DEUS 9 FOOT AND SINGLE: Day 1 Fish Fry Roundup
Its here folks: the 7th annual Deus 9ft and Single Surf Music and Art Festival in Bali, and this year SurfStitch are proud sponsors! The festivities kicked off yesterday with the inaugural ‘Deus Fish Fry Comp’ down at The Lawn at Batu Bolong. The sun peaked its head over the horizon to reveal a little windy, but fun conditions, putting smiles across the competitors’ faces in the post dawn light. This was a contest centred around and celebrating the Fish surfboard and all those who love it, and it turns out there’s plenty of us!
With contestants from Australia, Japan, America, New Zealand and Indonesia, it truly was an international lineup of surfers all rubbing shoulders down at the local left hander. Battling it out through the day with smiles on their faces, the real standouts were local Canggu surf community boys Ayok, Jun and Sodok along with the grom Tom Morat. Once the free beers started flowing in the late morning the cheers from the crowd could be heard from the back yard at Deus Temple, spurring those in the water on until finally there were four…but we can’t let you know who won, for all will be revealed at Sunday night’s Wrap Up Party.
Today sees the action move to Pererenan beach for the Womp Comp – if you’re in Bali head down now to make the most of the day! For everyone else, stay tuned for tomorrow’s update of the guys and gals tackling the lineup on their bellies, and check out the Fish Fry pics below in the meantime!
