Rip Curl Gromsearch at Padma Beach
Kuta: After three successful years at the long cobblestone right point break of Medewi, the Rip Curl GromSearch will return to Padma Beach in Kuta for the Bali leg of the 2012 Rip Curl GromSearch Series on Sunday, June 10.
After scoring incredible – and sometimes heavy – waves and discovering a whole new pack of dedicated groms at the first two GromSearch events of the season in Pacitan, Java and Lakey Peak, Sumbawa, the Rip Curl crew brings the fun to Bali for stop No. 3 of the 2012 Rip Curl Southeast Asia GromSearch Series.
The youngsters will be surfing in the footsteps of some amazing surfers who have emerged from Padma’s storied sandbars, including Bali surfing legend Made Kasim, original member of the Black Shorts surf crew Ketut Jarut, and brothers Darmaputra and Darmayasa Tonjo.
“Padma is such a good wave for developing your surfing,” Rip Curl team rider Darmaputra Tonjo said. “It can be all types of a wave: left, right, barrel, air section. I’m excited to see how the best grom surfers in Bali perform at my home break on Sunday.”
