**** MORNING SURF UP-DATE **** Howdy crew and welcome back to the baliwaves.com for the run down on whats happening surf and weather wise here on the happy little holiday island of Bali . Well yesterday I should apologize for not getting enough spare minutes in the day to type up your surf report. But I have to say there was some good waves being surfed all around the island with a solid increase in wave height . Here on the Outer Reefs wave height had boosted into the 2-4ft range. As ya’s can see in these low quality frame grabs I’ve loaded up this morning Dewa Made was over on the East Coast at Secrets where there were some perfect left and right handers breaking in the 3-4ft+ range . The crew from here at Home Base reckoned the wind was light on-shore coming outta the SW but as ya’s can see surfing conditions were still clean and glassy on the East Coast of Bali. Oh yeah and I also managed to get another 100 odd photos loaded in the Surfing Photo Gallery for January yesterday so have a sticky beak in there later on.
This morning the 31st when I was down taking my 6.30am surf recon of the Outer Reefs surfing conditions were pristine with the wind blowing off-shore outta the ENE @ 1-3knot . But alas wave height is still totally under the influence of the “yo-yo” effect and has dropped off down into the 1-1ft+ range . So even though surfing conditions are perfect there’s nothing worth riding between Kuta Reef and Airport Left . For those willing to search for waves I’d be heading South down towards the Uluwatu area on the West and Nusa Dua over on the East. Or wait for the tide to fill in around midday and have a look up along the beach breaks between Kuta and Legian.
Weather wise there’s not a cloud in the sky around this part of the island. So there won’t be any complaints from any one here on holidays today, no sir. Temperature wise on land we’ll be heading for a midday high of around 32 degree’s Celsius and the water temperature couldn’t be better at 23-24 degree’s Celsius.
Swell Prediction : Well unfortunately there’s still nothing but big High Pressure Cells dominating the Indian Ocean so we are going to be in for another week of small but fun sized waves from waist to head high plus at best.
Well Thanks to all the kind hearted folks that have helped us improve the conditions up at the Datah Primary School ! We are making some real progress with the objectives we made, so make sure you check out our progress at the school via the “SCHOOL PROJECT” page over on the menue bar .
