-

Jason Whitehead took the top spot at last weekend’s Blue Water World Cup spearfishing competition at Palapas Ventana Resort in Baja California.

Whitehead scored 316.7 points, with the marlin he speared putting him above Ivan Struthers, who came in second with 300.2 points. G.R. Tarr (209.8), Nathan Minnatta (165) and Chase Ames (131.2) rounded out the top five.

In the team competition, Pez Pequeno came in first with 745.6 points, Red Tide finished second with 486.1 points, and Mas Floppers (267.05), Just The Tip (244.3) and Mar y Tierra (50.15) took third through fifth place.

The competitors raised US$3,625 (~3,039 Euros) for El Parque de los Buzos, a playground being built. Donations came in the form of sales of diver catches as well as donations from dive team Just the Tip, along with team Redtide’s G.R. Tarr, plus Jason Whitehead.
