The More Things Change – from Patagonia surf videos. Back when Gerry Lopez first surfed Uluwatu in 1974, the fabled Balinese wave was so magical, so empty and so pristine. Gerry has returned to Uluwatu 40 years later to find it bustling and not even the same place, developed and profoundly changed forever. After a week of surfing and yoga, however, Gerry tapped into a spirit of place that continues to endure within. The More Things Change was directed by Nathan Myers and features surfing from Gerry Lopez, Dave Rastovich, Rob Machado and Rizal Tanjung.

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:
