Spraying Che In Mex – Part I: Pics

We’re finally back from Mex, where the Zicatela Pro went down in primo contest conditions. More than 100 competitors made the trek down to the Mexican state of Oaxaca to partake in either the Women’s, Dropknee, or Men’s division. Seven days of competition culminated in an action packed finale at the infamous Mexican Pipeline. Our very own James Murdock ended a valiant campaign in the semis to take an equal 5th placing amongst a heavy international talent pool. All this despite dislocating his shoulder a second time only a couple days prior to competition while attempting a massive roll at Zicatela. Congrats to Dave Hubbard who took out both the DK and Open Men’s divisions and Karla Costa who won the Women’s. More results are copied below with full heat breakdowns available on the Zicatela Pro website.
