The Inertia

We’re living in strange times right now. A global pandemic has made travel a sticky thing, to say the least. Because of that, it’s a uniquely incredible time for a surf trip — if you can do it properly, of course, and if you’re willing to risk it. But if you are and can, well, Bali is the place to be. Surfers lucky enough or brave enough to be there right now shared the sparse lineup with someone of note: Kelly Slater, who was recently spotted on September 8 at Uluwatu.

“There hasn’t been a whole lot of footage of Kelly surfing in Indo over the last few years, so it feels pretty special to have him here in Bali during a swell,” wrote Surfers of Bali. “Speaking of which, it got quite solid the following day with some very good and consistent Padang Padang. The crowd was thick but Robert still managed to snag a few good ones.”
