Bali 1977 Surf and Scenery

In 1977 Bali was just being discovered as a surfing/holiday destination and  it did not take long to catch on.

The Sunsets in Bali are beautiful. Fishing Boat at Sunset inside Kuta Reef 1977

Surfing at Uluwatu. Unknown Surfer Uluwatu 1977. Uluwatu had some sections in it that day, so I was glad to come in and take some photos. The surf got better with the tide coming in. Take note don’t surf here at low tide.

The friends I was staying with at Legion decided we should go for  a day trip to climb up the mountains to the top of this active Volcano near Batur.

The trip started early in the morning and took about 5 hours, it was  hot and dry and a bit daunting. I was amazed that about halfway up we met a  young boy with a bucket of cold drinks. I think he sold out that day. This is  what the inside of an active volcano looks like, and its a long, hot, way  down. Inside the Volcano at Butur

The Surf was good most of the time at Legion, here I managed to get in front of the camera for a change. Crow surfing at Legian 1977
