RETURN OF THE CUP After a one-year hiatus, 2011 saw the return of the Rip Curl Cup, once again held in epic barrels at Padang Padang. Indonesia’s Lee Wilson won his second Rip Curl Cup by defeating one of the most talented fields in event history, including the likes of Chris Ward (California), Makua Rothman (Hawaii), Anthony Walsh (Australia), and Dean Morrison (Australia). With his second Padang Cup title, Wilson claimed the Cup back for Indonesia from reigning champion Jamie O’Brien of Hawaii. Among the 16 international surfers confirmed to compete in 2012 are Jamie O’Brien (Hawaii), Dean Brady (Australia), and Bruno Santos (Brazil). Indonesia will be represented by two-time Rip Curl Cup champion Made “Bol” Adi Putra, Rizal Tanjung, Marlon Gerber, Garut Widiarta, Dede Suryana and defending champ Lee Wilson, among others. Wildcards include: Kevin Bourez (Tahiti), Rip Curl Raglan Pro winner Bobby Hansen (New Zealand), and Rip Curl International GromSearch champ Dylan Lightfoot (South Africa).
