The Rip Curl Padang Cup – Expression Session last Friday While the anticipated swell delivered on Friday, conditions were too inconsistent to run the Padang Cup, so the event organizers utilized the opportunity for an expression session for invitees. The boys clearly enamored with the chance to surf uncrowded Padang, gave us a glimpse of what’s in store for the contest

A volcanic archipelago of 18,000 islands (16,000 on high tide, apparently), Indonesia is also home to the Wallace Line, which separates the Indian and Pacific Oceans and leads to all sorts of wild conditions and energy in the strait between Bali and Lombok.

The first shots are fired at Keramas with Chris Zaffis, Adam Bennetts, Marlon Gerber and twins Darma Yasa Bleronk and Dharmaputra Tonjo. Barreling right handers, and they are living the dream.

Waves were only 2-3ft with perfect ramps. Betet Merta, Tipi Jabrik, Nyoman Blacky, Bleronk, Kin Goldman, Nathan and Saxon were having so much fun at “Canggu Rights”. Check all the photos here!

Quiksilver Indo team riders have made the most of pumping lefts at Padang Padang, to barrels at Keramas on the East coast, and consistent beachies from Padma to Canggu over the past 6 months. Check it out.

Darmayasa Bleronk is from Padma beach, in Kuta. One of the famous Padma Boys, he is an awesome surfer in all around conditions. Here Bleronk is deep in a Padang-padang barrel. This Image was shot with a Canon 7D, in a Liquid Eye Water Housing using a Tokina 10-17mm.
Back Story: This Image was ALSO asked by a Bali Magazine’s Editor supposed to be out in August and also not printed.

The forecast was right, ISL.com crew woke up early and drove to Padang. Arriving there some big sets were coming through but tide was too high. So we waited and we scored.
Here a bit of what was going on in Bali’s most famous break:

December has arrived! We usually have a lot of rain and Westerly winds at this time of the year, but as we’ve mentioned before this year is rather unusual. Not that we’re complaining! Over the last few days we enjoyed a mid-size swell that brought Bali fun waves, 5-6ft at some breaks, and with the light Southerly winds we’ve been able to surf all day. The coconut wireless is buzzing with stories that it’s been barreling all over the island.
