Rip Curl Cup Trials

Rip Curl Cup Padang-Padang Trials
Padang Padang, Bali Indonesia
14th to 30th June, 2013

The Indian Ocean is nothing but purple and red

Surfersvillage Global Surf News, 26 June, 2014 - The much anticipated swell of last week failed to meet Rip Curl standards, putting the Trials for the 2014 Rip Curl Cup on hold until this week. As of today the forecasted swell looks much more than promising for tomorrow, Friday the 27th, with a massive swell approaching and good tides, a great combination for this Trials event. 

According to Surfline, the official swell forecaster for the Rip Curl Cup : " It's time to dust off that step-up, the Indian Ocean is nothing but purple and red. - Long period swell is expected to fill in across Indonesia over the second half of the week and continue into the weekend".  

The massive swell is predicted to start unloading some perfect 8 - 10 feet barrels onto the Padang-Padang reef on Friday morning the 27th, where the 24 amped surfers will be on standby at 6:00 am waiting for the green light that signals the start of the Rip Curl Cup 2014 Trials.
