RUSTY is proud to present the 7th annual Rumble In Da Jungle surfing competition to be held at Sanur’s legendary Bangsal Beach over a waiting period spanning from April 26th until May 16th, 2010.
The seething barrels of Sanur Reef will certainly make for a death-or-glory affair for those ready to charge the treacherous inside section which explodes over a table of razor-sharp fire corals.
Contest director Kane Faint has high hopes for Rusty Indonesia’s premier event.
“Although Sanur has a reputation of being notoriously fickle, we have a three-week window for everything to come together. Last year we scored great waves at both Sanur Reef and our backup location ‘in da jungle’, so fingers crossed this year will be just as insane.”
As the second stop on the Coca-Cola Indonesian Surfing Championship (ISC) tour, this six-star rated event has a prize pool of Rp 45,000,000 up for grabs - but equally important is the opportunity for the surfers to build on their championship points and get a jump on their peers in the rankings.
Fresh off a win at the ISC season opener at Canggu, Rusty team rider Made Awan is confident that he can carry his good form into this competition.
“Sanur is one of my favorite waves; it’s long, fast, and grows as it hits the reef. I feel comfortable out there and my boards are going great, so I can’t wait!”
Sabre eyewear will also reward the surfer who rides the ‘Best Barrel’ during the event with a Rp 2,000,000 prize.
The Rusty Rumble In Da Jungle is supported by Sabre, San Mig Light, Surf Time, Magic Wave, Lines, and GUS.
