About Uluwatu

No votes yet

Legendary left hander that works in practically any size swell. On smaller days the wave can be a bit sectiony but with a bit of size the whole thing can join up

Ulu can be split up into 3 (or more) separate sections. Outside Corner, Racetracks and Inside Corner (The Peak).

Outside Corner needs at least an overhead swell to come to life.
The Racetrack, as its name suggests is a walling / barrelling section that grinds down the reef at some speed. It's also one to avoid at lower tides and has a nasty end section.

At size there is an outside bommie here too which leads into Outside Corner. There's plenty of footage of people surfing here at over 20ft on perfectly peeling, ruler edged waves.

The other famous thing about Uluwatu is the climb down the cliff ladder and paddle in and out through the cave. There is the old horror story about some guys getting stuck out at high tide and having to paddle in at 8ft Padang Padang in the dark!
