**** AFTERNOON SURF UP-DATE **** Howdy folks and thanks for being patient with us today, it was a pretty cloudy morning (inside my head) earlier. Surfwise today we suffered a big cut back in swell, dropping down to the 1-2ft range on the Outer Reefs here in Tuban. There was still a few takers though, and a handful of surfers out on all sections, from Kuta Reef all the way down to Airports. Me I knew wasn’t going to be riding my motor bike anywhere in my condition… but good old Wavey Dave Tinson (alias Dave Acks-man) got us a few photos of Uluwatu to check out. Early this morning the wind was coming outta the SW @ 3-7knot and ON-SHORE right along Bali’s entire Western Coastline. Then sometime around midday she switched to the SSE and pretty much off/cross-shore from Legian and South to Uluwatu. Weather wise, hot and sunny with barely a cloud to be seen and a max of 34 degree’s Celcius outta the shade. I’m thinking that we should be in for some fresh swell sometime in the next 36hrs and as usual just in time for the weekend. So don’t go too far away, unless it’s to the airport ! Hey and I’ve had some great feed back from Carol @ IHF and we’re doing real good, getting more Balinese Orphans into a better life !!! Thanks again to the kind hearted crew who have contacted Carol. While I’m at it Mr Tony Garcia who is the author of some great surfing related (fiction) books has donated a heap of his latest novels for me to give away to anyone who can take part in sponsoring a Balinese Orphan. These books are a good read (red em all) and relate to surfing around, Bali / G-Land / South America and a heap of other locations. So drop me a line and I’ll send ya some books ! You can also check Tony’s website for a look at his work at www.soldierboy.com If anyone out there has a good product that’s made for travelling surfers you should drop me an email and we’ll help ya target your market. This year we had a heap of drama’s with the running of baliwaves.com and we were still managing to attract 70,000 unique viewers per month and up ta 20,000 page views per day. I think we’ve got a good product ! So drop us a line. Now’s a good time to start organising your friends for your next indonesian surfing adventure in ’07.
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 !!
