2010 Curacao Challenge: freestyler's happy hour

The Curacao Challenge Freestyle competition is off to a good start. With wind speeds picking up in the afternoon the competitors were able to pull off some big moves. The Freestyle competition makes use of a Double elimination with the first rounds completed today.

Youp Schmit from Bonaire is competing in the Under 18’s and is also trying to see if he can keep his ground in the 18+ category. Surprisingly he managed to do even better between big boys beating Quincy in the semi-final. But his no-handed shove-it didn’t prove big enough to defeat the wide variety of moves by Bjorn Saragoza in the final.

Pictures of Day 4 will follow on this website soon.
