A smile-filled “Salud” and congratulations is in order as Sanuk ambassador Chris Sharma takes top honors at the Red Bull Creepers psicobloc climbing competition in Puente la Reina, Spain!

The “deep-water soloing“ competition was held on the town’s glorious 1,000-year-old bridge which extends 36 feet above the Arga River. Fourteen competitors assembled to test the limits of strength put on incredible displays of talent for a crowd of nearly 3000 spectators. In the Finals, Sharma faced off against fellow Sanuk climber, Daniel Woods. Chris ended up topping out of the bridge for a third time, taking the win, while Daniel earned a solid second place finish.

The event served as a perfect training exercise for the next month’s Psicobloc Masters competition in Park City, Utah which coincides with the Outdoor Retailer Tradeshow. Sanuk will see you there!
