Competition Heats Up on Day 3 of Oakley Pro 2010 at Canggu  |  Indonesian below

Surfersvillage Global Surf News, 3 April, 2010 : - - Canggu -- Bali -- As anticipated, the heat was on and the competition fierce through the remainder of the Round 3 heats that were run at Canggu today.  Though the waves and weather conditions were not stellar by any means, the lack of waves quality was not an impediment but actually seemed to stoke up the competitive fire as the morning progressed.

First out in the 2-3 foot and glassy waves under the threat of rain 2008 Coca-Cola ISC Champion and current WQS surfer Dede Suryana, going head to head with last years Oakley Pro winner Mustofa Jeksen. 

Suryana took the early lead with the first wave of the heat, but relinquished it to a charging Jeksen by mid heat.  With the end of the heat approaching and needing a score of 6.5 for the lead, Suryana picked on the best set wave of the heat and posted a 7.5 to finish in first place. 

Said Suryana back on the beach with a relieved smile, “Wow, I feel so lucky to have gotten that set wave.  There were not that many coming through, and if Mus got it I would still be in second place with Kopling chasing me.  If Kopling got it I probably would’ve been bumped into third place and out of the comp. So happy for that wave!”

Suryana will meet Garut Widiarta and Jeksen will meet Agus Frimanto in the man-on-man Round 4 tomorrow.

In Heat 4, last year’s runner-up Dedi Santoso also had a nail biter, finally snagging a wave at the 5 minute mark that put him up in second place knocking off Ketut Sudarsana.  Komang “Gogo” Sujaya got off to a blazing start with a 5.0 then added a 6.0 to lead from the start and finish in first place. Santoso came to the beach giving himself the CPR chest beating, saying, “I’m so lucky,…I’m so lucky”, with a big grin on his face.

In the underdog category, the Nusa Lembongan duo of Tia Nustawan and Agus Frimanto did their island proud today, both surfing aggressively to Round 4 berths.  18-year-old Nustawan narrowly pushed Mega Semadhi out of a Round 4 berth by snagging a buzzer-beating wave that scored him just enough to put him in second place.  He joined the on-fire Raditya Rondi in advancing to Round 4.

16-year-old Frimanto had the magic touch going in his heat against senior surfers Made Artha, Made Awan, and Rahtu Suargita.  Leading from the start, he ripped apart wave after wave to end the heat with a total score of 12.25 over second place finisher Made Awan’s total of 10.0.

High wave score of the day goes to Wayan Suprayitna, who posted a 7.9 in the final heat of Round 3 to win the heat, nabbing the only barrel of the morning, carving a big cutback, then chalking up a few more turns on the inside to end up on the sand. Garut Widiarta took second in the same heat by taking every wave that came his way, but coming dangerously close to being nudged out by a charging Agus Purnawan in the final seconds.

According to the swell forecasts, the waves should be picking up through today and giving some great conditions for tomorrow’s Round 4 action. The competitors and crew will be standing by at 7:00 am for a possible 7:30 start.  Come on out and spend your Sunday enjoying the best surfers in Indonesia going ballistic on some of the best waves in Bali!

Kompetisi Memanas di Hari ketiga Oakley Pro 2010

Surfersvillage Global Surf News, 3 April, 2010 : - - Canggu -- Bali -- Seperti yang telah diprediksi sebelumnya, panasnya kompetisi langsung terasa saat dimulainya kontes di hari ke tiga ini. Meskipun cuaca dan kondisi tidak se sempurna hari petama, namun tidak menyurutkan semangat para peserta.

Surfer yang mencicipi ombak sebesar 2-3ft di awal kompetisi adalah juara ISC 2008 dan WQS surfer Dede Suryana yang berhadapan langsung dengan juara Oakley Pro tahun kemarin: Mustofa Jeksen. Ombak pertama membawa Dede Suryana memimpin heat namun sempat terampas  sesaat oleh Mustofa. Pada akhir heat, Dede Suryana mengambil ombak yang memberinya point 7.5 dan kembali meraih posisi pertama di heat.

“Sungguh beruntung saya dapat ombak tadi, jika saja Mustofa yang dapat, saya akan tetap di posisi dua, dan kalau saja Kopling yang mendapat ombak itu, maka pasti saya yang akan terlempar keluar kompetisi, senang banget dapat ombak tadi” ujar Dede

Dede Suryana akan menghadapi Garut dan Mustofa akan bertemu Augs Frimanto di dalam man-on-man round 4 besok.

Di heat 4, runner up tahun kemarin Dedi Santoso juga mengalami heat yang mendebarkan, 5 menit akan berakhirnya heat dia mendapat ombak yang menempatkan dirinya di posisi dua, mengalahkan Ketut Sudarsana. Komang “Gogo’ Sujaya memulai heatnya dengan kencang, score 5.5 dan menambahkan 6.0 yang memimpin sampai akhir heatnya di posisi pertama.

Pada kategori kuda hitam, duo asal Nusa Lembongan, Tia Nustawan dan Agus Frimanto tampil membanggakan hari ini, keduanya tampil agresif. Tia Nustawan secara mengejutkan berhasil menumbangkan Mega Semadhi keluar dari round 4, dimana dia akan bergabung dengan Raditya Rondi melaju ke round berikutnya.

Kejutan berikutnya datang dari Frimanto, dimana langsung memimpin dari awal dan berhasil mendepak seniornya: Made Artha juga Rahtu Suargitha dan memberi posisi kedua pada Made Awan dengan score 10.0

Nilai tertinggi di hari ini diraih oleh Wayan Suprayitna yang mengantongi point 7.9 di heat final round ke 3, dengan sebuah barrel riding yang diikuti dengan cutback besar dan beberapa trick susulan sampai ke tepi pantai. Garut Widiarta menduduki posisi kedua yang merobek setiap ombak yang datang dan berhasil menyikut keluar Agus Purnawan

Menurut prediksi swell, ombak seharusnya datang hari ini yang diharapkan akan memuncak indah besok di pebukaan round 4. Kompetitor dan crew akan stand by jam 7 untuk kemungkinan start jam 7.30. Habiskan hari Minggu kalian dengan menjadi saksi surfer terbaik Indonesia menunjukkan kemampuannya
