Somebody with a paipo in Bali...anybody from here? Just the one first wave but there's enough lead-in to check the board.

I'm told the logo is that of Kuta Lines from Newcastle. Seems like they have a retail presence in Bali. I'm seeking more info.

The founder of Kuta lines was Tony Brown,. They4 didn't make boards, so the logo may be a Balinese copy.

Now those two boards actually "speak to me"...far more than the board in the vid.

Read that Kuta was a clothing brand apparently being brought back to life, so maybe just a sponsor sticker?
