**** AFTERNOON SURF UP-DATE **** G’day folks, well temperature wise it’s been a pretty hot one over here in down town Bali today. I did have all good intentions of shooting across to the east Coast after lunch earlier but when I took another closer look at the ocean wind direction had already turned to the SSW and virtually on/cross-shore at the most protected locations around the island. So I’ve put everything on hold until first thing tomorrow morning, when surfing conditions should be cleaner. Wave height has seemed to have picked up a touch on the Outer Reefs and showing 1-3ft between Airports and Kuta Reef. Although pretty ugly from the on-shore conditions. Ok then folks lets see what the morning brings and then take it from there hey. Cheers !
**** MORNING SURF UP-DATE **** Good morning groovers and thanks for tuning in to see what’s going on around Bali’s beach and reef breaks today. I went down for the 6.30am surf recon of the Outer Reefs and got a bit of a surprise to see yesterdays 2-4ft had been replaced by a meagre looking 1-1.5ft between Kuta Reef and Airports. The tide was still running out for 0.5mtr Low water line happening around 9.30-10.00am then coming back in for a 1.6mtr High @ 4.00pm. Wind direction was already coming outta the West and blowing on-shore here along Bali’s West Coast. But perfectly off-shore over on the other side of the island. I was also a bit surprised to hear that the East Coast was pretty solid yesterday. I was talking to a crew who surfed at *Sanur Reef yesterday and reckon they had some of the best waves of their trip, and no hassle’s. I’m gunna try and get over for a look at Serangan after lunch and hopefully we’ll find some action going down. So drop in again later this arvo for another dose of day dreams. For the surfers come fishermen I’m gunna be loading a few sweet shots onto the Fishing Page of baliwaves as soon as I’ve taken care of the typing.. I might even drop another 10 photos into the Bodyboarders page while I’m at it I suppose. Troy has been going hard behind the scenes and has fixed our problem with the subscribers email alert, now everytime I load new images on baliwaves.com the subscribers are automatically sent out the new report and photo. So subscribe your email address and be the first in the know with what’s happening surfwise here in Bali. Don’t worry about spam mail etc etc.. I ain’t got no time for that time wasting crap. Anyway have a good one for now, keep smiling and start organising your friends and planning your next Indonesian tube fest now !
MORE GOOD NEWS : I know it’s taken awhile for me to get this organised but that’s how it is, when it’s a one man show. Anyway for starters anyone who is prepared to help out with the Balinese Orphan Scholarship / Sponsorship Program. In other words turn around the life of a child with some basic education and putting them into a family environment. Please take a look at this website: www.ihfonline.org These people have been providing this kind of help to the less fortunate for a long time and have been doing a great job. If you are interested in being a part of this program but have some questions send an email to the founder of I.H.F; [email protected] and I’m sure Carol will be able to give you the answers. Thanks again crew !!
