  2017 Rip Curl Cup Invitational at Padang Padang, Indonesia   Waiting Period July 10th - Aug 10th

Padang Padang, Bali - MMonday, 7th Aug 2017: After several close calls at Padang Padang in recent weeks, the waiting period for the 2017 Rip Curl Cup Invitational has drawn to a close without the magic swell required to run the hallowed event. Despite a month-long waiting period during prime swell season (July 10 - August 10), the waves at Padang Padang never reached the world-class caliber required to hold the Ultimate Tuberiding Contest.

For now, The Cup will remain in Bali with reigning Rip Curl Cup Champion Mega Semadhi (IND). The local Balinese surfer who grew up just down the road from Padang Padang will have to wait until next year to defend his title. Meanwhile, the international invitees, which included such heavy hitters as Mason Ho (HAW), Bruno Santos (BRA), Bruce Irons (HAW), Clay Marzo (HAW) and Damien Hobgood (USA) in 2017, will be eager to steal away The Cup in 2018.

With just five days remaining in the waiting period, invited surfers and fans were hoping that the impressive westerly swell that hit Bali over the weekend of August 5 might provide the classic daredevil waves the Rip Curl Cup demands in order to hold competition. While there was the occasional spitting bomb on Saturday evening at Padang Padang, the conditions were never spectacular or consistent enough to greenlight what has become the most anticipated barrel shootout of the year.

Aug/03/2017 Rip Curl Cup Eyes Potential Saturday, Aug 5th Start

For the second time in the event waiting period, contest directors have switched the official event status from red to yellow, or 'High Alert.' After a close call on Thursday, the event has targeted a potential Saturday, Aug. 5th start to competition at 10 AM.

Jul/27/2017 Rip Curl Cup Back In Holding Pattern; Next Potential Contest Swell On Aug. 3rd

Due to a lack of epic surf conditions at Padang Padang on Friday morning, the Rip Curl Cup Padang Padang will not hold competition this week and will instead wait for a larger swell on the charts for next week.

Jul/24/2017 Rip Curl Cup on 'High Alert' for possible Thursday start at Padang Padang

The 2017 Rip Curl Cup is officially on 'High Alert' to be held on Thursday, July 27th at Padang Padang. With an impressive SW swell currently tracking towards Bali, event directors have changed the official event status to 'Amber' and surfers are now on high alert for a Thursday, 7 AM local start time to run the one-day WSL specialty event.

Padang Padang, Bali - Monday, 10 July 2017: Invited athhletes and surf fans from around the globe gathered at Padang Padang beach on Sunday for the opening ceremony of the Rip Curl Cup 2017. They came from far and wide to bless the event with good waves, a safe competition, and officially christen the start of the holding period to the one of a kind tube riding invitational.

It was a standing room only crowd gathered at Padang Padang to watch the presentation and meet and greet with several of the 16 invited surfers, including defending champion Mega Semadhi (IND). The opening ceremony marks the first day of the one-month event waiting period, and means that all 16 invited surfers - eight Indonesians and eight internationaal surfers - are now on-call to be at Padang Padang witthin 24 hours notice if and when event directors decide to give the green light to run.

The opening ceremony was capped off with the traditional Balinese Kecak Dance performance, to ask the Balinese Gods for permission to hold the contest at this sacred spot and for a massive Padang Padang swell to arrive during the waiting period.

A series of Indian Ocean swells are forecast to reach Bali in the coming weeks and contest directors are monitoring them closely. According to Surfline, the official surf forecast partner of the Rip Curl Cup, the first significant swell will reach Bali on July 15-16, and a possible better swell is currently on the charts for July 20-22. Contest directors are monitoring these swells closely should they develop into potential contest swells to run the Rip Curl Cup. Stay tuned to ripcurl.asia for the latest event status.

Rip Curl Hosts Padang Padang Beach Cleanup

Padang Padang received a welcome facelift just in time for the Rip Curl Cup 2017. The hallowed beach was the site of a massive cleanup effort organized by Rip Curl on Friday, July 7th. Rip Curl Asia staff and volunteers were joined by local environmental community Malu Dong. Together the coalition collected over 50 extra large bags worth of trash - enough to fill a 2-ton dump truck - from the beach, the car park, thee cliffs and the valley behind the beach. Thanks to all the volunteers who pitched in and got their hands dirty on Friday to help clean up one of Bali's most beautiful beaches and the home of the Rip Curl Cup.

The 2017 Rip Curl Cup Padang Padang will be webcast live to the world at https://www.ripcurl.asia/id/events/international/rip-curl-cup-padang-padang/home.html.

Episode 19 of The Search, Iron Horse Featuring Bruno Santos and Guillermo Satt
On the Search with South American slab hunters Bruno Santos and Guillermo Satt.

"We are in the middle of the Pacific, on a volcanic rock, getting bludgeoned by massive swells. We are, as remote, as you can get."

That's Australian photographer Ted Grambeau talking. If you know Ted Grambeau, then you'll be able to hear the sound of his deep, rough, vaguely erratic voice; the volume rising with each syllable, the delivery slowing with each word, dragging out each sentence until you can almost feel their isolation.

Ain't No Wave Pool - Mick Fanning on #TheSearch by Rip Curl
What if I told you there was an unknown sand-bottom right that is five kilometres long, breaks 20 metres off the beach, holds six foot of swell and has only been surfed by four people on the entire planet?
Would you believe me?
What if good-ol'-having-a-year-off-Mick Fanning was one of those surfers, and he told you that this wave had him haulin? arse like an F1 driver down a strip of sand that never seemed to end.
Would you believe him?
This ain't no fucking wave pool! This is the real world. This is The Snake.

Track: Rattle Snake

Tyler Wright 2016 WSL Women's World Champion
Growing up on the South Coast of NSW, Australia, with a family of passionate surfers, Tyler Wright was always destined for surfing greatness. Through the guidance of her older brothers she was hooked on the sport early, and due to her clear passion and insane talent, secured a sponsorship with Rip Curl in 2002 - a partnership that continues to this very day. At the age of 14 she found herself on the world's stage - the highest level of surfing competition, the World Tour. Since then she has not only remained consistent but has excelled, finding herself on or near the top of the ladder almost every year. When it came to winning a World Title, it was never a question of 'can', but rather 'when'. From everyone here at Rip Curl - CONGRATULATIONS TYLER! This win couldn't be sweeter, or more deserved.
