**** AFTERNOON SURF UP-DATE **** G’day crew and thanks for hanging around for the latest surf and weather info to come outta Bali. Another perfect day of waves and weather has been going down here along the South Western coastline. My first check of the Outer Reefs at 6.15am this morning was showing a pretty dry reef, too dry for Kuta Reef or Airports but perfect for Middle Reef. There was no one out at the time I was there with wave height in the 3-4ft range and peeling off. I shot these current photos down at Uluwatu just as the tide was starting to run up. Wave height was coming through in the double head high range on the Main Peak with clean and smooth surfing conditions. The wind was pretty well off-shore outta the SE through until late morning before turning more cross/off-shore from the SE-SSE. Temple’s also had a few sly 3-4 footers coming through but a little bit more open to the SSE’r. The Racetrack would be a special for the afternoon / sunset tube session ! Crowd levels started off mellow with around 30 in the water at 9.00am and peaked at something like 60, but spread out from Temple’s to the Track (a good 500+yrds). Coming home past Padang Padang and Impossible’s there didn’t seem to be much more than 1-3ft lines limping down through Impossible’s. Ok now @ 1.30pm, and with the wind still coming outta the SE-SSE @ 4-8knot it’d just about be time for all the Low tide places to start working, Middle’s, Bingin or the Track. That’s about us for this arvo but we’ll be back in the morning with another look at Bali’s surf and weather situation so stay tuned. Best Regards from the No.1 surfing holiday destination that does deliver the goods !
Good New’s Dept: Due to an extreme bout of “what a bloody co-incidence” I may have found an organisation that takes a special interest in taking care of little Balinese kiddies that haven’t got any parents. Getting them decked out in school gear and organising their school fees, books, etc etc. They are a fully volunteer type outfit and hopefully soon I’ll have the full run down on how we can help out.
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.
