Oney Anwar born August 17th in the surf-drenched jungles of Lakey Peak, Sumbawa, has been charging through his career ever since he first stood up on a surfboard. Growing up at Lakey Peak and surfing mental waves on an everyday basis, Oney has had the opportunity to develop an incredible style. When Oney first joined the Rip Curl team in 2003 he was already looking to become a world class surfer at the age of 10. Oney has been living in Queensland since 2007 as part of Rip Curls International Grom development program, surfing and competing in the Palm Beach Boardriding Club. Oney created history in August 2009 becoming the first Indonesian surfer to win a major ASP Pro Junior event taking out the Dripping Wet Pro Junior in Sydney.

Oneys favourite board for contests is the Bombay Blues model 5’10 x 18 3/8 x 2 1/8 with a round tail. “It has the best speed and good for small and big waves. Its really light which makes it so good for airs. Out of all the boards I have ridden this year, the Bombay Blues definitely goes the best.” Another favourite is the Vertrix 5’9 x 18 1/2 x 2 3/16 rounded squash, which goes sick at Snapper and Lakeys.
