    wow...soooo many people in the water on what used to be a virtually unknown break....and trying to navigate around all those guys with cameras climbing the wall of breaking waves as you try to stay deep...its kinda like driving an FI car in a race with people dashing across the track in front of you

    some superb surfing in there on some of the best waves you will ever see....how off the wall is that 10yo kid....and those tubes towards the end just keep getting better until the very last one

    great clip!

    Padang Padang Dreamland and Ulus are about the most crowded waves on the island.. short hops from Kuta so holiday makers can be partying at night and get to the break easily next morning.

    I would have thought the photogs less of a problem than other fools dropping in, at least photogs know where to position themselves on the wave, the other fools are just, not looking. And yeah that kid was awesome.

    Also awesome is the kind of level of film gear available on a budget these days.. Aerial rigs, 4k HD cams, etc etc etc..
