In a departure from the previous year’s format, this year’s Rip Curl Cup will see 24 rather than 32 competitors: 12 international icons and 12 of Indonesia’s finest barrel masters in man-on man heats. “Having just two surfers in the water in each heat allows them to really make the most out of the chance to be out at Padang-Padang in a virtually empty lineup…an absolute dream come true,” says Rip Curl’s SE Asia Marketing Manager James Hendy
The waiting period for the 11th annual Rip Curl Cup Padang-Padang, long known as the Ultimate Tuberiding Contest and Bali’s longest running professional surfing contest, will begin on July 5th and end on August 17th, giving Huey a full six weeks to deliver the exacting conditions that will see the 24 of the finest international and local tubemasters competing in the spitting green barrels of the Balinese Pipeline. 6 WEEKS of waiting period to ensure catching an epic swell for the "one-day, one-swell" event. The contest will be run entirely on one epic day, when contest directors see an ideal "Padang swell" in the forecast, they will give the green light and the 24 competitors will have 24 hours to make it to Bali's Bukit Peninsula.
