Rip Curl's James Hendy was all smiles during the awards presentation at the end of the day, saying, "I'm relieved and thrilled at the same time. This was such an amazing conclusion to an incredible day of competition. There were some ups and downs during the day, which just added to the drama and excitement, but the final was better than we ever could have imagined. After waiting for 24 months, and basically 4 weeks now in this 5-week waiting period, it's such a great feeling to end up with such a memorable final. "
In addition to having his name inscribed on the perpetual Rip Curl Cup Trophy and getting his Rp 50 million in cash, Lee Wilson also received a brand new Kawasaki 150 D-Tracker motorcycle from Kawasaki Indonesia for being the top local surfer in the Rip Curl Cup. After receiving the award Wilson said "I just bought a new Kawasaki a few months ago, so now I have two! So I 'm going to give my old one to Bol, because he really deserves something for surfing so good today. "
