Good Vibrations retro Classic - Canggu Beach Bali

"In a celebration of all things classic in surfing, the second annual Good Vibrations Retro Classic surf competition will take over Canggu Beach in Bali on Saturday, August 25 for a great day of surfing with old and new friends, music and entertainment, environmental awareness programs and beach cleanups, surfboard demo’s, and more. A field of 48 surfers will be joining this 2nd annual event at arguably Bali’s most popular wave playground of Canggu Beach, their primary objective to impress the judging panel and the crown on the beach with their ability to master the single fin style surfboard. The surfers are only allowed to use either old classic boards or new versions of the old classics in the competition; the only stringent requirement is that the board must have no more than one fin. The one-day competition organized and sponsored by Drifter Surf Shop, Mantra, and Insight Indonesia will culminate in a 6-man final, where each finalist will receive their own new single fin surfboard just for making it to the final. Up for grabs are two classic “Morning of the Earth” style boards, two pintail “Gerry Lopez” style boards, and two wingtip pintail boards. The overall winner gets his or her name on the perpetual Good Vibrations trophy that will be housed alternately in The Drifter Surf, Mantra, and at Insight. There will also be awards for the biggest drop, deepest barrel, most stylish turn, biggest wipeout, and any other crazy maneuvers that may manifest themselves during this day of retro expression.... ....And with legends like Terry Fitzgerald, Mitchell Rae, and the “Drifter” himself Rob Machado coming, it promises to be one heckuva highlight in Bali’s 2012 surf season" Good Vibrations
