Local surfer Mega Semadhi wins the 10th Rip Curl Padang Padang Cup in Bali on day 42 of the 45 day waiting period. He got a perfect ten in his semi-final heat and a 9.7 in the final. Jacob Wilcox of Australia came second ahead of Raditya Rondi and Alik Rudiarta.

As the waiting period for the Rip Curl Padang Padang cup starts nearing its end I’m really hoping they get a solid swell like this one to light up the reef.

Used-to-be-secret-spot Keramas is where we’ll get to see the world’s best surfers surf the world’s most rippable right hander in a few hours as the Oakley Pro Bali kicks hopefully kicks off in surf like this.
