Harrison Roach won the Deus 9ft and Single 2016 event with a spectacular longboarding display on perfect Canggu right handers – with a cleared lineup.
From Deus ex Machina
The Deus ex Machina 9ft and Single event for 2014 was held at the Canggu / Pererenan river mouth right hand break featuring some World class longboarders and a bunch of local ex-pats.
The competitors all rode 60’s inspired single fins and showed how much style they all had with beautiful take-off’s, tubes, long arching bottom turns and styling cut-backs.
This year Devon Howard took the winner’s trophy and won for himself a custom Thomas X Deus 9’6 board.
Here are 4 of our all-time favourite surfing spots in Bali.
Impossibles (Intermediate – Advanced)
Overlooked by cliff-top hotels and Bali villas, this place is known for its speed, Impossibles gets its name because it is almost impossible to get around the sections during smaller swells. The beauty about Impossibles is that it is such a huge stretch of reef that there are a few different launching spots, meaning that it virtually never gets crowded. On a good day this wave is known to be long and fast, reaching heights of 5ft and over. If its peace, solitude and a long ride that you seek then the Impossibles should be on your hit list.
The Drifter Surf Shop is one of my favourite shops in Bali. Whether you are looking for a Dick Van Stralen quad or a Channel Islands board, maybe an ultra-cool Patagonia backpack, Speargun or GoPro, Drifter has a wide and interesting array of surf and water related products set in an ultra cool, retro space in the heart of Seminyak.
Surrounded by hotels , restaurants and uber-cool villas it features eclectic fashion brands that you won’t find at most surf stores in Bali, shelves of hand-selected books and collected memorabilia including a large selection of artwork, photography and memorabilia all available for purchase.
