**** MORNING SURF UP-DATE **** Howdy folks and thanks for dropping into the baliwaves ! This mornings 6.45am surf recon of the Outer Reefs of Tuban wasn’t looking too impressive for starters. Wave height hasn’t changed at all, still only in the 1ft range on Kuta Reef with the occassional 1-2 foot wind blown set on Middle Reef and Airport Left . The wind was already fresh, on-shore coming outta the West @ 10knot+ so the best waves today are gunna be found over on the East Coast. I was talking to Tuban local surfer “Tole” earlier and he said he surfed at Keramas yesterday and scored some nice and clean 2-3 footers, and that’s where he was heading today for some more. I’d reckon there’d be some slightly bigger waves happening at Green Balls and Nusa Dua reefs down on the South Eastern end of Bali as well. There’s not much tidal difference gunna be happening today with the Low water only dropping down to 1.2mtrs before lunch time and then running back up for a 1.8mtr High around 5.00pm this afternoon. Weather wise today we had a few drops of rain just after sunrise but now @ 9.30am the cloud has thinned out and we’re starting to see some patches of blue sky. Temperature wise we should see the mercury reach into the high twenties while the humidity is right up there in the mid 90’s. I’ll be keeping a close eye on wave height today as our new swell shouldn’t be too far out, if there are any changes in surfing conditions I’ll get back to ya’s with an afternoon surf up-date ok. Crossing over to lakey Peak on the island of Sumbawa and Made has sms’d through his report and says that wave height has also dropped off a touch but there’s still the occassional 2 footer hitting Lakey Peak . At the time there were 10 surfers out on the Peak and that surfing conditions were clean and glassy, no one surfing on Lakey Pipe . They’ve also been getting some rain over at Lakey’s through the night and into the early am and then mainly fine and sunny through the day. Made has also mentioned that the number of visiting International surfers in the area has dropped off suddenly and down in the low 20’s. So to me that sounds like an open invitation for anyone wanting the lakey Peak experience. Drop me an email if ya want the goss on how to get there at Cost Price. No report in from Ray at Kandui just yet but hopefully we’ll have some more surfing news from the Kandui surf resort in the Mentawai’s later in the day. Until then have a good one stay safe and happy and get ready for your next Indo surfing safari !!!
