**** MIDDAY SURF UP-DATE **** G’day surfers and I guess I betta fill ya’s in on Balangan yesterday first hey. Well Balangan has gone through a lotta changes since I used to get down there regularly. Yesterday when I arrived around 10.00am there were only something like a dozen surfers scattered from the point to the middle section. Wave height was smoking through in the 3-5ft+ range and hardly any lull between the next one’s. As usual a lotta the waves were peeling a bit quick and sectioning off, but every now and then you’d see a surfer take off out on the point and ride it all the way to the end, a good 350yrds worth. It’s still a beautiful spot to hang out at down Balangan, and we’ll be heading back down there again real soon. I should also mention though that I did see at least 6 surfers hit the shore with various sized reef lacerations. When I packed up the camera @ 1.00pm the waves were still cranking and the number of surfers out there had jumped to around 40. Today the 16th and @ 6.30am wave height on the Outer Reefs here in Tuban was still looken good @ 3-4ft+ between Kuta Reef and Airport left. The tide was still dropping so Kuta Reef and Airports were too low but should be cranking by late morning / lunch time. Middle Reef still had some solid waves peeling off for the couple of surfers on it and better suited to the lower end of the tide. The wind is off-shore blowing outta the ESE-SE @ 4-8knot and we got a solid blue sky. Another day of perfect waves and beach lifestyle with us again, that’s what it’s about. Our man WDT has got some photos of Kuta Reef for ya’s to take a look at and I should have them loaded on baliwaves later on. I also gotta apologise to my one bodyboarding mate who corrected me on how it stands in the surfers V’s bodyboarders in the “keep baliwaves.com free to view” appeal. it’s surfers 9, bodyboarders 1. Ok team have a good one today and don’t forget to get down to your local travel agent pronto and book a Bali holiday full of sunshine and perfect waves, for all levels of experience ! Best Regards from Your Bali.
Please if ya can help out baliwaves with a dollar or two we would certainly appreciate it, ( I certainly would..) I really wanna be able to do a lot more helping out with the less fortunate folk around Bali and Indo but first I need to make sure that baliwaves.com keeps it’s head above the high tide line, if ya know what I mean. Right now I’m just doing it, but my credit card is just about maxed out in the red. To tell ya the truth, I don’t want more than I need to get by. I’ve been borrowing cars for the last 8 years to get you guys the material that gets ya stoked. This isn’t an anual thing by the way, it’s just baliwaves.com asking for a helping hand at times of need.
Why don’t ya 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.
