Putu grew up in a village close to Canggu, Bali – practically a stone’s throw away from the ocean. His love for the sea bloomed at a very young age.
He rode his first waves when he was 12 years old. At the time, surfing wasn’t a prevalent sport like it is today. The few boys in Putu’s village that wanted to learn to surf had to take turns sharing one surfboard.
Oftentimes, after hours of patiently waiting for your turn, the waves had already passed. However, it didn’t dim Putu’s burning passion for the sport. His love for surfing kept growing until he became a talented, professional surfer.
At 23 years, he officially became an ISA certified surf instructor, lifesaver and a head coach at a surf camp in Bali.
