Padang Padang Rip Curl Invitational 2011

“Murphy’s law held true and after winning every other heat of the day, and even posting a perfect 10 in the final, Bol’s efforts weren’t enough to claim his third title at Padang.”

Today it was ON. Finally. I caught the final to see Lee Wilson and Made ‘Bol’ Putra duke it out in what was their fourth heat together of the day.

Bol had taken all the previous heats, with Lee tailing in a solid second place, ousting top level contenders along the way.

Lee’s aerials make him one of Bali’s most exciting surfers and today he showed that he can hold his own in pumping barrels as well.

Massive congrats to Lee and let’s make sure this win propels his career further into flight.
