23 November, 2023 – Kuta, Bali: It was a long and challenging day for the competitors on Day 2 of the AMMAN Liga Surfing Indonesia Grand Final 2023 presented by BINTANG Crystal, as Mother Nature tested the competitor’s ability to find good scores in the small wave conditions and to keep their cool in the hot temperatures in between their heats.
Due to the large number of competitors in the Juniors, Open Men’s, Open Women’s and Masters Divisions, it was necessary to have two surfing locations and two sets of judges on Day 2 in order to be able to finish the competition by tomorrow afternoon Day 3, and the blasting heat waves challenged the judging panels and the organizers as well, who started off at 7 am and ended at just before 6 pm, completing 60 heats.
Tomorrow will see the completion of the event, and to see the schedule and the results of today’s action you can find it all here on Live Heats at https://liveheats.com/events/183301
