**** MORNING SURF UP-DATE **** Good morning my friends and thanks for stopping by to see whats happening surf and weather wise here in Bali today . Well pretty much the same as it was yesterday swell wise on the Outer Reefs at 6.30am when I was down on the beach. Wave height on the Outer Reefs of Tuban still remains in the 1-2ft range between Kuta Reef and Airport Lefts. The only difference this morning is that the wind was coming outta the NW @ 6-9knot insteasd of straight Westerly that’s been blowing over the last week or two. And the tide was just about on the bottom of a fairly dry looking Low.
Once again we can cancel out searching for waves here along Bali’s West Coast due to the strong on-shore wind. Over on the East Coast surfing conditions are perfectly off-shore but there ain’t too much swell happening over there from all reports I’ve had in this morning. Wave height between Nusa Dua and say Keramas is also only breaking in the waist to head high range . But that’s still enough to get out there and have some fun. Hopefully if the sky is clear enough around lunch time we’ll be getting across there to get ya’s some new photos .
Looking at the predicted swell forecast for the next few days and there’s not going to be much change with wave height only yo-yo’ing up and down a foot with the tide changes. I’ll have another look and at the longer range predictions later this morning and give ya’s the full run down tomorrow.
Weather wise , more rain through the night and continuing through till around 7.00am this morning. Right now at 9.00am those rain clouds have been blown over leaving us with blue sky, well here in the Tuban / Kuta area anyway.
Changing dollars to Rupiah out on the streets of Kuta you’ll find that; –1US$=Rp9,400. –1AU$=Rp8,200. – 1NZ$=Rp7,650 – You can probably give or take a few Rupiah on these rates as the money changers adjust their rates two to three times a day.
