Putra Hermawan: the Indonesian champ

When a national champion is crowned in the last seconds of surfing contest you're witnessing a breathtaking moment.

It happened in Asia. The 2010 Indonesia Pro Surfing Tour reached its climax in the Rip Curl Surf and Music Festival, held at Kuta Beach’s famous "Halfways".

Dedi Santosa was trying to beat Marlon Gerber and needed an 8.65-point wave to claim the 2010 Coca-Cola ISC Tour. But Santosa missed the score in the last 30 seconds of the final heat and delivered the championship to Putra Hermawan.

18-year-old Putra Hermawan is the youngest ever ISC Tour Open Division champion. Marlon Gerber, the event winner, dedicated his first ISC tour win to his friend Andy Irons who tragically passed away recently.

Husni won the Longboard Division for the second time, Dyah Rahayu Dewi took her second win in a row in the Women’s Division and Jeren Kiring claimed the National GromSearch Final.
