About The Rip Curl Cup Padang Padang
Now in its ninth year, the Rip Curl Cup Invitational at Padang Padang is Indonesia's longest-running surfing competition and the only ISC tour event featuring top international surfers alongside Indonesia's best.

The field of 32 surfers is split equally between 16 of Indonesia’s all-time greatest and 16 of the world's best barrel riders. This invitational format, along with the allure of the wave at Padang and a $10,000 prize purse, makes the Rip Curl Cup the most anticipated event of the Indonesian surf season.

For 2012, Rip Curl has extended the event waiting period to a grand total of six weeks to ensure catching an epic swell for the “one-day, one-swell" event. This year's window will run from July 15th through Aug. 26th and the contest will be run entirely on the chosen day. When contest directors see an ideal "Padang swell" in the forecast, they will give the green light and the 32 competitors will have 24 hours to make it to Bali’s Bukit Peninsula.
The Cup
The trophy was designed by local Balinese artists at MOD Jewelry, makers of past Association of Surfing Professionals championship rings and awards. It was entirely hand-carved from teak wood and inlayed with silver.

The bowl is carved into the shape of a flower and is mounted above wood made to look like a craggy chunk of Padang reef. Each year the cup is filled with Bintang and the winner must wash it all down on the victory podium.

In the tradition of all great sporting prizes, the winner’s name is permanently inscribed on the trophy. Each winner receives his own version of the trophy, but the original Cup remains at Rip Curl headquarters in Bali for all to behold.
