Surfing Thailand Remembers 2004 Tsunami Victims


26 December 2012 – Phuket Island, Thailand

Phuket locals along with visiting surfers from around the world paddled out on this beautiful sunny morning at Patong Beach, Thailand to honor the victims of the devastating Boxing Day Tsunami which struck the island 8 years ago today.

On December 26, 2004 Patong Beach along with many other areas along the West coast of Phuket and Thailand were struck by a massive tsunami generated by the 2004 Indian Ocean earthquake. The wave caused a great deal of destruction along the waterfront and, in some areas, up to a kilometer or more inland. Thousands were killed in Thailand alone. Patong Beach was one of the worst affected areas of Phuket Island, although the destruction was not as bad as nearby Khao Lak. Patong, along with other effected areas in Thailand, have largely recovered since the tsunami

Around 30 surfers joined in the event put together by the Surfing Thailand organization. The surfers paddled offshore and formed a large circle by sitting on their boards and holding hands. Participants observed a moment of silence as flowers were set adrift within the circle to honor the dead.

“When I paddled out, all the memories from that day came rushing back to me. That feeling will never leave my mind,” said Decha Sitthidej, vice-president of Surfing Thailand and one of the Patong locals who were fortunate enough to survive the tsunami. “I hope we can continue to do this surf circle every year from now on,” Decha added, “This ceremony truly touched my heart.”

After completing the surfer circle the participants enjoyed a delicious lunch on the beach, promising to return again next year.

Environmental Efforts to Clean Up Bali: Owen Wright board up for auction to help Bali’s most iconic wave

December 10th, 2012 

 

Uluwatu, Bali –  Professional surfer Owen Wright has joined forces with his Major sponsor Rip Curl, in an effort to help clean-up Bali’s iconic surf spot, Uluwatu, by donating a surf board to be auctioned off to raise funds for the ECO SURF RESCUE ULUWATU Community project at his long time favourite 
Indonesian destination. 

Owen has been a regular visitor to Uluwatu for almost 10 years and has close ties with the local community. Owen and his father have been staying with the same family every year since he was 12 years old.  For Owen, Uluwatu is synonymous with Bali: “When I say Bali, I mean Ulus, because that’s where I’ve always gone and it’s the best.” says Owen. 

Seeing first hand the changes to the area, where dramatic increases in tourism and population have over run the small scale infrastructure, Owen has decided to contribute to the community effort to keep the local surf break and historic cave of Uluwatu clean and safe for surfers and visitors. All proceeds from the auction of his board will go to the group Eco Surf Rescue Uluwatu’s plans for a new waste processing system for the beach 
and cliff side area. 

 

The board, a custom made 6’4" by Parish Byrne, is one of the tall goofy footers favorites and was ridden by Owen during the Fiji Pro this year. Owen had this to say about the board: “It has the thumb-tail that I like on all my boards, only it’s pulled in a little more to hold in the bigger waves. I feel like this one worked really well in solid surf, but Parish (Byrne) and I are willing to donate it for Uluwatu, it’s a great cause and it’s where we surf 
in Bali"

About Eco Surf Rescue Uluwatu

Started by a group of expat surfers in Uluwatu, ESRU was formed when Bali based NGOs teamed up with the surf industry, local businesses and residents to address the pollution problems at Uluwatu. The ESRU mission is to work with locals to provide solid and liquid waste infrastructure that keeps Uluwatu clean and beautiful. We hope the world-famous surf break will one day become a pristine and healthy World Surf Heritage Area for 
the benefit of the Uluwatu community and future generations. Right now ESRU is working to keep the newly installed solid waste and recycling system running. Next, ESRU will install a professionally designed and environmentally friendly liquid waste system to finally solve the problem of leaking sewage and kitchen waste water.

Made Darmayasa Wins Open and Jessie Hong Wins Women’s Division at Rip Curl Pro Terengganu in Malaysia


3 December 2012, Terengganu-Malaysia: In a very closely contested battle for the ASC Men’s Open Division win, Bali’s Made Darmayasa narrowly trumped fellow Balinese pro Garut Widiarta to take the 6 star Rip Curl Pro Terengganu victory and his first ever ASC tour win yesterday.

Battling it out in a rainy and windy 20 minute final were four Indonesian surfers, two from Bali and two from West Java, going blow for blow in the smallish two-foot waves.  Garut Widiarta gained the lead early, smashing out first a 6.5 and then a 7.0 score for a 13.5 two wave total, seeming to have the final won, while the West Javanese brothers Sandi Selamat and Andre Julian and Made Darmayasa prowled the shifty lineup looking for big scores, but only getting average scores.  

Then at just after the mid point of the final Darmayasa found his rhythm and posted first a 6.0 and then a 7.5 point score to equal Widiarta’s 13.5 total.  The tension in the water and the beach was electric, as both surfers prowled the lineup looking for best wave with which to score 6.1 points or better in order to break the tie.  MC Ajill kept the surfers all posted on the remaining time as the minutes ticked by, also informing the crowd and the surfers that even though there was a tie score, Darmayasa would get the win as he had the highest single wave score of the final.  In the end it seemed that fate was on Darmayasa’s side, as the ocean failed to give up any more waves and the win was his.

“I feel so happy win this contest, so stoked,” said Darmayasa with his wide trademark grin.  “I was scared with Garut, Sandi, and Andre out there, as they all such good surfers, really dangerous!  I had to wait and wait to get a couple of good waves, and luckily I had a chance to do a couple of big maneuvers that got me some big scores.  I’m so lucky that Garut didn’t catch any more waves too!”

Darmayasa goes home with RM 6,000 (approximately $1,800 USD) and 3,000 Asian Surfing Championship points.
In the Women’s Open Division, it was Taiwan’s Jessie Hong who also won her first ever ASC tour victory.  “I really had a lot of fun out there and that makes this win really special,” she said.  “At the previous two ASC comps I think I tried too hard, and sometimes got nervous, which worked against me, so through this whole comp I just relaxed and tried to have fun. In the final I didn’t even pay attention to the scores or how I was doing, I just tried to find the good waves that I knew I could surf well.”  When asked about the waves conditions, she replied, “Usually I don’t surf beach breaks that well, but somehow here at Teregganu I found it easy and fun!”

The final day of the Rip Curl Pro Terengganu began in sunshine and glassy 2 foot waves, but as the day progressed the clouds gathered and the wind brought rain for the finals of the Bodyboard, Women’s, Longboard, Masters, and Men’s Open Divisions, but that didn’t dampen the enthusiasm of the competitors or the spectators that huddled under tents and cheered for their favorite surfers.

The Longboard Division was won by current and two time Indonesian and Asian longboard champion Arip “Mencos” Nurhidayat from West Java, who quickly combo’d the field with his aggressive and impulsive style in both traditional and progressive surfing to post the highest score of entire event, an 8.0 out of a possible 10, to lead from start to finish and come into the beach with the victory over Tipi Jabrik, Decha Sithidej, and Terengganu local Khairil Doje.

In the Master’s Division, ASC President Tipi Jabrik from Indonesia as the tour’s newest member of the 35 years of age and older club, nabbed his first Master’s victory and now has another trophy to find a place for on his already crowded shelf.

The Bodyboard Division was won by Ibrahim Shiman from the Maldives, which saw two Malaysians and two Maldivians battling it out for the victory.

Organizer and Contest Director Bryan Ng was delighted with the results of the event, saying, “Terengganu is quite new to surfing, so we’ve been working with the government to promote surfing in this area as it is one of the best places to surf in Malaysia.  It’s my third year doing an event here and I think we’re making great progress.  About 5 years ago when I came here there were about local 5 surfers…now there are about 50. And this weekend we had surfers from all over Asia coming here compete, so I’m really stoked.”

ASC Head Judge Arya Subyakto was also impressed.  “It was amazing how well the contestants performed all during the competition,” he said. “Even in some testing conditions especially during the low tide periods. I was particular impressed by Terengganu local Khairil Doje’s performance in the longboard division, from my view he has great potential and it was good to see that, given that  the surf community here is only a few years old.  It was also great to see the enthusiasm of the locals, coming to compete with the best surfers from around Asia, and to see such a big turnout on the beach each day from the spectators.  But I have to say it was a bit different to have so many people at the beach but so few bikini’s and boardshorts on the spectators!”

A total of 61 competitors signed up for Men’s Open Division; 39 Malaysian, 13 Indonesian, 1 each from the Maldives, Taiwan, Thailand, France, and England, and 1 from Singapore.

Of the 18 Women’s Division competitors, 12 were Malaysia, 3 from Indonesia, and 1 each from Taiwan, Thailand, and the USA.
The 15 Masters Division (35 years of age and older) competitors included 8 from Malaysia, 2 from Thailand, 2 from Japan, and 1 each from Indonesia, Holland, and Australia.

The Longboard Division had 14 competitors, 9 from Malaysia, 2 from Indonesia, 2 from Thailand, and 1 from Japan, and the Bodyboard Division had 26 competitors, 20 from Malaysia, 5 from the Maldives, and 1 from Japan. 

In conjunction with the government of Terengganu, Rip Curl Malaysia is proud to be the first surf brand in Malaysia to sponsor a 6-star rated ASC surfing competition with total prize money of 36,500 MYR (over $12,000 USD) across five surfing divisions; Men’s, Women’s, Longboard, Masters, and Bodyboard, plus a Skateboard Slalom Race and various specialty awards such as “Best Malaysian Surfer,” “Best Terengganu Local” and more.  In addition there was 22,500 MYR ($7,500 USD) worth of Rip Curl products given out to the finalists.

With big prize money and valuable ASC championship points on offer, the Rip Curl Pro Terengganu attracted the Asian region’s best professional surfers from Indonesia, Malaysia, Thailand, Taiwan, and the Maldives, as well as surfers from Japan, Singapore, England and France to compete over the weekend that was blessed by good contestable waves, lots of Fanta drinks and Nestle ice cream for all the spectators and competitors, sunscreen from Sunplay, surf lessons from the Rip Curl School of Surf,surfboard shaping demonstration's by world re-known shaper Darren Handley, and surboard painting by Laura Pabst de Cesar. Check out the video clips below to see what went down over the action packed three days.

Competitors Locked In For Upcoming Oakley ASP World Junior Championships Bali
KERAMAS, Bali/Indonesia (Wednesday, September 26, 2012) – The Association of Surfing Professionals (ASP) 2012 Men's and Women's World Junior Champions will be decided next month at the Oakley ASP World Junior Championships Bali. The ASP's seven regions including: Australasia, Africa, Hawaii, Europe, Japan, North America and South America have used their respective Pro Junior series' to determine their regional representatives at the event who will now battle it out to be the first ASP World Champions crowned in Indonesia.
Andrew Doheny (USA) finished runner-up at this event in Bali last year and will be looking to use his exciting brand of surfing to push for another solid result next month.
"Last year's event was a good experience," Doheny said. "The waves were really fun and I had a great time, doing well in the contest made the trip that much better. I'm really exited to go back and try my best in the contest and get some good surf. I like going to Bali it's always fun times there."
Maxime Huscenot (FRA), 2009 ASP World Junior Champion, will be competing as a junior for the last time at the Oakley ASP World Junior Championships Bali. Husenot's smooth style and competitive experience will see him enter the event as one of the favourites to take it out. 
"I'm feeling good and have good boards at the moment," Huscenot said. "I've been working hard lately, I've trained physically since last year and I have a good rhythm going. This is my last opportunity as a junior so I'm going to Bali with hopes of clinching the World Title! I know the wave pretty well and it is very similar to my home wave in Reunion Island."
Rosanny Alvarez (VEN) will be the first surfer from Venezuela to compete at the ASP World Junior Championships after she claimed the prestigious ASP South America Pro Junior title. 
"I am very excited to have secured the ASP South American Junior Title, that is unheard of for my country," said Alvarez. "Here in Venezuela we do not have much support for travel and to compete, but the president of the Venezuelan Federation of Surf is seeking sponsorship for me to represent my country for the first time in the Oakley ASP World Junior Championships and I believe everything will be okay. Already I am counting the days traveling to Bali!"
Matt Banting (AUS), the 18-year-old from Port Macquarie, Australia has had a breakthrough year in 2012. Banting started the year with a bang, winning both the Pro Junior and the men's divisions at the prestigious Australian Open Of Surfing and now sits at a very respectable 65th on the ASP Men's World Rankings. 
"I watched the World Juniors at Narrabeen for years when I was a grom," Banting said. "I watched guys like Adriano De Souza and Jordy Smith in the finals and it's always been a goal to win one myself. Bali is a great venue! It has a wide variety of waves, great food, great people and the water is warm. My preparation has been good as I've just come off the Europe World Tour leg. It's good to get home, tweak a few things and reset for Bali."
Nao Omura (JPN) who finished equal 5th at last year's Oakley ASP World Junior Championships is looking forward to returning to Bali and competing on the world stage.
"I'm so happy and excited to be in the Oakley ASP World Junior Championships again!" Omura said. "The waves in Bali are always fun, with both barrels and rippable waves. I've been following the ASP Star events because my home doesn't have much waves, and I'm training hard at home for the competition." 
The Oakley ASP World Junior Championships Bali will run from October 6 – 17. For LIVE webcast and event videos and more check www.oakleyprojunior.com
