Uluwatu Bali - What are surfers reading?
Part 1

What follows is a totally unscientific investigation into what surfers are reading. This sample was taken in Bali at the cliff restaurant overlooking the surf break Uluwatu, a kilometer south of the temple, warung Salin and Nusa Dua.

It is the end of November, hot and humid. The rainy season had not yet really started. The surf was head high and hollow. The sea was at low tide and the reef at Uluwatu was as sharp as always.
