Bali 74

Racking Focus: Spyder Wills films Gerry Lopez and Rory Russell at Uluwatu from The Surfer's Journal on Vimeo.

Forty years ago I had the good fortune to spend a month on Bali, just after these guys left the island. An American expat had a board Gerry and Rory had left behind.

At Uluwatu, when you lost your board it goes straight in to the cliff face.  I had brought tape, resin and catalyst on the trip as leashes were relatively new and not all that reliable. It was a nice board but it took all the resin I had to make it water tight.

I charged the guy 100 bucks and in 74 that was a lot of dings!
