****AFTERNOON SURF UP-DATE****
Hi guys and gals and of course a big thanks for stopping by the baliwaves.com for more news on todays surfing and weather conditions here on the “off-shore in February surfing holiday island of Bali.
Ok as expected this mornings surf check on the Outer Reefs here in Tuban was finally showing some nice waves out the front. The tide was still pretty low at 6.30am but Middle Reef had a consistent head to almost double head high wave peeling off nicely and no surfers out there yet. As the tide started to fill back in Kuta Reef was peeling off some long walled head to over head high set waves with around 20 surfers in the line up. While down on Airports the channel was full of reef taxi’s and at least 30 surfers riding the waist to head high waves. And it looks like we should see even a touch more swell gracing the reefs again tomorrow.
Surfing conditions were perfect with the wind coming lightly out of the ESE @ 2-5knot blowing straight off-shore between Kuta and Uluwatu. Around 12.30noon it shifted around to the South @ 3-6knot. We might even see a little more of that clean wind later this afternoon.
Tidal info for today had a 0.2mtr Low @ 7.00am and then pouring back in for a 2.4mtr High around 1.30pm
Weather wise it’s still blue sky and sunshine with the odd cloud drifting over. Temperature wise it would have peaked at 33 degree’s Celsius.
No photos today, but tomorrows another day and hopefully I’ll get some new Indo inspiration for ya’s through out the weekend. So feel free to call by the baliwaves all through it.
Swell forecast, at last we have some good news with a new new medium swell in trasit to Bali that should start to show by Saturday / Sunday. In the mean time we should see a smaller system give wave height a nudge by tomorrow afternoon (Wed)
