I took this walking down the staircase to Uluwatu. This was my first glimpse of Uluz with trade winds in the 2011 season.
I shot this from the cliff warungs of Uluwatu. This day was one of the better early season days at Uluz. There were only ten guys out at the Racetrack, which is almost unheard of these days.
Sitting on the cliffs at Uluwatu, you can easily see who's good
and who isn't. Nate Yeomans at the Racetrack, Uluwatu Bali.

The locals on Bali seem to get better every time I visit. Agust Broww (Blackie) pulling in at the main peak, Uluwatu.
While in search of empty waves on an overly crowded island, I ran into probably the best pieces of real estate on the island. South end of the Bukit, Bali.
