Uluwatu Surf Villas and Rip Curl have partnered up for an unforgettable evening filled with ocean-inspired art, music, and a film above the cliffs of Uluwatu. The Surf Memorabilia Auction will include prizes, catered food and entertainment all to benefit the local environmental organization, Project Clean. Imagine having the opportunity to surf alongside Bali surf legends Ketut Menda and Wayan Ganti during the 2013 Rip Curl Cup Padang Padang Invitational! This once in a lifetime experience is just one of the life changing prizes up for grabs on July 13th at the 2nd Annual Project Clean Uluwatu Fundraiser.
Watch an episode of the original Surf Channel eco travel series, LOCAL STYLE, from Season 1, Episode 1 featuing this epic Balinese break:
Other once-in-a-lifetime auction items include a one hour dream session to surf empty Uluwatu on a day chosen by the winner that falls within the Rip Curl Cup waiting period (lineup will be cleared by local lifeguards), a signed Christian Fletcher surfboard from his personal quiver, a 9’0” Byrning Spear gun surfboard hand-shaped by legendary surfboard craftsman Allan Byrn, and more.
Join surfing luminaries and the surfers in this year’s Rip Curl Cup Padang Padang Invitational as they gather for what will undoubtedly be the highlight of the opening week of the Rip Curl Cup waiting period.

About Project Clean Uluwatu
Started by a group of expat surfers in Bali, Project Clean Uluwatu (PCU, formerly known as Eco Surf Rescue Uluwatu) was formed when NGOs GUS Foundation and ROLE Foundation teamed up with the surf industry, local businesses and residents to address the pollution problems at Uluwatu. The PCU mission is to work with locals to provide solid and liquid waste infrastructure that keeps Uluwatu clean and beautiful. We hope the world-famous surf break will one day become a pristine and healthy World Surf Heritage Area for the benefit of the Uluwatu community and future generations.
Right now PCU is working to keep the newly installed solid waste and recycling system running. This year, PCU is also installing a professionally designed and environmentally friendly liquid waste system to finally solve the problem of leaking sewage and kitchen waste water. Construction for the new system’s central processing tank is currently underway.

About Uluwatu Surf Villas
Uluwatu Surf Villas is located at Jl.Pantai Suluban, Uluwatu on the Bukit, perched on the cliff top with expansive grounds and 180 degree ocean front views. The Villas have already played host to several film premieres, weddings, fundraisers for the community and private launch parties. The Villas are arguably the finest spot to be on the Island when the sun is setting, live music is playing, and the big screen is set up with the background of the Indian Ocean.
