Bali’s Big Eco Weekend: Open Lineups at the Uluwatu Surf Challenge

Both surfers and non-surfers alike know this iconic surf break. Affectionately referred to as ‘Ulu’s’…the waves here are some of the best in the world. Bali Big Eco Weekend-Uluwatu Challenge The Uluwatu Challenge was introduced into the Bali’s Big Eco Weekend two years ago, with Quiksilver and the Uluwatu Boardriders Club joining forces to raise money for environmental and beach clean-up programs in Bali. For  a $180 entry fee, 32 lucky surfers paddled out and competed against Roxy team riders Bruna Schmitz, Rosy Hodge, 2x World Longboarding Champ Kelia Moniz along with Quiksilver legends Mark Richards, Matt Hoy, Jake Paterson, Craig Anderson and current World Tour surfer Freddy Patacchia. This was the first time in the event’s history that members of the Roxy team had competed. Ready to have some fun and put on a good show, Rosy, Kelia and Bruna suited up (and by that, we mean bikinis)! Blessed with pristine conditions, the anticipation to surf the uncrowded breaks was electric! Rosy headed out in one of the first heats of the day and soaked up the rare combination of great swell and the choice of any wave she wanted. Bali Big Eco Weekend-Uluwatu Challenge Bruna ripped! Clearly having heaps of fun, she gave the crowd plenty to cheer about throughout the day.

Quickly becoming crowd favorites, Kelia and Bruna took it up a notch in their second heat and jumped on a wave together.

She grabbed a few more long lefts before the sun melted over the Indian Ocean.

Quiksilver surfing legends gave the highlights of their day to the Roxy team, sharing the stoke of a great day in the water, and excited for the prospect of next year’s competition!
