I have traveled many places all around the world for paintball and I can confidently say that South America is one of my favorite! This last weekend Brandon Short and I played the final CSP event that was held in Guyiquil, Ecuador. We have played this whole season with team evolution who’s home town is in Ecuador. Being that we were in their home town for this event, we got to live the life of a true Ecuadorian for one week! Friday before the event started Brandon and I hosted a clinic. It was held at the Guyiquil Golf Country Club, which was pretty cool. Once the event started on Saturday I noticed pretty much every player and team uses Dye gear. It’s always nice to see that!
Once Sunday rolled around it was time to do business. Evolution has two teams in both division and everyone was looking pretty solid. When finals came around both our teams were in it. This was a good look but we all knew we won’t be satisfied unless we bring home the gold. The lower division team played first and won the event 4-3 in overtime! Now it was time for our final match against Monosalvaje, another local Ecuadorian team. They had Bobby Aviles from infamous guesting with them. We got a few penalties and had to play two points 4 on 5, but we ended up winning 3-2! The team who took 3rd was Curikatas, also an Ecuadorian team. They have an awesome player on their team named Gaccu!
Well it was a great event held by the CSP and we made history with Evolution by winning in both divisions! Juan Daniel, captain of Evolution and everyone else from both teams played awesome and took great care of us! I can’t wait to go back!!
