Bingin, September 22. A weekend of epic waves at the Bingin Open & family gathering 2015 presented by hurley culminated with the champions crowned in perfect four-foot Bukit Peninsula tubes. Agus Dag Sumertayasa claimed the open division, Nyoman Pill Suartika won the masters, Mega Artana took out the pro juniors, Ketut Agus the juniors and Cinta Hansel the pro junior girls, with winners of both the pro junior and pro divisions earning a free trip to the Mentawais thanks to one of our sponsors, Seabourn Surf Charter.
Our photographer was on the beach at first light and he brought this back. What did you get today?
We want to put some of these Indonesian kids in the spotlight now to showcase the level and hunger for the sport that is present – and how Indonesian surfing stands to benefit from them. First trip was to Keramas and the boys got plenty of barrel time and threw in some airs to mix things up. More here.
Our photographer woke up early and went to Canggu to check the conditions, he brought back some good shots.
Did you surf today? Was it good. Canggu was looking fun…
On Saturday 6th September Ulus was small and crowded – a lull between swells. Roxy surfer Hayanna Iguchi Murakawa was enjoying a surf with her friends when an hour and half into the session she heard people screaming: “I was sitting in the line-up when I heard people cheering and screaming. I looked to the side and saw a huge black fin rise up from the water.”
