**** LUNCH TIME SURF UP-DATE **** Hey Crew !! Thanks for hanging in there there’s been nothing I could do from the “act of God” that fired off an earthquake off the coast of Taiwan on the 27th. Breaking the optic fibre cable that handle’s the internet service for Indo and other countries. Internet service is still pretty sketchy but I’ve managed to hunt up a connection and we’re back on the road !!
Ok just ta quickly bring ya’s up ta date on what’s been happening on the surf scene in Bali it’s been raining and the wind howling outta the SSW for the last 2-3 days so it hasn’t been looking to pretty out on the ocean. This morning the swell finall hit the Outer Reefs here in Tuban pushing wave size up into the 3-5ft+ range but it’s like a washing machine out there for now. The wind is still blowing outta the SSW @ 15-20knot / on-shore just about at every location…
Our man on location at Lakey Peak on the island of Sumbawa has phoned me up and reckons the swell hasn’t hit there yet. Wave height on Lakey Peak is still in the 1-2ft range while the tide was still out through the early AM. But they should start to get some more solid swell over there by late afternoon. He also said that the strong wind that’s been affecting Bali hasn’t been showing over there until around 2.00pm.
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 !!
