A guide to the best surf break in Bali, Uluwatu, by the local legend Garut Widiarta.
Uluwatu is one of those places that is so steeped in history and beauty that it smacks you in the face as soon as you lay eyes on it. The huge, towering cliffs, the tiny winding roads surrounded by jungle on both sides, and above all, the lines of lefthanders rolling through the entire coastline as far as the eye can see. It's truly astounding.
But with its beauty, it can be a confusing place for a newcomer. Although it's considered one area and the wave is often generalised as "Uluwatu", the lefthander is actually multiple different breaks carrying multiple different names – from Temples to the real Ulus, down to Outside Corner (when it’s big) all the way through to Racetracks.
Garut Widiarta is a local surfing legend of the Bukit Peninsula, and a man much respected around Uluwatu. Here, he takes you on your own personal guide of Uluwatu, from point to point and down the cliff. Enjoy.
