Trials winner Agus Blacky Setiawan was introduced to the 500-strong crowd before MC Matt George introduced the Kecak dancers.  After their fiery performance the spotlight turned to a traditional Wayang puppet show, put on by Bali’s most famous puppeteer, Cenk Blonk.

With the Rip Curl Cup trials run and won on Friday at Uluwatu, Saturday night capped off a fine weekend on the Bukit Peninsula. The Rip Curl Cup is back for 2015, and is already rolling out the good times in fine style.
