Get to know the winners of the 2023 edition.
2x World Champ Pierre-Louis Costes (France) and 3x World Champion Jeff Hubbard (Hawaii) attended the event in Playa Bluff in great fashion. Surprisely none of them won the Open Mens Division. The winner of the 2023 edition was Brazilian Sérgio Machado who got to beat (for a short difference – 12,67 x 11,84 pts) Portuguese Rodrigo Lopes in the final heat. Saying goodbye with a equal third place was PLC and Alvaro Yepez from Colombia. The Caribbean Sea, for the second year in a row, was on fire.
On the Dropknee Division the 4x Dk World Champ Sammy Morretino (Hawaii) clinched the win with their usual incredible performances on the knee. The Hawaiian monster beat Michel Copetta (Chile), who come in a close second place, Jayro Georget (Panama) and Edwin Nuñez (Panama), respectively third and fourth places in the final heat at Bocas del Toro, Panama.
The Portuguese crew stayed ecstatic when Joel Rodrigues beat their opponents on the Junior Division with 16,00 points (out of 20), winning the international festival for the second time and leaving Jerry Pastrana, from Costa Rica, in second; Rodrigo Daboub, from El Salvador, in third, and Pepe Centeno, also from Costa Rica, in the fourth place of the podium.
Until next year. xxx
