AFTERNOON SURF UP-DATE **** Hello friends and thanks for tuning in for the baliwaves.com daily surf and weather report . This morning the boys from Home Base and I loaded the rental up and headed straight for Secrets over on Bali’s East Coast . As ya’s can see in these latest photos I snapped wave height was rolling through in the 2-3ft+ range. While the wind was blowing cross/off-shore outta the SW @ 10-15knot . I’m pretty much sure that woulda been the same scenario going down at most locations on the East Coast today. Keramas woulda possible been a touch bigger but Rusty (Indonesia) were holding a grommet contest up there today.I’m hoping for even less wind tomorrow and the chance to get out to another different location . But we’ll have to wait and see what the day brings first. Ok I have sent the 3rd Progress Report from the Datah School Project on to Troy to get loaded onto the School Project page. Plus more good news we should have our ’08 tide charts visible on line sometime next week. Weather wise today it was good to have the sun shining over us. Over on the black sanded beach of Secrets the temperature woulda easily busted 30 degree’s on the Celsius scale by midday. Swell prediction (16th-21st), well as long as these bloody T.C’s are spinning down below Indonesia all we can really count on is very short period wind generated swell. But in around another 4 days or so we should see a solid swell hitting our reafs and beachs. The surfer come fishermen , and what else do aging surfers do, can find some new photos on the Fishing Report page . Scott has been loading up Readers Reports from the Super Bank on the Aussie Gold Coast and other locations so make sure ya have a geek at that stuff before ya check out Well Thanks to all the kind hearted folks that have helped us improve the conditions up at the Datah Primary School !
