Take a look back at some incredibly fluid, free-flow surfing by Jim Banks at Indonesia's infamous Uluwatu in 1977. It's just nice to cruise through this clip with that old world smooth style and classic moves. Jim Banks now lives in Bali full time where he continues to surf daily and craft some of the world's best boards.
