With a fresh swell hitting Bali this evening, the Rip Curl Cup Padang Padang 2014 is on HIGH ALERT for a potential start today Monday 11th August.
As seen on Live.ripcurl.com, Round 1 of the Rip Curl Cup ran last Monday at Padang Padang Beach, Bali in epic waves. However, with Surf conditions not providing the consistency and size throughout the whole day to finish the event, contest officials made the decision to go on hold pending the new forecasted swell arriving today.
“We were happy to get the first round of the main event done last Monday,” said Rip Curl’s Marketing Manager, James Hendy, “We are all keeping our fingers crossed that the next swell will be here tomorrow morning so we can crown the 2014 champ in great conditions. Padang Padang sure showed us how fickle she can be last week, it was a real test for all the competitors but there were definitely some diamonds out there providing some epic action for our live Broadcast that will continue tomorrow morning. Stay Tuned!”
Round 2 is expected to commence today, Monday 11th August at 6.30 AM ( WITA ) Bali, Indonesia time. Watch it Live – www.live.ripcurl.com
