• The Cosmic Children Festival rides a retro wave a success!

The Cantabrian festival celebrated its 8th edition in the sun and sand and ended a wave of success.

On the 15 and 16 of June, the site of Valdeareanas beach, in Liencres (Piélagos) hosted this mythical meeting of pioneers, renowned surfers and fans of retro surf.

Three generations of surfing legends from all over the country were booked in for the Cosmic Weekend that included surfing competitions, live music, surf and art photography, retro surfboard displays and environmental workshops.

The highlight of the festival was the 50 Year Tribute of Surfing in Spain and the presence of surfing pioneers from the '60s such as José Manuel Merodio, Jesús Fiochi and Carlos Beraza who brought a touch of class and incredible tales to the event.

In all, the Cosmic Children Festival was a huge success with many attendees walking away not only with a warm inner glow, but a head full of memories destined to last.  It was an epic Cosmic Festival 2013 and plans are already underway to make the 2014 event event bigger, better and even more cosmic.

The Cosmic Children Festival organisation would like to thank Custom Drinks, Billabong, y Estrella de Galicia, Pukas, Cabreiroá, The Santander & Piélagos city councils, la Junta Vecinal de Liencres and the Cantabrian Surfing Federation.
