Date: November (TBA)
Location: Balian Beach, West Bali
This is one wacky surf event to witness while in Bali. This year’s would be the sixth time the annual Russian surfing festival unfolds, with participants (mostly Russian), hitting the waves in various costumes as one of the festival’s highlights. Then, the real board-riding competitions begin, including short board and long board categories. Last year’s event saw winners receiving gifts and prizes such as jewellery, surf gear and surf trips to neighbouring islands. Last year, Hilton Worldwide as sponsor announced the prize for SurfJam 2016 as SGD 50,000.
