Vans Salinas Int'l Longboard Festival crowds out Spanish town of Salinas

Surfersvillage Global Surf News, 2 August, 2013 : - - After five days full of longboarding madness, Salinas quietly woke up from what seemed like a dream. You could feel this year’s event would become even more massive, when the previous Sunday, the camp was absolutely jammed. The town became small for a week.

This year’s competition, VANS Salinas Classic Invitational, was huge. The wall was totally crowded with people waiting for the guest longers, the weather was magnificent and the perfect waves were awaiting. When the tide rose up, the four finalists, Antoinne Delpero, Clovis Donizetti, Ruben Fuente and Elliot Dudley offered a total show in the best tube lived in Salinas since the Duct Tape from 2011. Everything turned out perfect!  
When the sun went down, the music performances kept the crowd giving it all night after night. From Raimundo Amador’s guitar, Tiki Phantons spectacle, Blues & Decker’s surprise to all 15 music groups that extraordinarily played in our stage. 
Likewise, the small ones had their time for competition too, and there was a small tent where they could design their own original sneakers. Little by little, between rain and sun, but always with the most breathtaking waves; Salinas Classic Invitational 2013 took place and will be remembered, above everything else, for turning this town into Europe’s long capital for one weekend.
