Padang Padang 2019

The Rip Curl Cup Padang Padang is an invite-only tuberiding contest, giving 16 of the surfing world’s most talented underground chargers an opportunity to compete in an empty lineup at the famous Padang Padang reef.

For one month of each year, during optimum swell period for the region, eight international surfers and eight of the top local Indonesian surfers descent on the Bukit Peninsula and wait for the green light.

Event directors for the Rip Curl Cup will only call the event ON and give it the green light if the Indian Ocean offers up the perfect swell – ensuring that when The Cup is called ON surfers will put on a show in double-overhead, sensational surf.

The event waiting period in 2019 is throughout the month of July… and as the saying goes, “It’s ON when it’s ON!”
