LiveHeats Contest Management
Fees for the 2021 season have been generously paid by Boardriders (Quiksilver/Billabong) and Rip Curl based here in Bali in support of the development and progression of the Indonesian surf community, as this great program allows fans, surfers, and management to view and track the event activity both while the event is on and to view historical data after the event.
