**** MORNING SURF UP-DATE **** Welcome to baliwaves this winter’y Monday morning in Bali. Well I had to wait for the rain to stop before I could make a bolt down to the beach for a look. When I did get down there @ 7.30am there were no visual signs of any improvement in wave height, in fact if anything, smaller. The tide was running down to a 0.9 mtr Low taking place around 10.00am, following with a High water mark of 1.8 mtrs @ 4.00pm this afternoon. Wave height in between Kuta Reef and Airport Left was lucky to have been in the 1-1.5ft range with the chance of a 2 footer hitting the Middle Reef. We’ve also got some pretty harsh weather happening outside, well for the tropics anyway. The rain started last night and looks like there’s still more to fall yet by the colour of the clouds that keep blowing over. The wind is already fresh off-shore outta the ESE @ 5-10 knot and I’d say it’ll get a lot stronger before the days out. I’m gunna be keeping a close eye on the ocean today as I got a feeling the next batch of swell shouldn’t be too far away. I’ll get back to ya’s this afternoon if anything happens. Until then have a good one out there and stay tuned. Hey I thought I’d just mention that I have been getting a lotta email lately from people asking me “what’s the attitude or vibe towards Aussies over there” Well I don’t really know what’s been on the telly (TV) over there but I can tell ya’s all now, (and save me a lotta emails). Aussies, by the majority, are probably the most liked visitors by the Local Balinese, mainly because of their easy going, friendly attitudes. So forget about Fiji and get yourself back over to Bali this year. Best Regards from the No.1 surfing destination your gunna find.
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. Surfer-girl won’t be involved with the Orphan Sponsorship Program as of the 12th of June. But we will find a way to keep it continuing, so drop us an email if you’d like to help out. It doesn’t cost much to provide a poor little kid with a school uniform, school fee’s and books.
Here’s a quick up-date on the Bali Orphan Project, last week baliwaves.com found sponsors for 3 unfortunate Balinese kiddies. Now if we can only keep the momentum going I know we can do some more, AU$8.00 per month per year for everything needed to put a child in school.
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.
