**** MIDDAY SURF UP-DATE **** Well time seems to have slipped away abit on me over the last week I’ve been down under in Australia. It’s been pretty hectic on the time schedule, and that would be to say the very least. But Troy and I have managanged to score a few waves in between Newcastle and the Gold Coast . Here’s a few snap shots from parts of Australia’s East Coast for starters and all I can say for now is that here in Newcastle the wind is howling on-shore outta the SE @ 10-14knot. Wave height is only in the 1-3ft range but totally blown out. I’ve got a couple of surf reports (sms) for ya’s, first up from Bali . Apparantly it’s been pretty windy along on the West Coast with strong W-SW on-shore wind. Today the wind has dropped off and there were a few 2-4 footers coming through on Middle Reef , according to Sam Kench. Sam also mentions that surfing conditions are shaping up nicely for some clean waves on the East Coast of Bali. Made’s Lakey Peak sms surf report from the island os Sumbawa says that there were clean 2-3 footers hitting lakey Peak around 8.00am. No wind at all to disturb the 10 surfers in the water. Ok Sam and Made are going to be keeping us all in the loop for the next few days or so. I’ll try my best to let you know whats going on where ever I happen to be for now.
