It's on when It's on... Takayuki Wakita won the Trials of the 2011 Rip Curl Cup, held in four-to-five foot Padang barrels on Wednesday. The Japanese surfer has earned himself a spot in the main event, to be held on the biggest and best day of the year at Padang this season. Also qualifying were: Hawaii's Makua Rothman and Bali local Rahtu Suargita, who finished second and third respectively. Rounding out the six-man Trials heat were Makua's younger brother, Koa Rothman (Haw), Dedi Gun (Bali) and Tipi Jabrik (Bali).
