Gerry Lopez first surfed Uluwatu in 1974. The fabled Balinese wave was pristine, magical, and empty. Gerry returned to Uluwatu 40 years later to find it bustling, developed, and a different scene. After a week of surfing and yoga, however, Gerry tapped into a spirit of place that continues to endure. Obviously change is inevitable, but nevertheless he was shocked to see the environment is endangered by tourism and illegal development.
His message is simple: We need to face the changes and guide them in the right direction in order to protect the beautiful place that surfers have long come to in search of perfect waves and Balinese culture.
