Good Afternoon and Bali Greetings to All.
After yet another super day of warmth and waves the sun is just setting over the west and a magical Kuta Beach Sunset it is. The surf this morning was of fine quality with some real nice 2 to 4ft waves breaking at Airport, Middle Reef and Kuta (sampled a few myself which was great) on the incoming tide,as soon as it peaked on high and started to drop the consistency of the sets started to slow, late this afternoon on the dead low some nice looking waves were pushing through at Middles in the 3 to 4ft range and being enjoyed by those who ventured out.
Down south at Uluwatu some lovely high tide waves were had but later the swell direction didnt really co operate for the low tide session at the Track, though I’m sure a few barrels were had. There was a healthy contingent of both local and international pros who headed east. A coupla friends of mine were sitting in a boat taking footage and said that the surfing action was simply red hot, barrels and severe lip bashin was the order of the day. They are heading over again early in the morning for what I could imagine will be a repeat session.
As I’ve mentioned before The Kuta Karnival is not that far away Sept 20 to 25 and all kinds of action will be takin place so all is gearing up for that. Hope to see you all here real soon to enjoy it and all the other great things to do on the Beautiful Island of Bali. Slims back late this evening and you will hear from him tommorrow. Has been great holding the fort for him whilst his been gone, I may get the chance to write again someday. Hope its been informative and a decent read.
Take care All! Keep Surfing. The Best Part of Our Life
Good Morning from Baliwaves.
Well another fine day weatherwise here and the wind blowin outa the SE, a swell check reveals a slight increase in wave height with some beautiful 4footers reelin in at Airport Lefts, Middle Reef and continuing down the line to Kuta Reef. The morning surfers have been out amongst it since dawn as we have a full moon today and a nice high tide of 2.2mtrs giving everyone hours of full reef coverage so all should get there wave quota fulfilled. A beach break check showed peaks peelin along the beach as far as I could see.
For the guys who stay down the Bukit and those who hit the road down that way the high tide offerings will be creating heaps of fun for all and later in the day(low tide 0.3 at 4pm)the fabled Racetrack will be spittin smokin barrels for those who pull in.
Slim is back tonight after his northern sojourn and he will fill you all in, he will be a busy lad upon his return with pics to edit and post to you and catch up on all relative info thats been happening here. He really does work hard on BW’s, it is his life along with surfing and I know he enjoys bringing you the latest and greatest news from here,spending hours every day to keep you all updated and current to the things going on here. Let him know and give him some support. The kool Kuta Karnival is just round the corner with stacks goin on so we’ll keep ya all posted on what happens.
Well the ocean calls so I must go and answer and feel for myself her offerings. I hope to get some new pics from the water as well so stay tuned.
Best Regards From Funtastic 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 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.
