**** MORNING SURF UP-DATE **** G’Day crew and welcome aboard the 7/7 day baliwaves.com surf and weather information website (since ’99). Well like any other pure surfer I suppose, when I woke up just before the dawn this morning I could smell that off-shore wind. And sure as shit when I went down for a look at the Outer Reefs the wind was fanning off-shore coming straight outta the east @ 1-3knot. Unfortunately though wave height has continued it’s downward slide and only just showing waves breaking in the 1-2ft class between Kuta Reef and Airport Lefts . But with the tide still dropping maybe Middle Reef might have the odd shoulder high freaky breaking (2 footer) around mid morning. Today if your on the wave hunt you’d be heading straight down to Uluwatu and I’d imagine the best time to do that would be after the tide has bottomed out and starting to run back in. Talking to my mate “Devis” who is one of Quicksilver Indonesia’s most competitively succsessful Team riders last night and he said he surfed up at Canggu yesterday but it was purely medicinal without any real power or punch. I managed to sly in a few shorey’s down at my little beach break here in Tuban (with the groms) and it was just the same. I’ll show ya’s a few photos after I get this report typed up and on-line. I haven’t heard anything from Made over at Lakey Peak this morning so I’m assuming that there’s nothing happening over there in the surfing department today. But looking at the swell prediction information on the net and it’ll all be changing very soon, like maybe in the next 24-36hrs with some nice looking swell in transit to Bali. Weather wise ouside and right now @ 8.15am there’s plenty of deep blue sky and we’re gunna be in for more of that warm to hot beach type weather. The temperature will push into the early 30’s Celcius while the water temp is super @ 24 degree’s Celcius. So forget them wetsuits if your coming over this way. On the dollar changing scene on the streets of Kuta you’ll find that –1AU$=Rp6,950 — 1US$=Rp8,990. Ok that’s me for now, but make sure ya’s take a good tour through the baliwaves cause there’s plenty of usefull info etc etc to be found. And if there’s not much on around the office this morning take a virtual video tour of Bali via our video clip’s.
