast surfers from the U.S., especially the Northeast”, said Vega. “New Jersey pros Matt Keenan and Jason Reagan are regular visitors, and competitors in the Corona events, and are again expected at Domes. Floridian women like Connie Arias, Kirra Shepard and two-time Corona winner, Karina Petroni are also expected to be back again.”

On the Women’s side of the competition, Corona and APSPR have launched the careers of the top Puerto Rican surfers like Idalis “Lilac” Alvarado and Liselie Gonzales. Gonzalez, 23, of Canovanas, was the winner of the last Corona event, at Middles, and leads the current rankings for the Women’s Title.

Brian Toth, 25, of Isabela, was the winner of the Men’s event at Middles, and is the current leader of the Mens rankings, where he enjoys a slim lead over the Bursian brothers, Leslie and Tommy. The Corona Extra Surf Circuit season title will be decided this Fall, after the event at Middles. Another favorite for the event at Domes will be Darren Mushett. He always surfs well at Domes, which is his local break.

Surfing fans that are unable to attend in person at Domes will once again have the opportunity to follow the action online with the popular “Heats on Demand” feature. At the completion of each day of competition they will have access to every scoring ride of the event. On our website you can scan the draw, and select which heat you would like to view and much more.

Each scoring ride is shown, along with the points earned for that wave, through the technology of the Beach Byte computer scoring system. Each of the five judges enters their scores for each surfer’s rides into the computer, which tallies the points and decides the winners. All of that scoring information is then available on the APSPR website to anyone with access to a modem.

All of the competition will take place at Domes as long as surf conditions permit. The nearby break of Maria’s, also in the town of Rincon, is the backup site. Once again Corona Extra is offering a total purse of $15,000, with $10,00 divided among the men and $5,000 to the women.

In addition, Coppertone Skincare will be awarding their popular “Best Performance” award of $500 each, to one of the Men and one of the Women. Last October, at Middles, Brian Toth and Alexis Engstrom each won the Coppertone “Best Performance” for their top heat scores.

All APSPR events have the same goal and commitment:
To determine the best surfers at each event;
To provide them with the highest standard of competition possible;
To improve the knowledge and performance of all competitors;
To provide the competitors and the sponsors with substantial exposure and recognition;
To enhance the professionalism of surfing.

For all interested competitors, entries must be in by Wednesday, March 2nd “After Wednesday March 2nd, a late entry fee of $35 will be charged, until entries finally close on Saturday March 5th, announced Viviannee Vega. Entries can be downloaded at and mailed to APSPR office, or paid in person at Hang Loose Surf Shop, located on road 4466, Jobos Beach, P.R..

In addition to both days of surfing competition, Corona Extra will feature nighttime entertainment at several locations throughout the host town of Rincon, ensuring that the fun will continue around the clock all weekend.

Puerto Rican Coffee

An expreso or pocillo is your standard Italian espresso, brewed in an espresso machine and usually taken black. A local term for expreso is pocillo, which is a reference to the small cups in which the drink is served. Pocillos are very potent and highly-flavorable brews.
The cortadito, which anyone familiar with Cuban coffee will know, is also popular on the island. Mostly enjoyed after lunch or dinner at fine restaurants, it is an expresso layered with a very thin sheen of steamed milk. The name comes from the Spanish, “slightly cut.”
Café con leche is like a latté, but in Puerto Rico it usually involves a large dollop of milk in an even larger full-size cup. These are drunk in the morning, at home, local coffee shops or to help one get through traffic jams in rush hour. Café con leche is similar to the French café au lait.

Coffee Expo next month showcases Puerto Rico’s famous beverage

The steamy cup. The rich aroma. The bubbly rim…Puerto Ricans have a centuries-old love affair with coffee. This was way before coffee houses were hip, and decades before macchiato, dolce latte and mocha were trendy terms.
Our passion for coffee began 274 years ago, according to Cube Group’s Paul González and Orlando Martínez, as they announced “Puerto Rico Coffee Expo (PRCE)” to be held at Miramar’s Puerto Rico Convention Center Sept. 18 and 19.
“Coffee is part of our culture and our heritage, a tradition that is passed from generation to generation — a celebration of who we are,” said González on Tuesday.
Admired and respected as one of the best of the world for ages, Puerto Rican coffee has been preferred by royals, kings and the literary élite who ask for it by name. And even though it was Pope Clement VIII who popularized coffee in the 1600s, locals feel a special connection with the late Pope John Paul II, who visited the island in 1984 and was known to drink our coffee at the Vatican. Due to their distinctive taste and incomparable aroma, local coffee brands have been lauded in Spain, France, Italy, Czechoslovakia, Cuba and Germany, among other countries.

These are just some of the great reviews we received from our vacationers that stayed with us, here at EV Vacation Rentals in Rincon Puerto Rico.

“Great Value!”

Date of review: Dec 10, 2010

You just cant beat it for the price. Great room size, great service and location. Would have liked to try my hand at surfing. Maybe next time. Lots of things to do in the area, friendly people, and you get more of a sense of humble tropics Puerto Rico has to offer here than you would San Juan.

Stayed in March of 2010 and had a awesome time. We have stayed in Rincon before but by far this is the best place . EV and Joe are great people. So willing to share so much about the area and what to do. The apartment was super clean and so was the property. Nice view of the ocean. Joe and Ev told as about a water fall. It was so cool and awesome. One night some renters was noisy and they addressed it with out us saying anything. The bedding good be better quality. Other then that for the price, location and for a property owner making you feel so welcome- don't stay any where else. When I say clean I mean clean. Because I am a clean nut and this was above my standards.

Four of us booked this place. Never having been to the area we were unsure where to stay. This place was great. The owners are super people and very friendly and helpful. The view of the Caribbean sunset is unsurpassed ... The rooms are very nice and the price is right. I will return and highly recommend this place.

Our Stay at EV's Vacation Rental was phenomenal! The rooms are spacious, clean, and beautifully designed.There is a beautiful backyard with a great view of the water.We had a group of eight and this was definitely a home away from home. We picked guenepas off of Joe's and Ev's tree and they were very helpful with directions and picking out the best attractions in Rincon. We were very close to the beach, restaurants, bars, small plaza's, bakery's, and a small arcade. Ev also has a salon attached to the home where she does manicures, pedicures and haircuts that are very affordable.This vacation home is great for a group as big as ours or for a couple just looking for a romantic getaway. We loved it so much we have booked another stay. This was definitely a trip to remember!

Nice clean spacious rooms with a small kitchenette/coffee maker/ mini fridge. Rooms can easily fit a family or group of 4 with 3 double beds and a futon. If you have a car this is a great budget option to see northwest PR. It is about a 10min drive to maria's and domes and about 7min drive to tres palmas surfing beaches. You can see tarpon right off the beach at the bottom of the hill and the water is very clear. Joe and EV have maps to show you how to get around when you arrive and even gave us directions to the water fall in San Sebastian. I would definitely recommend it and would stay there again.

The overall service was excellent. Our hosts were friendly and helpful and eager to make our stay as comfortable as possible. The room was very spacious with kitchen facilities including a refrigerator, microwave and basic kitchen utensils. Amenities include cable television, AC and communal outside area for with a barbecue grill. The apartment complex has an ocean view and is located on a hill. There is a short walk to the beach where viewed some spectacular sunsets. Although the hosts provide a sitting area outside for guests, it is communal and there is no private access to outside. The location of the apartment complex allows for easy access to many of the beautiful beaches and other sites in Rincon. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay.
