Legendary surfer Rob Machado spent six month riding breakers in Bali. Filmmaker Taylor Steele caught the action on film. This weekend, at a Nat Geo Music Live event, Steele and Machado will screen their film, Melali: The Drifter Sessions. The event is sold out, but you can listen to an interview with Machado from the NG Weekend radio show with Boyd Matson.
