BALI EXPRESSION SESSION

Sin puntuaciones, sin licras de competición, sin contar olas... Sólo los Pros, y una chica, intentando coger tantos tubos como pueden en Padang-Padang.
Ayer se disfrutó de una "expression session" sin igual. En la playa de Padang no cabía un alfiler y la gente disfrutó de un gran día



No scores. No jerseys. No wave count. Just the guys (and one girl) in this year's contest trying to get as barreled as possible at Padang.

TAHITI 2012

Cuando ves estas imágenes y además escuchas a los Pros hablar de estas olas, entiendes la adrenalina que se tiene que sentir cuando se pillas tubazos como estos... Tahiti se acerca y se palpa en el ambiente.
Aunque antes de Tahiti viene el espectáculo del US OPEN; os mantendremos informados.

BETHANY HAMILTON INVITADA PARA PADANG-PADANG

Bethany Hamilton, reconocida surfista profesional por su espectacular surfing y la pérdida de su brazo por un ataque de tiburón cuando tan sólo tenía 13 años mientras surfeaba en Hawaii, ha sido invitada para el campeonato de Padang-Padang 2012 en Bali.
Bethany ha declarado que tan sólo ha surfeado 2 veces en la temida ola de Padang-Padang, pero enseguida se "enamoró" de ella y de sus potentes tubos.




Hamilton earned her invitation to the Ultimate Tube Riding Contest based on her solid credentials in big, hollow surf, and her several impressive free-surfing performances out at Padang Padang in recent years. Hamilton has also charged the treacherous barrels at Teahupoo in Tahiti, and is a regular at many of the lesser-known heavy reef-breaks near her home on Kauai.

“I only surfed Padang Padang for two solid swells but I immediately fell in love with the wave,” Hamilton said. “It’s challenging but then once you get a barrel you are just so exhilarated.”

In 2003 Hamilton became arguably the world’s most famous surfer when, at the age of 13, she was attacked by a 14-foot tiger shark while surfing off Kauai’s North Shore. The attack left Hamilton with a severed left arm. Miraculously, just one month after the attack, she returned to the water to continue pursuing her goal of becoming a professional surfer. In 2004 Hamilton published a best-selling autobiography entitled Soul Surfer, which was later made into a major motion picture.

BARCELONA

Muchos han sido los años que pasé en Barcelona, y después de catar todas las penurias surferas del mar Mediterráneo, el dios Neptuno regala ciertas sesiones que son muy bien recibidas entre la comunidad surfera del Mediterráneo.
Lo cierto es que hay buenos baños pero MUY escasos; como ejemplo, la foto de la portada de hoy fue tomada en los espigones de Masnou y aquel día estuve solo en el agua.
Este video de hoy no recoge una buena sesión, pero sí algunos baños que sacian la sed de olas entre los surfistas mediterráneos.

PADANG-PADANG 2012

Os dejo este aperitivo del arranque del Padang-Padang 2012 que se esta celebrando en Bali... Quien pillara!



July 12th, 2012 Padang Padang, Bali -- The 32 surfers invited to compete in the 2012 Rip Curl Cup Invitational at Padang Padang will gather at Bali's most revered wave this weekend for the event's opening ceremony.

Among the international surf stars receiving one of the coveted Padang Cup invites are Chris Ward (USA), Jamie O'Brien (Hawaii), Anthony Walsh (Australia) and Dean Morrison (Australia). Among the 16 Indonesian surfers invited are defending champion Lee Wilson, Garut Widiarta, and legendary Balinese surfer Rizal Tanjung.

July 17th, 2012. Uluwatu, Bali, Indonesia -- Any doubts about who sits atop the pecking order at Uluwatu were put to rest on Tuesday when local legends Made Lana and Wayan Gobleg overpowered a field of much younger adversaries to take the top two spots in the trials of the 2012 Rip Curl Cup Padang Padang Invitational.

As the top two finishers in the Bukit Trials, Lana and Gobleg earned wildcard berths into the main event and the chance to compete for $10,000 in prize money. They will join 30 of the world's best tube riders at Padang Padang when an ideal swell prompts contest directors to run the 2012 Rip Curl Cup, any day between now and August 26th.

FINDE "SOMERO"

Nuevamente nos hemos tenido que conformar con unas condiciones más que pobres durante este pasado fin de semana. A pesar de todo, y como cada fin de semana, hemos disfrutado de un agradable fin de semana y alguna olita hemos podido coger.




Again we had to settle with poor conditions during this past weekend. But, as every weekend, we enjoyed a nice weekend and we could get some little waves.

PADANG-PADANG 2012

Sólo en Bali se saborea el arranque de un campeonato de clase mundial con un ambiente completamente cultural gracias a sus ancestrales costumbres. Quien ha vivido el espíritu de Bali sabe de lo que hablo; quien no lo haya vivido, sólo tiene que ver estas imágenes para comprender el ambiente que rodea semejante evento.
El cuadro de competición es de primera linea: Jamie O´Brien, Anthony Walsh, Bruno Santos, Laurie Towner, Dean Morrison, Flynn Novak, Chris Ward, Kalani Cahpman y los clásicos locales: Rizal Tanjung, Garut Widiarta y Lee Wilson entre otros.





2012 Padang Padang, Bali – An elite group of tuberiding specialists gathered at Padang Padang beach on Sunday for the opening ceremony of the 2012 Rip Curl Cup. They came from as far away as Tahiti, Hawaii, California, Australia, New Zealand, South Africa and Brazil to draw their heats and find out who they will surf against in the opening round of competition.

The largest crowd in event history showed up at Padang Padang to watch the presentation and press conference with the 32 invited surfers – 16 of Indonesia’s best and 16 of the world’s top tube riders. The opening ceremony marks the first day of the six-week event waiting period, and means that all 32 invited surfers are now on-call to be at Padang within 24 hours notice if 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 swell to arrive during the waiting period. The kecak dance, always a fan favorite, is also a highlight for the surfers, said defending Rip Curl Cup champion Lee Wilson.

“Coming down here and seeing all the people on the beach and watching the kecak dance, it always gets me pumped because I know I'm going to be pulling into some big Padang barrels soon,” Wilson said. “This is the first year I've been able to take my daughter to the opening ceremony. It's cool to be able to share this with her. She loved it.”

Contest organizers devised the heat drawing so that each four-man heat features two Indonesian surfers and two international surfers. Rip Curl has also left four spots open in the contest for two mystery wildcards, to be announced later in the waiting period, and the two winners of the locals-only Bukit Trials.

After the draw was complete, two-time Rip Curl Cup champion Made “Bol” Adi Putra found himself in Heat 8 one of the mystery international wildcards.

“I have no idea who it is,” Bol said of the mystery wildcard in his heat, “but for sure it's going to be someone dangerous. This contest is invite-only. Everyone in this event is the best of the best tuberiders, so they are probably saving that spot for a really gnarly guy.”

A series of powerful Indian Ocean swells are headed towards Bali and contest directors are planning to run the Bukit Trials at either Padang or Uluwatu on Tuesday when the first swell is forecast to hit. The next swell is scheduled to arrive on Thursday and is expected to be much larger. Contest directors are monitoring this swell closely and eyeing a possible Thursday morning start to run the 2012 Rip Curl Cup at Padang Padang. Stay tuned to www.RipCurl.com for official event status updates.

ARTE PARA PADANG-PADANG 2012

Comienzan los Trials para uno de los campeonatos del mundo más potentes de olas tuberas; como no, la cita es en Bali, en la famosa y temida ola de Padang-Padang.
Y como no podía ser de otra manera Kevin Walsh (artista de reconocido prestigio en el ámbito surfero), ha puesto la nota de color para el campeonato.

Quién sabe si el próximo artista es nuestro querido amigo y tatuador "RAYO"; desde luego su primer trabajo en el mundo del surf ha dejado boquiabierto a muchos y potencial no le falta. Rayo: nos veremos en BALI!!! ;)



AQUÍ UNA MUESTRA DE LA INCREÍBLE CAPACIDAD ARTÍSTICA DE RAYO:
(Si queréis alguna tabla super exclusiva no dudéis en contactar conmigo)


The Trials begin for one of the most powerful world championships of barrels, of course, the appointment is in Bali, in the famous and feared Padang-Padang wave.
And Kevin Walsh (an artist with a huge prestige in the surf world industry), has brought a touch of color to the championship.

Who knows if the next artist is our dear friend and tattoo artist "RAYO", certainly his first job in the surfing world has left many people speechless and he shows his huge potential. Rayo: We will see you in Bali! ;)

Kuta Beach has changed a lot in the past 40 years; gone are the sand dunes, crystal clear water, and natural vegetation. What we have now is hotels, malls, soft drink advertising, and traffic! But hey, there's way worse places to be, and the waves are still pumping.
