The Oakley Pro Bali

Monday, 11 February 2013

Oakley announced late last night that this year there will be a new stop on the tour, the Oakley Pro Bali, the first CT in Bali since 2008. To be held from June 18th till the 29th at the high peroformance right hander, Keramas. If conditions don't cooperate the event can be moved to Canggu as a backup location. 

“Keramas, to me, is the most high-performance wave on the planet,” Jordy Smith said. “Oakley have had their world junior event there for a few years and I’m glued to the computer every time it’s on. To have the Top 34 there, I don’t know how the judges will be able to judge it, the performances are going to be next level. This is really exciting.”

After watching this video you might want to start looking for cheap flights because this looks like a contest you won't want to miss. If you can't make it over, you'll be able to watch all the live action here.
