2010 Curacao Challenge: freestylers of the Caribbean

After 5 days of competition, months of preparation by the organization and the volunteers, the 2010 edition of the Curacao Challenge is over. We had some tough weather conditions making for some tough decisions throughout the week. But one thought remains on everybody’s minds: it was great.

The event proved again successful with hundreds of spectators on the beaches, thousands worldwide on the Internet, a hundred competitors from all over the world, local & international press and excited sponsors.

The results are in and we had some surprises, but also some expected winners in the different categories.
