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 will endure.

Uluwatu has been a holy place for the Balinese for centuries, and since the early ‘70s has become an iconic location for surfers. It was revealed to the surfing world in the classic 1972 film Morning of the Earth. Two years later, world famous surf pioneer Gerry Lopez surfed the wave and launched Ulu's into the mainstream spotlight. Its booming popularity however has placed huge development pressure on the area, and with no environmental controls in place, hard rubbish and leaking effluent have flushed down from the cliffs above and into the Uluwatu’s fabled waters. Project Clean Uluwatu was founded by expat surfers, and now needs help to facilitate the handover of the group’s work to the Uluwatu locals.
