For this event, Kima Surf organized a few mornings in Keramas to go see the pro Surfer closely.
THE ULUWATU CT:
The World Surf League (WSL) has confirmed that Event No. 3 of the 2018 WSL Championship Tour (CT), the Margaret River Pro in Western Australia that was canceled due to shark activity, will be completed at the world-class wave of Uluwatu (south of Bali).
