**** AFTERNOON SURF UP-DATE **** Good afternoon folks and thanks for dropping into the baliwaves ! Well surf fever got the better of me today and that’s why there was no morning report, sorry…. And I do have to admit there has been some nice waves rolling through on the Outer Reefs of Tuban today. Wave height has been holding in there at 3-5ft+ in between Kuta Reef and Airport Right. I stuck with the local Kuta Reef, when I first got out there the wind was hardly existant and there were around another 20 surfers on the scene. But as the tide started to run out the crowd dropped back to only 5 surfers. The waves were clean and glassy, your usual perfect Kuta Reef winding out rides for 100mtrs+. More blue sky upstairs with a few scatted clouds, the land temp maxed out around 30 degree’s Celcius and the water was fine at 21 degree’s Celcius. Ok my arms need a rest, musta paddled at least 5 kms in my 2.5hr session. Tomorrow being Sunday we can almost count on there being more good surf around Bali so we’ll be heading out to catch some more of the action on photo an DV. So until tomorrow have a good one, I think a couple of cold Bintang beers might be on the cards for me tonight. Just before I clock out department: Changing dollars to Rupiah on the streets of Tuban: — 1US$=Rp8,780 — 1AU$=Rp6,625 –. L8R.
I have been asked to pass on to the baliwaves.com crew some special prices for anyone who’s been thinking of hitting the Mentawai Islands. The owner of one of the the largest charter operations for the area has some vacancies to fill on quite a few of his boats. He’s going to give another 10% discount to any of you surfers for any bookings for this month, April ’06. Here’s a quick break down of what he’s got for ya’s, and if your interested shoot him an email straight away.

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. Discounts into the G-Land camp of your choice. How to get over to Lakey Peak and still have money to spread around. 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.
