Results for Uluwatu
One of the world’s most iconic surfing locations is set to join the World Surf League Qualifying Series calendar in 2015. The Quiksilver Uluwatu Challenge will run from 13-16 August.

Some of the best swell hit the Bukit and caught on film, both days between Uluwatu and Padang Padang. Pros and locals taking full advantage of some epic conditions.
Uluwatu is on Bali‘s must-see list. Its high vantage points, places where you can eat amazing food for ridiculously cheap, and, of course, its world-class surf create an experience unlike anything else.
Mega Semadhi is one of the most knowledgable Balinese surfers out there and his impeccable tube riding shows it. It’s no surprise why he’s had one great result after another, including a win at the very prestigious Rip Curl Cup Padang Padang Invitational in 2013. Tommy Shultz’s latest edit provides an in-depth look into Mega by elucidating the ways in which his Hindu faith plays into his life as a professional surfer.
74′ Bali was still a buzz. Story of a two months surf trip there at 17. Kuta was just a small village. Few losmen for backpackers and surfers with the neighborhood of the local families. Cows were hanging under the coconut trees. No electricity, no running water, dogs everywhere. Mushrooms from cowpats end up in a small restaurant. Pot passed from hand to hand. No forecast just the expectation of a new moon when it was flat. We had to listen the sound of the swell during the night, with the morning surprise… Just few surf spots were discovered beside Kuta and the virgin beaches up to Legian. Kuta Reef was the main surfed left on a good swell. Aussies were already ripping on 6′ boards.Frenchies, we were still under the 8′ gunny hawaiian/cal influence.
On Saturday 6th September Ulus was small and crowded – a lull between swells. Roxy surfer Hayanna Iguchi Murakawa was enjoying a surf with her friends when an hour and half into the session she heard people screaming: “I was sitting in the line-up when I heard people cheering and screaming. I looked to the side and saw a huge black fin rise up from the water.”
She is one of the most famous names in surfing, a global celebrity with reach beyond our salty circle. Bethany Hamilton found the spotlight by accident in 2003, when the budding surf star was attacked by a shark at home in Hawaii. It was a gruesome twist of fate for the then 13-year-old that cost the Kauian her left arm, but inspired her to go on and become the incredible character the world knows today.
Quiksilver Indonesia is elated to welcome Uluwatu local charger and avid surf videographer, Made Ropik to their team roster. Ropik joins other local rippers Dede Suryana, Tipi Jabrik, Rio Waida, and the high flying Made Darmayasa Bleronk.
