Usually waiting for a swell is a tedious thing, but during the Rip Curl Cup Padang Padang the waiting period is grand old time. Between small days on the Kuta beaches and the medium days at Bingin, there's enough waves to keep yourself preoccupied. Today, we awoke to a new, bigger swell breaking perfectly directly in front of the Rip Curl Team Villa.
Wave of the day went to Tai Graham but this one of Kevin Bourez' wasn't too bad either.
The whole session was live streamed via SL TV and we'll have a highlights clip up later tonight. If you can't wait and have two hours to spare you can watch the session from start to finish, here.
