Back in early February Rip Curl hosted a 4-star WQS event at Jobos Beach, Puerto Rico that was eventually won by Cody Thompson. But with 144 pro surfers invading the little island in the Caribbean, some of them were bound to fall in love with the waves and women.

The following two videos were filmed during and after the event, showing us the excitement of the contest, and the beauty of the place once the circus left town. The second video, posted by Los Angeles native Matt Pagan, follows four of the surfers from the event who just couldn’t bear to leave.
