When Matt Warshaw announced his new websites for HOS and ATR in January, joining EOS to form surf history’s royal triumvirate, the orbit of surf media slowed down. More specifically, it went backwards. Back to surfing’s beginnings, to its continental cross-pollinations. To its heroes, pioneers, and martyrs, figures whose lives were an effort to articulate that ineffable high of riding a wave.

When Gerry Lopez first surfed Uluwatu in 1974, the fabled Balinese wave was magical, empty and pristine. Gerry returned to Uluwatu 40 years later to find it bustling, developed and profoundly changed. After a week of surfing and yoga, however, Gerry tapped into a spirit of place that continues to endure.

In recent years, booming popularity has placed huge environmental pressure on the Uluwatu area. Project Clean Uluwatu is working to ease this pressure and restore the area’s pristine nature. Please donate to help keep this iconic place sacred and intact for locals and visitors alike:

The More Things Change was directed by Nathan Myers and features surfing from Gerry Lopez, Dave Rastovich, Rob Machado and Rizal Tanjung.
