Results for Rip Curl
The 12th edition of the Rip Curl Cup gets underway on August 1, and as is tradition Rip Curl will commence proceedings with a spectacular celebration to signify the opening of the competition waiting period that same day.
This year’s Rip Curl Cup trials are on standby from Saturday July 25 through to Friday July 31, and will be run on the best day of waves at Padang Padang, Uluwatu or Bingin over that window. The main event field has been reduced in 2015, to minimise the run-time of the Cup and capitalise on the best conditions available, and as such the one spot in the draw available for the winning trialist will be more highly sought after than ever, so please check in on live.ripcurl.com for the latest updates on all of the action.
Last year, the trials, which offer local standouts an opportunity to take on the best in the world on home soil, saw some of the best Padang Padang conditions and surfing of the year, and you can argue the case that the trials are almost harder to win than the main event, with the amount of talent in the draw.
Our official forecast partner, Coastalwatch, assures us there is plenty of swell on the horizon next week, and pumping Uluwatu is looking on the cards, so stay tuned for all the action and updates to come.
While you’re on the website be sure to check out our interview with last year’s winner Garut Widiarta, and see who else will be lining up alongside the defending champ in this year’s field, the strongest one in the 12 year history of the event!

After 11 years of awesome the Rip Curl Cup is back with a fresh format and new invitees, held at the same incredible wave, Padang Padang. Indonesia’s longest running and most prestigious event, the Rip Curl Cup Padang Padang draws competitors from all over the world, and this year is no different. In 2015 the waiting period has been cut to four weeks, the quality of conditions required to run has been ramped up from incredible to perfect, and the field has been reduced to 16 surfers, meaning heats will be man-on-man throughout and that competition can easily be run in one day.

Adam Melling, Mitch Parkinson and Harry Bryant find a wave that hasn’t broken in two years. The boys found themselves in the Telos for the Muzza Swell and while it wasn’t the biggest they did discover some of the most perfect waves in the region.

After some top secret wave-hunting missions over the weekend we enjoyed some classic Padang yesterday. This wave never goes out of style and the locals know how to charm this lady.
The Fiji Pro belonged to one, tall man: At this year’s event in paradise, Owen Wright stepped into the spotlight, surfing his way into history first with one, then two perfect heats in which he scored a maximum 20.00 points in each and won the contest.
