Passion Comes in Waves


The third and final event of the Billabong Grommet Attack 2015 Series finished up on Sunday, 19 July 2015, at Halfway, Kuta Beach, in an exciting showcase of Bali’s best up-and-coming junior surfers. After an amazing run at Padma Beach with great wave selections, the series’ good karma continued with Kuta Beach delivering superb lefts and rights in classic Halfway form. With glassy peeling waves pumping in as if a wave machine produced it, a proud Rahtu Suargita boasted on the microphone “this is Halfway at its best! Thank you Mother Nature for sending us such perfect swell direction!”. The highly competitive Under 16 Boys division was won by Rio Waida, who having missed the Padma event due to being in Australia competing in the Occy Grom Comp was determined to get one over on his buddy Raju Sena who had won both of the previous events – and he did! However, Raju Sena still came home with the Under 16 Boys series championship trophy, lots of goodies, and a smile on his face! Billabong Boss Chris Slattery, commented, “Today was absolutely unreal! Everyone had a great time and that’s exactly how we wanted this event to be.” All the event finalists received goody bags, trophies and IDR3,000,000 gift certificates from Billabong and FCS and a voucher for a 2-night stay at Hotel Neo+ in Kuta-Legian.
