BALI, INDONESIA – In conjunction with the Asian Surfing Championships (ASC), Billabong is proud to announce that it will be hosting a 6 Star ASC event at Balangan Beach, Pecatu, Bali, from 4 – 7 July 2013. Set against a beautiful beach backdrop, Balangan is highly regarded by surfers for its long breaking left handed waves. The event titled after Billabong’s key global campaign, “Life’s Better in Boardshorts”, is a surf event that has been conceived to not just bring Asia’s best surfers together, but also beach lovers to have a good time.
Current Indonesian, and Asian Surfing Champion, Raditya Rondi says “I think it’s so cool Billabong is back on the tour and hosting a contest in Balangan – it’s really one of the best left hand waves in Bali!” He adds, “I’m really excited to see how the ASC will grow this year. It’s a step-up for the Asian surf scene, and definitely poses healthy competition amongst us athletes”
