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.
“There is no better way to experience the rawness of the movement of the Universe than getting encased in the barrel of a wave. Energy is at the base of it all. That is the direct connection to the cosmic. From the sun shining on the earth to heating things up, to creating winds that then make waves…there you go, the Universe’s direct transfer of energy… and we surfers get to join it, feel it, believe it. This energy is what drives our planet and by the time we paddle out, it’s driving us too”.

In our 2016 June/July issue Surftime Magazine published an email received from Mr. Curtis Lowe of Project Clean Uluwatu which described an unfortunate incident at the Uluwatu Offices of PCU.
The Editor of Surftime Magazine, Matt George, both shared and published this email without express permission from Mr. Curtis Lowe.
So, while i was away a drunken expat friend got a hold of the PCU keys and really jammed up my plan to force the board riders into taking some of the reigns here in Uluwatu. Set me back pretty bad really.
But, I still have faith that i can get these guys to see the value in owning PCU as their own thing.
The one thing they always bring up is that they want help raising travel money.
The biggest challenge in life is trying to be yourself in a world that wants you to be like everybody else. Style is the answer to everything. A way to approach a dull or dangerous thing. To do a dull thing with style is better than doing a dangerous thing without it. To do a dangerous thing with style is what I call art. Not many have style. Not many can keep style.
