6 October 2008, Kuta Beach-Bali: The “best all girls surf shop in the world” set out to produce ” the “most fun all girls competition in the world” and on Sunday they did just that. Using the Coca-Cola ISC Women’s Division competition as the basis for the event, the exuberant crew at Surfer Girl created darn near 24 hours of activity around it, turning out a very big “first time ever all girls surfing event” at the most popular and world renown beach this side of the planet….on Kuta Beach
Starting with the press conference at the Hard Rock Café on Saturday night, then hosting a whole lot of action down at Halfways on Kuta Beach. In addition to the “My First Ever” surf contest, the bodyboard contest, the Coca-Cola ISC Tour Women’s contest, and a Dad-Daughter tandem contest, there were tons of other interesting activities going on all along the beach including ice-skating, horizontal bungee, water cannons, dance competitions, a nail & beauty booth, beach volleyball, beach soccer, and more.
And when the sun set a different kind of fun began, with Surfer Girl fashion shows, a lot of dancing from various groups, a kid’s charity band, and then the awards presentation. And just when you thought it couldn’t get any better, one of Indonesia’s hottest bands, Nidji rocked the beach to the delight of the crowd who went nuts for them!
Truly the best day at the beach ever, not just for the girls mind you, but for all the guys as well!
