A steady stream of almost 97 kids began jumping off motor bikes and piling out of cars frothing to first check the waves and then the heat board at Volcom’s first Totally Crustaceous Tour event of 2015, the Geckofish Sanur at Lembeng Beach. And yes the waves were absolutely pumping, with glassy 3-4 foot rights and lefts peeling down the reef just begging to be ripped apart.
In the time-honored Volcom tradition of Letting the Kids Ride Free, this Geckofish event attracted not only the East Coast of Bali’s best kids but also kids from Nusa Lembongan, Lombok, Canggu, Kuta, Uluwatu and even Taiwan and Brazil! With no entry fee, free lunch, games, and prizes to the finalists and two custom surfboards up for grabs, it’s no wonder the event was full to the gills with groms. Event Director Ribut Wahyudi: “This is crazy, I closed the registration a month ago with about 60 kids, and now look…but I can’t turn all these other kids away can I?”
