Retro Single Fin Contest @ Batu Bolong

Retro is still a major hype around the surfing world too. So it's no surprise we see more and more retro boards on the beaches, which is a nice thing. Although, surfers have always been individualists, through the last years, you could see more and more different shapes appear in the line-up and surfers can just pick the stick they love the most. No matter if it is their standard 6"0' shortboard or their 9"5' wooden balsa board from the 70's. So, big ups for the Guys from Drifter Surfshop Bali, that are hosting the 3rd annual retro single fin contest today at Tugu beach/Batu-Bolong. The world of competitive surfing, could definitely need more inspiration, because progress is always a result of creativity.

The contest directors will surely care for all your needs and you can just enjoy a nice day at the beach, meet some friends and dive into the local surf community, have a piece of cake and watch the aftershow later on.

Rip Curl Cup Invitational organizers still waiting for the perfect swell

Padang Padang - Bali

Earlier this week, a first solid swell appeared at the famous spot Padang Padang, where the legendary Rip Curl Cup Invitational will hopefully take place soon. Nevertheless, neither the contest organizers, nor the surfers estimated the swell to be large or consistent enough, to run the event.

This Summer, for the first time since 2008, the ASP will run a world tour event in Bali again. From 18 - 29 June 2013 Kelly Slater, Mick Fanning & Co. will make Keramas their playground for the never ending game of surf at the Oakley Pro Bali 2013. And there is of course a good reason why the WCT finally decided to return.

Keramas is not only considered one of Bali's most consistent point breaks, but the world. And as you might have heard, the wave quality is excellent at this time of the year. In addition to this world-class right-hander, there are also various other high class breaks nearby.
