8 May 2019, Bali – Indonesia: REnextop Entertainment together with the Asian Surf Cooperative (ASC) and the Padma Boys are excited to announce that Padma Beach in Legian will be the first stop of the third season of the REnextop Asian Surfing Tour (RAST), China’s first and only international surfing series?which will see an exciting field of both shortboard and longboard surfers coming to Bali to compete in RAST #1 from 19-22 June, 2019.
The RAST Tour for 2019 will now embark on its 3rd year of surfing and traveling around Asia, embracing the passion and stoke of surfing, together with the adventure of traveling to new places and making new friends.
Last year saw the RAST 2018 series starting off in Bali at Kuta Beach for RAST #1 before heading to Patong Beach in Thailand for RAST #2, then finishing up in Cherating, Malaysia for RAST #3, crowning both event and series champions for an exciting conclusion to the second year of RAST series. The 2018 RAST Tour was a great success, with all of the participants gaining a lot of new experience from traveling to different countries and surfing different waves.
This year will see the series start again in Bali, but this time just north from Kuta Beach at Padma Beach, which will provide another quality beach break for the shortboard and longboard competitors joining the RAST tour.

Men’s Shortboard = 48
Men’s Longboard = 24
Women’s Shortboard = 24

New for this year is FREE REGISTRATION at the Padma, Bali event for any surfer who competed in all three RAST events last year!
