“Yes sir, Mr. Luke Davis himself,” says photographer Damea Dorsey. “The Reef team are in town and the waves are pumping. Nyepi was yesterday and everybody had to take the day off from doing anything. So today everyone was ready to cut loose. Taylor Knox, Shane Dorian, Mikala Jones, Luke Davis, and Adam Bennetts headed to the east side of the island of the Gods and found a local contest ruining a firing lineup at Keramas. New location names were thrown around but I don’t think there was a bad call to be made on the island, since the waves were epic everywhere. Mikala and Luke ended up on a peak by themselves. Mikala picked off a few of the better sets while Luke had a go at few. Luke almost got slammed by one of the shifty slabs but ended up pulling it off by the skin of his pearly whites. On the beach there was a mini Momentum reunion when Benji Weatherly showed up, stating that a ‘little bird’ had told him Taylor and Shane were in town. FYI, Betet is Balinese for ‘little bird’.”
