Good Afternoon Crew.
Well I said I had a hard act to follow with Slim away, I’ll have to brush up on the weather patterns because today was similar to yesterday in the fact the wind puffed outa the SW most of the day creating not so ideal conditions on the west coast. I am sure the boys who headed east would have scored cause there was a bit of swell running.
At about 3-30 to 4 O’clock the wind did turn back from the east and the boys jumped at the chance and hit the outside reefs in packs. Kuta Reef was pushing in some nice 3 footers and the odd bigger with a healthy crowd. Middles looked quite good and no one spotted on it till at least 5pm.
Lots of local ceremonies happening on the beach today giving the visitors here a chance to get some great colourful photos for their albums, even snuck a few myself so we will try and let you all see a bit of local culture on Slims return.
Hoping tommorrow I can be a bit more accurate in my weather, although the sun did shine all day and the swell pumped in. As long as that keeps happening as it always does this wave magnet of Bali will keep producing the goods.
You only have to jump in a plane and come on over and see for yourself, sample the waves, weather and all the other great action that happens here. It truly would be hard to find a better place for the complete package of alround fun.
Keep logging in and we’ll keep you posted on whats goin on.

Good Morning Crew
Well another beautiful morning here in Bali and after a 6am wave and weather check reveals,a slight drop in swell but only a touch. Middle reef here in Tuban showing some nice 3 to 5 footers rollin in in smooth non existing wind glass. A good dawn patrol of about 20 surfers were enjoying the conditions a bit further down the line at Kuta Reef and looked like there was plenty on offer, a few sneakers were comin through and quite a few solid ones were ridden. The tide was high around 6-30 and I’m sure the beachies in the Kuta-Legian strip and beyond were all firing.
The wind will probably get around from the easterly way abit later and fan it all up into offshore magic so all surfers on hand will I’m sure get there fill of great waves. Reports from yesterdays session at Uluwatu sounded pretty good with overhead power for the boys on tap and accepted by all who took it on.So today it will be action stations again down there.
Its great to see a good batch of surfers hittin town to enjoy whats on offer, Warm Weather, Warm Water and Warm People, it really is a great place for all to come. Bout 30C later and clear blue sky, swell rolling in so another classic day ahead for all who are aboard.
Well I’ll have to have a closer inspection of the waves out front at KR, a short 100 odd metres down the road and I will let you all know later on this afternoon of the days happenings on the Island of Bali. Stay tuned for all current wave conditions and up to date happenings every day on baliwaves.com. I’m holding the fort whilst Slims away, he works real hard to get ya all the latest and greatest news and pics from a truly surfers paradise, he’s a hard act to follow and hope you all stay tuned.

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 G-Land. How to get over to Lakey Peak. Likewise if your looking for a cheap, clean and 100% surfer friendly place to home base at here in Bali.
