**** MORNING SURF UP-DATE **** Hey good morning crew, an a big thanks for keeping on coming back to the baliwaves. Ok this is gunna be a real short one today cause old Slim is stinging to get out there for a surf at his favourite location. An I think it’s only fair at that ! I was down on the beach checking out todays surfing conditionms @ 7.00am an it’s looking real good here along Bali’s West Coast. Wave height was coming through in the 3-5ft range on the Outer Reefs of Tuban. With wind direction coming lightly outta the ENE, off-shore @ 2-4knot. Kuta Reef was peeling off nicely in the 2-3ft+ range with a few early birds out there already catching worms. Middle Reef was holding a more respectible size @ 3-4ft+ and not doing to bad either seeing as the tide was almost at the top of a mid to high range High. Airport Left was breaking cleanly in the 2-3ft range and already around 25 surfers in the water… Upstairs there’s nothing but blue sky and air, it’s gunna be a very warm to hot one along the coast (pity the poor buggers that arn’t along the coast hey). Perfect weather, perfect waves and perfect water temp is what it is. No report in from Lakey Peak this morning Made must be out surfing I suppose. Changing dollars to Rupiah on the streets of Kuta; –1AU$=Rp7,100 –1US$=Rp9,080. Ok crew, the anxiety is getting the better of me so I gotta get out there. Stay tuned over the weekend there’s gunna be plenty of action happening till come Monday. We’ll be out with the camera gear for another Sunday session so in the mean time go and get some waves yaself !
