The men’s 9’ & Single Longboard division… yeeww! What a cracker it was. After a wild start to the event, conditions cleaned up for the final day of this world-renowned longboarding competition. Tyler, Harrison, Thomas and Zye hit the water in bombing and clean Pererenan River Mouth perfection.
Never before considered a longboard wave and rarely ridden by longboarders thanks to the small and competitive line-up, it was a pleasure to watch these four surfers show that heavy single fins aren’t limited to shoulder high surf.
The final started with Harrison riding a bomb from out the back all the way onto the sand. Spectators cheered as he attempted to run off his board and up the beach before tripping and landing flat on his back. From then on it was 30 minutes of non-stop surf, with every competitor riding a handful of over-head waves.
This event reached a new peak in 2015 and every single beachgoer was entertained with world-class longboarding of the like that has previously only been seen on film.
Welcome to the second annual Ladies Log Fest at the Deus 9’ & Single. The Canggu right-hander looked so damn classy with the ladies in the water. The ladies division was a highlight during our event. They shared more waves and stoke than any of the other competitors and though we finished with a winner, the event never once seemed like competition.
The festival of the shore pound has once again proved itself as an awesome and exciting celebration of horizontal surfing. Wompers left their boards at home and dove into the water at Canggu’s river mouth to fulfil their own swim fin fantasies.
The Right proved somewhat difficult for most entrants but through the pack shone a handful of talented trimmers. Competitors lifted and drifted and spun for fun, with Luke Flanders, Fraser Biden, Todd Supertramp and Harrison Roach ultimately making the final.
Busting down the door for our 2nd Under 9’ & Single! In this division at the 9‘ Festival surfers were able to ride anything under 9’ with a single fin. Unsuprisingly the majority of the contestants opted for 70’s style shortboards.
Thrown together in two piles of ten for a half hour each, it was more of an expression session than a contest but waves were judged and finalists were made. In the last 30 minutes of the 5th Annual Deus 9’ & Single Festival, 8 single fin shortboarders traded off perfect waves. Each surfer rode a wave on one set alone… 8 waves for 8 surfers in one set! We couldn’t have asked for more.
