**** MORNING SURF UP-DATE **** Howdy crew and thanks for dropping into the baliwaves again this morning. As you can see with these new images I loaded up yesterday afternoon there were still some good shaped waves happening down on Uluwatu’s Main Peak and Temple sections. Me and and boys never got down there until 10.00am, waiting for the wind to swing off-shore. The tide was filling up fast, but wave height was still a good 4 foot and bending nicely onto the Main Peak where the bulk of the 20 or so surfers were riding. Pretty well not much more than a good take-off section followed out to a short 20yrd’s worth of tapering off wall and power. While up on Temple’s there were only half a dozen surfers scoring much longer rides in the 2-3ft+ size. Coming home past Padang Padang and Impossible’s there wasn’t barely a ripple breaking all the way down to Bingin. The outer Reefs of Tuban were not doing anything too exciting either with only 1-2ft of wave height breaking in between Kuta Reef and Airport Left. Middle Reef did have the occassional 2-3 footer peeling off towards sunset. The wind was light and variable up until 10.00am when it settled to the SE @ 3-6knot. Right now at 5.45am I’m just about finished my coffee and will be heading down to suss out todays surf and weather conditions for ya’s. So check back in after lunch and I’ll give ya the full run down on what’s happen’n here in Bali. Until then, have top day, try an get a bit of work done. Better still, start planning your next Bali surfing holiday. Cheers.

A little while back I mentioned something about baliwaves.com wanting to help out with a charity organisation carring for Balinese Orphans, by finding kind hearted folks to sponsor kids for their basic schooling needs. Well just for now if anyone would like a bit more information please send an email to: [email protected]
Purnie will be able to pass on all the info. I think it costs around AU$70.00 per year to provide a poor little kid with a school uniform, school fee’s and books plus pocket money.
Feel free to send us an email if ya have any questions that might help your next Indo surfing holiday run that bit smoother. Likewise if your looking for a cheap, clean and 100% surfer friendly place to home base at here in Bali.
Best Regards from Your Bali.
