**** MORNING SURF UP-DATE **** G’Day surfers and welcome back to the baliwaves, and a special hello to all the new crew finding us for the very first time. This mornings surf recon of the Outer Reefs of Tuban (7.00am) was looking good, good for water sking that is. Beautiful conditions out on the water, smooth, clean and glassy with the wind coming lightly outta the WNW @ 0-1knot. Alas, wave height was barely in the 6 inch range (backs). And for that matter I’ve been talking to a few semi ex-pats who were on the wave hunt yesterday and reckoned the best wave attracting locations like Uluwatu and Nusa Dua were barely surfable @ 1-2ft. Don’t forget if the waves are small at Uluwatu then there ain’t no waves anywhere in Indo. Today it’s even smaller out there, so we had better be looking at alternatives to surfing. But it’s still shaping up for a good one around the beach with plenty of blue sky and sweet sweet sunshine. The tide is still pushing up for a NEW MOON High set for around 10.30am so when that time comes around ya can pretty well expect it to be flat, or all but. I’ve got plenty to do though, after I try and get through some of my email back log (please remember folks that if ya do send the Slim an email don’t expect an instant reply, try and have a look at life through his eye’s). Well then I’ve got a meeting with Mr Mike Pugh the General Manager of Exotic Real Estate. Don’t get me wrong I aint got no real estate, Mike just sponsored a WHOLE CLASS of ORPHANED BALINESE KIDS for a WHOLE YEAR. What a good bloke to say the very least. So if your thinking about real estate in Bali make sure ya look up Mike at EXOTIC REAL ESTATE, they care about the community and not just your bucks (plus he’s a SURFER !!!). Back on the wave scene, I’m hopen that we may just see a new pulse of swell hitting Bali’s reef and beach breaks sometime in the next 48-56hrs, give or take. Nothing huge mind ya but at least we should be able to get in some relief from the current wave drought phase we been locked in with. Alrighty then I’ll try and dig ya’s up something outta my 11.5yrs worth of DV/photo archives just ta keep ya’s remembering that there is no other surfing destination in this World that can compare to what we got here in Bali and the rest of Indonesia. So start organising ya friends for Bali ’07.
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 !!
