**** MIDDAY SURF UP-DATE **** Howdy folks and thanks for droppin by the baliwaves again today ! Well this morning’s surfing conditions on the Outer Reefs was pretty well blown out with wind direction coming outta the WNW @ 4-7knot. But there was a fun sized 2-3ft of swell still reaching Kuta Reef through to Airports. So I thought I’d do the bolt across to Nusa Dua, this was around 8.30am. But by the time I made the 30 minute journey the wind has shifted right around to the South and no good for nothing. As ya’s can see in these photos I shot (through the rain) wave height over there was only just making 3 foot or head high. There were around 20+ surfers spread out but wave quality was a bit rough to say the least. Right now @ 12.00 noon the sun is powering back up here in Tuban and we’re gunna be in for a hot and humid old afternoon. What am I gunna do ? I’m just gunna load ya’s up some more video clips, so make sure ya check em out ! I’m not happy with todays photos ok, so I’m gunna be trying again tomorrow so see ya’s again then ! 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.
