Check out this interview of Damien Hobgood on the Padang Cup. He got a few boards shaped by Matt Biolos for this event and both Biolos and Damien take you through the type of boards shaped for the waves in Bali (around the 7 minute mark). Also there are some insights of Damien’s past experiences with Chris Ward’s competition tactics and Mason Ho’s chance of success in the event. The Padang Cup’s waiting period is from August 1st to Aug 31st so keep an eye out for a swell big enough to run the event.
