RipCurl Padang Padang Cup Opening Ceremony 2018
Sunday 1st July 2018
Last Sunday the 1st of July was the day we have been waiting for in Bali since July 31st 2017. The ist is always the official starting date for the World wide acclaimed tube riding contest that goes down at Bali’s most spectacular surfing location of Padang Padang. Here’s a few photos that Ketut and I took while soaking up the atmosphere and entertainment that RipCurl Indonesia hosted. It’s always nice to catch up with so many great people at this yearly event and a big thank you to our friends at RipCurl Indonesia
In front of a large gathering of mostly surfers the afternoon got underway with an introduction of the competitors, both local and international. Before the best part in my opinion which is the hour long traditional Balinese Kecak dance performed by the local artists and dancers from the bukit area. Not to mention all the free food and drinks supplied all through the afternoon.
I’ve also been loading some video clips from Sunday onto our baliwaves Facebook page so if your interested feel free to go there and check them out.
Ok so the waiting time has begun for this years Padang Padang Cup with the whole month of July set aside for it. All we need now is that macking swell to hit Bali for just 1 day and the contest will be on.
