When you’re surfing in Indo you have to pay to play. No one knows this better than Garut Widiarta. From gaping Greenbush to sucking-dry Speedies, Garut has gotten up close and personal with the sharpest, nastiest, shallowest reef passes Indo has to offer.
Now Garut wants to see what your worst run-in with the reef looks like. Think you’ve had a heavy reef grating? Balibelly.tv and Rip Curl are giving you the opportunity to see how your most harrowing encounter with the reef stacks up. Enter a photo of your worst reef rash into the Ultimate Reef Rash Giveaway and you could win a killer prize pack from Rip Curl, in addition to lifetime bragging rights.
Entering is as easy as 1, 2, 3. Here’s how it works:
1. “Like” the Rip Curl Facebook page > HERE <
2. “Like” the Balibelly.tv Facebook page > HERE <
3. Post your reef gash photo onto the Balibelly.tv Facebook wall. Include a short description of how you got your tattoos, including where you were surfing, how the waves were, and of course how things went so terribly wrong.
That’s it, you’re done! The best (worst) reef rash photo and story combo wins the loot – and everyone’s respect.
The top five nastiest photos will be featured on Balibelly.tv and the winner will be chosen by Garut himself. First place takes home the Ultimate Rip Curl Reef Rash Prizepack, including a new E-Bomb Pro wetsuit top and a pair of Mirage Covert boardies. We’ll also throw in a bottle of Chinese medicine and a fresh bag of limes. You’ll be ready to tow into 20-foot Outside Corner on an inflatable killer whale.
Don’t get cute and send us a fake photo that isn’t you. We will be asking to see evidence of some serious battle scars before bestowing the title of Worst Reef Rash. So dig up those old glory photos from that last trip to your favorite below-sea-level barrel and post ‘em up. Don’t be shy. Remember: chicks dig scars.
