Photographer Olga Sinenko wondered what it was like. Wondered what it would look like. Surfing old Bali in the 30’s, but with today’s longboard surfers. So she got her hands on some old authentic camera’s, some ancient film, built custom housings and spent a week documenting the Canggu longboard scene with the same kind of camera equipment and film that was available back when there was only one surfer on the island.
The results are before you. A unique look back with forward thinking. And a great way to appreciate the technicolor images of surfing we see today. Like fading memories, these images also evoke the timeless nature of surfing as this old world continues to spin around the sun.
