**** MORNING SURF UP-DATE **** Good morning crew and what a good looking day we’ve got coming on for the dwindling amount of holiday makers left in Bali. I wandered down for a look at the Outer Reefs @ 7.00am and like I mentioned yesterday, wave height has indeed boosted back up into a more respectible 2-4ft between Kuta Reef and Airports. The tide was just hitting the top of a mid range 1.7mtr High and then is only gunna be dropping down for a 0.7mtr Low around 1.00pm. The wind was coming outta the NW @ 2-3knot, light on-shore but surfing conditions were still clean and smooth. I noticed the wind prediction websites are calling for a return to ESE and off-shore wind, we’ll have to wait and see about that though. I’d imagine the East coast of Bali would be providing some nice waves this morning, as the wind would be straight off-shore on that side of the island. As soon as I can get through a million domestic duties (I’ve been putting on hold trying to keep up with you guys) I’ll see if it’s worth getting out to shoot ya’s some new material. At the very least ya’s can expect some more video clips later this arvo. Here’s a quick up-date on the Balinese Orphan Sponsorship Program we’ve been pushing; yesterday we had a proper gentleman from the UK donate 500 Pound Sterling to the IHF !!! And remember this is a 100% non profit organisation. 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 !!
